Wu-Tang Clan-Inspired By The Climate Change Mural Opened In Staten Island
The mural has enlisted the support of Redman and Mathematics.
Staten Island, NY – Local area artist Cody Prez has brought on a literal storm to Staten Island with its 2,000 square feet. ft., Wu-Tang Clan-inspired mural, "Climate Change is not Nuttin To Mess With."
Taking its name from the Wu-Tang Clan classic, "Wu-Tang Clan Ain t Nuthing ta Fuck Wit," Prez initially designed the mural during the Hurricane Maria, and present a similar, scaled-down version of the final mural on his Instagram page.
Prez, then partnered with Staten Island Arts and the City of New York, Department of Cultural Affairs to place a large-scale version of the mural painting in the building of the Richmond Hood Company. Richmond Hood, a Staten Island clothing atelier, is located in the famous "Artist Alley" in the district.

The mural has so much direct involvement and blessing of several Wu-Tang members and Redman, and Prez received the help of the children in IS61. Using the hashtag #HurricaneWu, Prez not only created a community-based project, but spoke about issues in the world through the promotion of climate change awareness. The goal with the #HurricaneWu initiative is to awaken the interest of the younger generations, which will ultimately grow on the legislators who can re-implement the environmental legislation.
