Wu-Tang Clan founder and super-producer the RZA will be a featured guest on MNET America’s pop culture program “Beats Per MNET” (BPM) alongside street wear icon Jeff Staple and burgeoning Toronto rap duo The Airplane Boys will also get some airtime tonight at 9 p.m. ET. Hosts Jelynn Sophia and TK Nguyen will hand over their microphone duties to Staple and RZA as they break down how they’ve achieved their status and business savvy.
The segment featuring the pair, “Artist x Artist,” will highlight how RZA has built the Wu-tang brand to its now-legendary heights, which is now approaching two decades of existence. Already a noted creative genius, RZA will also speak on how he breaks bread with corporate heads to keep the Wu flag waving high.
Staple and his Reed Space store and brand, has catapulted him as a legend and expert amongst street wear enthusiasts worldwide. Staple has worked with fashion and footwear giants Nike and Timberland, among others, and continues to keep a pulse on the hot trends in street fashion.
Along with RZA and Jeff Staple, The Airplane Boys will be showcased, this after their recent big ticket performance at this year’s Coachella festival. The Boys have opened up for rising rap stars such as Kendrick Lamar and Big Sean and even vets such as Snoop Dogg. “Beats Per MNET” will also troop over to the “land down under” and go behind the scenes of an Australian b-boy competition that is said to feature some of the world’s best dancers.
