So, when the Wu’s verified Twitter account announces an amendment to the elements of Hip Hop, people will likely listen. On Thursday (July 12), Wu-Tang tweeted that gaming has been added to list of MCing, DJing, graffiti writing, breaking and — depending on who you ask — knowledge.
“Gaming is now one of the elements of Hip Hop,” the tweet read. “That’s right. You heard it here first. #WuTang.”
The tweet came with two photos of a Wu-Tang logo controller and the Playstation game, Wu-Tang: Shaolin Style, which was released in 1999.

According to Amazon, only one unopened copy of Wu-Tang: Shaolin Style is currently available at a bargain price of $120, although there are several used copies for sale.
The nearly 20-year-old video game was based on Wu-Tang’s stage personas and set to the legendary group’s martial arts-themed music.
