The first trailer for Wu-Tang Clan: Of Mics and Men gives viewers a taste of a new four-part doc on one of most influential hip-hop groups of all time.

Packed with interviews from surviving members and archival footage captured over the Wu Tang Clan's nearly three-decade career, the Showtime series promises to transcend "the music documentary genre by creating a new lane that merges music, socio-cultural commentary and intimate family portrait." 

That mission is exemplified by a quote from RZA on the rap troupe's racially diverse audience. 

"The black, red, yellow, brown and white were all rocking with us," RZA says.

Showtime executive Vinnie Malhotra described the Wu-Tang Clan's cultural impact in a statement published in part by Rolling Stone

“The Wu-Tang Clan is a seminal group that deserves a seminal documentary. [Director] Sacha Jenkins delivers just that, not only reminding us of their powerful history through vintage footage, but also placing their impact in modern-day perspective that will be meaningful both to their diehard fans and music fans in general.”

The first two episodes of Wu-Tang Clan: Of Mics and Men premiere Monday, January 28 at the Sundance Film Festival before the full series airs on Showtime this spring.
