Showtime has released the official trailer for its upcoming documentary, Wu-Tang: Of Mics and Men. The four-part docu-series provides a new perspective on one of the most iconic groups in the history of hip-hop. It’s directed by Sacha Jenkins, the same man who gave the Wu-Tang Clan’s first magazine cover back in the ’90s. The series will look at the history of Wu-Tang Clan from their humble beginnings in Staten Island to selling out arenas around the world. It includes brand new interviews with all of the living members including Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, Method Man, and more. Never-before-seen archival footage and performances will also be included.
The first two episodes of Wu-Tang: of Mics and Men will screen at the Sundance Film Festival this month, before the entire documentary airs on Showtime later this year. An exact release date has yet to be announced, but the premier is slated for Spring 2019.
It’s an embarrassment of riches for fans of the legendary rap group, after Hulu recently announced a 10-episode scripted series called Wu-Tang: An American Saga. And if you don’t feel like waiting for either of these projects to drop, you can always check out the documentary For the Children: 25 Years of Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), which the group dropped in December of last year.
