Wu-tang Clan Rework The Beatles
Rap supergroup the WU-TANG CLAN are giving the BEATLES an urban twist by reworking the Fab Four's WHILE MY GUITAR GENTLY WEEPS with GEORGE HARRISON's son for a new album.
Group member RZA has revealed the eight-piece's fifth album, 8 Diagrams, will feature the track Gently Weeps, which heavily samples the Beatles classic.
And, to give the new version the stamp of approval, the Wu-Tang Clan asked Dhani Harrison to join them in the studio.
Red Hot Chili Peppers star John Frusciante also joins the group on the track.
RZA admits he called Harrison and asked him to play on Gently Weeps after hearing he was a big fan of the rappers.
He says, "He's the biggest Wu-Tang fan in the world... I told him I would be honoured if he played his father's song."
