Thirty years in the game and Wu-Tang Clan is still making moves. While Raekwon is currently on tour with his “Community Linx” project with Diadora and Foot Locker, the whole crew will be embarking on a nationwide joint tour with Nas later this year. The legendary hip-hop crew is also keeping busy in the digital world, having just announced a collaboration with Fortnite.
The Wu is brings a style revolution to Fortnite Island with the launch of a variety of Wu Wear in-game items, including new Outfits, Back Blings, and Pickaxes. Other in-game items include the “Wu-Tang is Forever” emote, “Wu-Tang Style” loading screen, and “Shimmy Surfer” glider. To celebrate the collaboration, Wu-Tang is also dropping a full capsule of real-world Wu-Tang x Fortnite gear, including physical versions of in-game looks.
“Fortnite has been in my household for years,” says RZA, aka Bobby Digital. “It’s been a pleasure and joy watching the game evolve, while becoming the go-to pastime. This collaboration is a multigenerational ‘drip’ of swag and cool.”
The in-game Wu-Tang Fortnite items will be available starting Saturday, April 23rd, at 8pm ET. The real-world Wu-Tang x Fortnite apparel will launch at the same time on the Wu-Tang Clan webstore.
