Casio America, Inc. announced that G-SHOCK and legendary hip-hop group Wu-Tang Clan have connected once again to release the GM6900WTC22-9 in celebration of the Wu-Tang Clan’s 30th anniversary. The model is a humble flex for fans of the lyricists and G-SHOCK, and also a bold reminder of hip-hop’s half-a-century influence on street fashion and culture.
The GM6900WTC22-9 features Wu-Tang Clan’s iconic “Killer Bees” black and yellow color combination branded with their unmistakable “W” logo on the band and dial and “WU-TANG” displayed within the electro-luminescent backlight that illuminates with an afterglow. This model sports an elevated stainless steel black IP bezel — an upgrade from the previous version — that represents the evolution of both the hip-hop group and the 6900-case design. In addition to the “W” logo, one of Wu-Tang Clan’s most memorable lyrics, “Cash Rules Everything Around Me C.R.E.A.M.” is printed around the border of the black mirror-finished dial.
Whether hanging around in the “Mysterious Land of Shaolin,” Staten Island, New York, where the group formed, or any other region, the impact of their music has a lasting presence due to the group’s influence on new rappers from the West Coast to the South.
The GM6900WTC22-9 offers the absolute toughness you expect from a G-SHOCK and will remain a staple in street fashion, just as Wu-Tang Clan remains a household name in hip-hop.
