Wu-Tang Clan Debut ‘A Better Tomorrow,’ Perform ‘Ruckus’ on ‘Late Show With David Letterman’ [VIDEO]
The Wu-Tang Clan ain't nothing to f--- with so they brought the ruckus to the 'Late Show With David Letterman' this week. The legendary rap group performed 'Ruckus in B Minor,' which is from their upcoming album, 'A Better Tomorrow.'
Only about half of the group was present for their late-night performance. The RZA led it off with a brief introduction and Masta Killa, Inspectah Deck, U-God, Cappadonna and Method Man represented on the microphone.
Mr. Tical was the most energetic out of the crew, commanding the audience to chant No. 1.
"I can see your drawers, pull your pants up / Can't even call yourself a man until you man up," he raps, adding "Wu-Tang forever, and we're still Number One!"
Last week, Wu-Tang released their latest single 'Necklace' off 'A Better Tomorrow,' which arrives in stores on Dec. 2. One of the more solid efforts on the LP is the title track, which samples 'Wake Up Everybody' by Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes. RZA, who creates a sonic gem with this production, keeps Teddy Pendergrass’ lead vocals for the hook.
Method Man kicks off the track, motivating listeners to get on their grind. "Wake up, get a hold of your life, go get your cake up,” he raps. The rest of the Clan serve lyrics detailing struggle and strife, injustice and police brutality. In Meth's words, "we still ain't got a pot to piss in."
