CA – Raw: My Journey Into the Wu-Tang Signing

Lamont “U-God” Hawkins appears in conversation with Jensen Karp (Drop the Mic) at Vroman’s Bookstore on Friday, March 23, 2018 at 7:00 PM to discuss and sign Raw: My Journey Into the Wu-Tang.

The Wu-Tang Clan are considered hip-hop royalty. Remarkably, none of the founding members have told their story–until now. Here, for the first time, the quiet one speaks.

Lamont “U-God” Hawkins was born in Brownsville, New York, in 1970. Raised by a single mother and forced to reckon with the hostile conditions of project life, U-God learned from an early age how to survive. And surviving in New York City in the 1970s and 1980s was no easy task–especially as a young black boy living in some of the city’s most ignored and destitute districts. But, along the way, he met and befriended those who would eventually form the Clan’s core: RZA, GZA, Method Man, Raekwon, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Inspectah Deck, Ghostface Killah, and Masta Killa. Brought up by the streets, and bonding over their love of hip-hop, they sought to pursue the impossible: music as their ticket out of the ghetto.

U-God’s unforgettable first-person account of his journey, from the streets of Brooklyn to some of the biggest stages around the world, is not only thoroughly affecting, unfiltered, and explosive but also captures, in vivid detail, the making of one of the greatest acts in American music history.

We will be hosting this event outside on the Vroman’s stage!
