The Wu-Tang Clan began a celebration of the 25th anniversary of the group’s debut album last year, and they continued with a double barrel blast of shows at Franklin Music Hall in Philadelphia on Jan. 24 and 25. I was there for the second night to capture a lot of images of the legendary rappers as they continued their salute to Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers).

The legendary Wu-Tang Clan will gather at Franklin Music Hall in Philadelphia for two nights — Thursday, Jan. 24, and Friday, Jan. 25. Friday is sold out, but you can see Wu-Tang tonight! Check out our recap of their recent appearance in DC at The Anthem and make plans to see these masters of hip hop.

Rapper, actor, and fashion trendsetter A$AP Rocky made a recent stop at The Anthem as part of his Injured Generation Tour. A fleet of 18-wheelers with the bits and parts for an insane production likely followed the high-octane emcee. The intricate stage design for the sold-out performance was unlike any that I’ve seen at the DC venue.

Thanks to Dave Mays (founder of The Source Magazine), Jeremy Beaver (owner of Listen Vision Studios/founder of Hip-Hop Museum), and Culture House (formerly Blind Whino), DC has yet another museum to add to its proverbial list.

A$AP Rocky released Testing, his third studio album, last year via ASAP Worldwide, Polo Grounds Music, and RCA Records. The experimental rapper is on the road, and he performs at The Anthem on Sunday, Jan. 20!

Pressure makes diamonds — and as far as hip-hop goes, Freddie Gibbs is a cut above the rest. The versatile emcee dug deep into his discography during a recent performance at DC’s U Street Music Hall. The Gary, Indiana rhymer’s performance catered to both his gangster rap fans and underground hip-hop aficionados.
