RZA from the Wu Tang Clan has, er, launched online chess portal "WuChess"
Guess this is what it means when they say something has “come out of left field.”
And yes, it’s called WuChess.com – and it’s your place to meet like-minded chess players who are also into the lyrical poetry that is RZA’s solo work and his occasional Wu Tang output. Here’s how they describe it:
“WuChess is a new online chess + hip-hop community that will offer live game play, chat rooms, tournaments, lessons and exhibitions featuring RZA and special guests.”
Conservative estimates conducted by me, just now, put the demographic crossover of Wu Tang-loving chess players at approximately six people on the face of the planet. But you never know.
At the moment there’s only a holding page and official blog in place, with the full Wu Tang Chess Experience(TM) due to roll out in a couple of weeks.
