The soundtrack coincides with the broadcast of the acclaimed docuseries Wu-Tang Clan: Of Mics and Men, airing on SHOWTIME ® this month
New York, NY – May 15, 2019 – Mass Appeal Records/36 Chambers have announced they are releasing Wu-Tang: Of Mics and Men Soundtrack on Friday, May 17. The soundtrack, which is meant to accompany the critically acclaimed Wu-Tang docuseries airing on SHOWTIME this month, includes new music, plus skits featuring never-before-heard Wu-Tang Clan stories from footage that didn’t make the documentary series’ final cut.
The project is executive produced by Mitchell Diggs and Mustafa Shaikh and features contributions from Ghostface Killah, RZA, Raekwon, Masta Killa and Cappadonna.
Wu-Tang: Of Mics and Men features the classic Wu-Tang lyricism and sound that fans of the iconic group have been yearning for. With the docuseries, Wu-Tang Clan: Of Mics and Men, setting the tone for the project, the Wu-Tang swordsmen deliver rhymes that harken back to the group’s earlier days.
“Wu-Tang Clan: Of Mics and Men is the definitive docuseries that explores and reveals our careers spanning over 25 years. The accompanying soundtrack is a great dose of some of those Men back on those Mics again,” said Wu-Tang member RZA.
Wu-Tang Clan: Of Mics and Men, the four-part limited docuseries from filmmaker Sacha Jenkins (BURN MOTHERF*CKER, BURN!), premiered part one on SHOWTIME on Friday, May 10 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

About Wu-Tang Clan: Of Mics And Men
WU-TANG CLAN: OF MICS AND MEN follows the founding members – RZA, GZA, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Inspectah Deck, Raekwon the Chef, U-God, Ghostface Killah, Method Man, Masta Killa and Cappadonna – many of whom were childhood friends in the hardscrabble world of ’70s and ’80s Staten Island and Brooklyn. It’s a look back on their careers, combining intimate and reflective interviews from each of the nine living members with never-before-seen archival footage and performances. Their ingenuity and entrepreneurial spirit brought them together to overcome the poverty, violence and oppression of their neighborhoods. But it was music and their shared lyrical genius that allowed them to form the most recognized musical movement in the world, all while walking the treacherous tightrope that links business with brotherhood. The docuseries is a Mass Appeal production in association with Endeavor Content. Peter J. Scalettar, Peter Bittenbender and Sacha Jenkins serve as executive producers. All episodes are now streaming on SHOWTIME.
