watch Wu-Tang Clan play with Khruangbin at Desert Daze
Wu-Tang Clan headlined the final night of Desert Daze on Sunday (10/13) as part of a year-long 25th anniversary celebration of the Staten Island hip hop icons’ debut album, Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). Method Man was not there, and Stereogum notes that Ghostface Killah was not seen on stage, so it wasn’t a full performance of the landmark album, but they played the lion’s share of the LP, and then had a surprise for the crowd. They brought out Texas psych-funk group Khruangbin, who played right before them on The Moon stage, to back them on “Protect Ya Neck (The Jump Off).” The trio are known to throw a medley tribute to ’90s hip hop into their sets and were up to the task; you can watch video of that below, and a few pics from Desert Daze are in the gallery above.
It was a busy weekend for Wu-Tang Clan, having played NYC’s Rolling Loud festival the day before.
Meanwhile, on Saturday at Desert Daze, The Locust returned for their first show in four years.
