If your holiday season wouldn’t be complete without a few words from your friendly neighborhood Wu-Tang Clan tomorrow will be your lucky day. The influential Staten Island collective comprised of RZA, GZA, Raekwon, Ghostface Kilah, Masta Killa, U-God and Method Man is widely considered to be the best hip-hop group of all time. The clan brings almost twenty years of rhymes, swagger and chopped-up soul samples to The State Theatre in Falls Church.
