Raekwon with the front-row seat.
A new street at the southeast corner of Vanderbilt Avenue and Targee Street in Staten Island has officially been named Wu-Tang Clan District by the city of New York.
Yesterday, at what Raekwon referred to as the “Wu Inauguration,” hundreds gathered to celebrate the unveiling of the street’s sign at a naming ceremony. The Chef was front row for the ribbon-cutting, sharing a clip of the moment the installation was unwrapped. The Wu-Tang Clan District dedication was one of three new street names unanimously approved by New York City Council to honor musicians with deep ties to the boroughs, including The Notorious B.I.G. and Woody Guthrie.
And it lines up well with the rest of the festivities. The group is currently on tour in celebration of their debut album’s 25th-anniversary, while their four-part docuseries, Of Mics and Men, premieres next Friday, May 10th, on Showtime.
