Popa Wu: Wu-Tang Clan "Turned Out Bigger Than The Beatles"

Popa Wu says "they loved us 'cause of what we were saying."

Sitting down with ForbezDVDPromo, Wu-Tang Clan mentor and affiliate Popa Wu shared his thoughts on the impact of the group throughout the 1990s.

“You can’t go through me nor around me to get to my brother,” he said, apparently speaking to the strength of the group dynamic. “That’s how we always was and the media—as you get bigger and bigger, I watched us go from children that had nothing and took nothing to make something and turned out bigger than The Beatles.

“We got attacked like that sometimes,” he added. “I didn’t even know what was going on ‘cause I was just the road manager and I’m scared to death. I’d jump under the table. It was real like that. But I didn’t know people loved it like that. And they loved us ‘cause of what we were saying. It was different than what anybody else was saying. We was telling them the truth through our music to all the youth in the street. We was giving them knowledge of themselves...Knowledge means to know and look, listen, and deserve. You have to deserve the things that you around. We in the Universe man and this is hell. It was prefixed for us. It was ordained for you to come through a womb and go through hell first before you could see heaven. But it wasn’t above your head nor was hell below your feet. You put these things there. Heaven is not above your head nor hell below your feet. Heaven and hell is within. Heaven is what you make it and hell is what you got to go through. But most of the time you put yourself through hell. So you got to learn what you put yourself through to come out right. [Ol’] Dirty put himself through everything he did and he came out. He came out. He came out and we are still in.”

Popa Wu is the father of other Wu-Tang Clan affiliate ShaCronz and Free Murda and a member of the Five Percent Nation. Earlier this year he spoke about the still-developing story of the making of the group’s forthcoming A Better Tomorrow. “It’s here already,” the Wu-Tang Clan mentor said in January. "It’s just that it’s got to be closed up by Rae[kwon]. Rae’s the only one that’s got to close up. Everybody did what they did…They even got the treatments for videos and all that shit. RZA’s ahead of his game right now. It’s just that Raekwon’s just compromising…you know how a person gets…when you’re a person that never had nothing and then when you get something and then its [taken] away from you, it’s hard to adjust back.”

  • Mack

    The Beatles are a glorified Boy Band. Guarantee when all the One Direction fans become soccer moms and housewives, they'll be waxing poetic about the depth of these clowns music, writing essays etc. about what they meant to them. Look how they're trying to make Justin Timberlake look like fuckin Sinatra out here. Justin Fuckin Timberlake! lol. Ringo Starr can't drum (not like a Ginger Baker anyways) and Paul McCartney and John Lennon were simplistic songwriters, nowhere near a Smokey Robinson or even a Billy Joel or a Paul Simon. Their shit was made for teenagers and they barely evolved from that shit. All they did was take psychedelic drugs and started to write weird shit which their fans, also drug addled, gobbled up. They started looking for meaning in the songs that weren't even there. Great to see all these white boys on a hip-hop site standing up for the Beatles. Your complex can't even make you see past the hype. Boy bands + time + nostalgia = icons. Even the Beatles told you they took shit from Muddy Waters, Motown, etc...Considering where Wu Tang came from and how far they came, I'd say is no small feat. Let Poppa Wu fly the flag for his team. This is Hip-Hop

    • Johnny Blaze

      You are such a waste of time Mack. You use an example of one of their most simplistic songs to try and prove they are simplistic song writers. That song may be simple, but the message of the song more than makes up for the simplicity. The Beatles are not my perception of genius, they are just an example. There is genius in many different things for many different reasons. And lastly, I won't mind if I do go strum my guitar. Unlike you, I had the dedication and patience to learn how to play the guitar, which is also the same reason I would be able to rap circles around you.

