Know Your Crew: Supreme Court or Wu Tang Clan?

Know Your Crew: Supreme Court or Wu Tang Clan?

If you’re like us, you probably had this problem happen before. At a party, on the streets, or in the courtroom, you can’t figure out if people are referencing members of the United States Supreme Court or the Wu-Tang Clan.

Both crews have nine members, both have elaborate nicknames and aliases, and both have, at some point, had an “ol’ dirty bastard” amongst their members (we’re looking at you, Alito).

Use this easy guide to know when people are talking about the highest court in the land, or the killa beez from 10304, Staten Island, NY.

Much respect to both.
