Wu-Tang Clan's Got Extended Family in South Florida

Nearly 20 years after the Wu-Tang Clan's ascent from Staten Island, there's a hip-hop group hailing from the admittedly less gritty streets of West Palm Beach ready to extend the Wu's influence southward. Nearly every reference to the Watchmen trumps them as "Wu-Tang Affiliates," and with the RZA's cousin John "Mook" Gibbons and Wu-Tang management steering the group, it's no stretch.

According to a recent news release, Watchmen has set September 14 release date for its self-titled double album -- and the biggest name from the Wu extended family touching the proceedings so far is a collaboration with Cappadonna, who has appeared on numerous Wu-Tang releases and is often credited at the unofficial tenth member.

Although the news release also mentions a 25-city promotional tour, no dates are listed.
