Plot Synopsis

From filmmaker Sacha Jenkins, WU-TANG CLAN: OF MICS AND MEN is a four-part limited docuseries that looks back on Wu-Tang's career, combining intimate and reflective interviews from each of the nine living members with never-before-seen archival footage and performances. The series 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. 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. Jenkins' relationship with the group dates back to the early '90s when, as a co-founding publisher of one of hip-hop's first zines, Beat Down, he gave the group its first cover. WU-TANG CLAN: OF MICS AND MEN debuted at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival.
On Friday, May 31, 2019 at 9pm ET/PT, Showtime premiered the finale of WU-TANG CLAN: OF MICS AND MEN. Twenty-five years in, a family meditates on its affairs and looks to cement a legacy. 'Ol Dirty is dead. Everybody has gone solo. The 'W' is starting to fade. The RZA embarks on a world tour with Wu-Tang Superfan Cilvaringz. Under RZA's tutelage, Cilvaringz becomes a rapper and producer in his own right, but differences over Cilvaringz's album create a new crisis for the Wu. Yet through it all, Wu-Tang Clan, their logo, their music, their message and their story remain indelible fixtures in the cultural history of music and America.