Not because your ho ass mama raised you on whatever teen beat faggotry she had on her wall and passed it down to your clown ass as genius makes it deep . Passive aggressive punk ass white boy. Go strum your guitar and read RollingStone Magazine Clown. Keep getting offended. I love it. Sad that your perception of genius is a boy band manufactured by a fuckin record label. I don't think WU is genius either. You're no better than these little chicks choosing who's their favorite One Direction member. Give them time to grow up..They'll be tryna push their concept of genius on the next man too. On a Rap site of all places. What I said was coherent "as fuck". Now go write me a thousand page essay about yellow submarines and eat a dick "I Want To Hold Your Hand" Oh yeah, I'll tell you something I think you'll understand When I'll say that something I wanna hold your hand I wanna hold your hand I wanna hold your hand Oh please, say to me You'll let me be your man And please, say to me You'll let me hold your hand I'll let me hold your hand I wanna hold your hand And when I touch you I feel happy Inside It's such a feeling that my love I can't hide I can't hide I can't hide Yeah, you've got that something I think you'll understand When I'll say that something I wanna hold your hand I wanna hold your hand I wanna hold your hand And when I touch you I feel happy Inside It's such a feeling that my love I can't hide I can't hide I can't hide Yeah, you've got that something I think you'll understand When I'll feel that something I wanna hold your hand I wanna hold your hand I wanna hold your hand I wanna hold your hand Poet Laureate

      hahahahahahaha he said john lennon was a simplistic song writer...i was gonna write a big hate filled paragraph in response, but after that statement, it is clear you have no knowledge on the beatles or music in general and it would be a waste of both of out times...and comparing the beatles to one direction? thats like comparing fucking Screech to Al Pacino.....and you say there songs are all weird from the psychadelics? youve obviously never understood the meaning to "imagine" or "working class hero"....just because your too fuckin dumb to comprehend genius doesnt mean your the smart one......and btw i like wu tang more than the beatles, im just not an incoherent fuck like you Mack

    "Brick Mansions is bombing hard with only 9 million, compared to other woman's 25 million." BM's is a low budget movie that was probably going STV. Then Walker died and they probably thought they could make a quick buck by throwing it in theatres for a few weeks. The Other Woman is a rom com, & has a popular female star. I'm surprised it didn't make more.

      MJ adored The Beatle's and bought a lot of their masters. Both MJ and The Beatles both had massive impacts on the lives of many. I was a huge MJ fan growing up but hardly listen to his music any longer, listen to The Beatles all the time, though. The Wu can't compare to any of these two acts or many alike them, it seems to be something that they do constantly. They compared their new album to Mozart, they are crazy with it. Good music but not great.

      Fueled by females, 20th Century Fox's comedy The Other Woman topped the Friday box office with a strong $9.3 million from 3,205 theaters for a projected $25 million weekend. That's enough to unseat blockbuster Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which has been No. 1 for three consecutive weekends. Winter Soldier grossed $4.5 million Friday from 3,620 locations to come in No. 2. The superhero tentpole should earn between $15 million and $16 million for the weekend, putting its domestic total north of $222 million. IN other words, its going to be no. 1 for the weekend. Nicki Minaj is now ruiling the film charts. Also, YMCMB had more platinum and gold albums than the wu faggots.

    If you really want something original to add to your album collection, then I suggest you go cop that new Mastermind, available now in stores and on iTunes. It's truly a classic with no filler, no skits, all originality. Ross proves to us that he has a far greater penchant for picking beats than Nas'. Hopefully, when Ross reaches another couple decades in the game, he'll hire some up-and-coming producer to create "Port of Miami - 20 year anniversary", the shit will be an even bigger classic than it is today #bawse

    Uhhh I'm no fan of The Beatles, in fact I can't stand most of their stuff, and I like the Wu, but in no way is Wu-Tang bigger than the biggest band ever...

    Well, the Beatles sold about 600 million total albums, while the Wu sold about 40 million total albums (including solo projects)... but facts never mattered much to the so-called "5 percenters"

      but if you're fighting you can't really make good music if you're not all on the same page, wu-tang is fighting, they ain't on the same page, ODB is dead and Rae wants nothing to do with it. Wu-Tang is dead.

      The beatles quit because they were fighting, not because they knew their work became shitty. You obviously some white parent who hates hiphop.

      How you say he's wrong and then defend his point? You were trying to troll with the YMCMB part but for the former you just showed how illiterate you are. "The Beatles knew when to call it quits" "wrong they called it quits at the right time." Stay in school.

      "The beatles quit because they couldn't stand each other. " Wu-Tang clearly can't stand each other, they should know it's time to call it quits.

      Wrong. The beatles quit because they couldn't stand each other. Their work was already becoming wack and if they had continued, they would be falling out of the charts. YMCMB is dope.
