“Wu-Tang Killa Beez, we on a swarm/Wu-Tang Killa Beez, we on a swarm”, we may forget about this but we hear this since 1993. These bars from “Clan in the front” are the most clear mention of one of the frequent metaphors of the Shaolin unit called Wu Tang Clan: the killer bee.
Think about it: a killer bee may be little in dimensions compared to the other animals of the urban jungle but one single sting and you are dead. This is exactly what the collective of MCs meant: each of us has a style of rhyming that may kill you just like the sting of these insects.
The metaphor gets stronger if you think that even the cover of “Enter the Wu Tang” was black and white with a yellow Wu sign so it all revolves around these colors. Today we find them on an item part of Pelle Pelle x Wu Tang collaboration capsule.
It’s not the first time that we venture in this section of Pelle Pelle proposal. We started last month with Nothing Ta Fuck With t-shirt and this is Batlogo Mix Hoodie. On this item there is a correct display of Wu Tang colors but this time they are switched.
How many times did you see a Wu Tang merchandising item with the yellow Wu sign on a black background?! Here the game has been switched to give to this item a strong impact and as you can see from these pictures of Giorgia G the mission is all but impossible.
The Wu Tang logo here maintains its original font but there is Pelle Pelle written inside the W instead of the name of the clique. The black lined hoodie makes this item stand out with finesse. Wu Tang and Pelle Pelle branding close to the hem front and back confirms that you are rolling with the best. The whole capsule collection is available through Italian distributor Out of Mind or shopping online on Pelle Pelle website. Can it all be so simple?
