Wu-Tang Clan Hosting Weeklong Conference in DC



Eaton DC's "The Rise Above Residency" honors the legacy and cultural impact of the hip-hop group


The chic and eclectic DC hotel known for its warm and residential appeal vibe is hosting a weeklong conference honoring the global cultural impact of the Wu-Tang Clan.

Starting Wednesday September 22, the Eaton DC will play host to “The Rise Above Residency,” a series of events built around the legacy of the seminal hip-hop group. The conference is being organized by Oliver “Power” Grant, who executive produced all of the rap group’s albums and founded the Wu-Tang-inspired clothing line known as Wu Wear.

The schedule for the week includes a Saturday panel discussion—narrated by DC writer Jason Reynolds—about Wu-Tang’s intellectual legacy, screenings of the Kung-Fu movies that became part of the group’s aesthetic, an exhibition of rare photos, and a Wu-Tang style trap yoga session. The hotel’s bar will also feature a series of “Killa Bees Kickbacks,” Wu-Tang-inspired cocktails. Those attending this event will also have the opportunity to get limited-edition Wu-Tang merchandise available for purchase.

On Wednesday night, there will be a watch party for the newest episode of Hulu’s Wu-Tang: An American Saga, which premiered on the streaming channel this week.
