If there’s a message that’s endured hip-hop’s last two decades, it’s that Wu-Tang Clan ain’t nothing to fuck with.
That’s the attitude that’s allowed rap’s most revered posse to endure releases ranging from the wildly mediocre to the entirely bizarre; it’s what’s helped us look past things like The W—though “Gravel Pit” was the jam—and whatever the Bobby Digital experiment was supposed to be. Because ultimately, we might think we know better, but in the end, they’re truly not ones to be fucked with. For every clumsy “Protect Ya Neck” sequel there’s a Cuban Linx.
And, apropos of all that, but also nothing, here’s something almost entirely different: A cover of that iconic song, with that iconic message, constructed entirely out of scenes from the movies.
Featuring everyone from Richard Attenborough to Toy Story’s Tom Hanks voiced Woody, this 2-minute truncated cover gets smoother as it goes along. Surely it’s a gimmick, but it’s one we can get behind. For fun, try to see how many movies you can pick out—it moves fast, but hell if it isn’t a fun test to try. [h/t Stanton Warriors]
