“When it comes to the children, Wu-Tang is for the children. We teach the children.” Back in 1998, Ol’ Dirty Bastard stormed the stage during the Grammy Awards and interrupted the acceptance speech for Song Of The Year with those words. Since then, the phrase “Wu-Tang is for the children” has become iconic and taken on a life of its own. It has been the source of countless memes, punchlines and more. Recently, however, an artist who was inspired by Wu-Tang Clan took the turn of phrase to a deeper place and created a work of art that merged the legendary Wu “W” logo with one of the most important issues facing all children on Earth: climate change.
