Raekwon of Wu-Tang Clan rocks Seahawks hat at Bumbershoot 2014

Posted Aug 31, 2014

Wu-Tang Clan calls for Seahawks Super Bowl repeat to close out their Saturday night set at Bumbershoot 2014.

It's not uncommon for artists on tour to play to their crowds with a shout-out to the local sports team. And when that club is the defending Super Bowl champion, you might even catch your favorite entertainer showcasing some swag from your hometown heroes.

That was the case on Saturday night at the Seattle Center, where legendary New York City-based hip-hop collective Wu-Tang Clan performed to cap off day one of Bumbershoot, the city's annual Labor Day weekend celebration of all things "Art In The Great North Left."

Raekwon, one of the Wu's nine original members, rocked the main stage inside Memorial Stadium with a Seahawks fitted cap, something he picked up earlier in the day from Alive & Well, a skateboard shop in Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood.

The Chef's ode to the reigning NFL champs was one of a handful of Seahawks symbols present throughout Wu-Tang Clan's hour-plus performance, with the rap super-group's parting words calling for a Seahawks Super Bowl repeat.
