It's no secret that members of the Wu-Tang Clan love epic warrior battles (you can pretty much guess that by the name of the group). Now Wu-Tang star RZA is bringing his love of chess skirmishes online: He's starting a social network geared toward chess players within the hip-hop community
The site, WuChess.com
, will allow players to interact with instant messages and live chat, as well as clash against one another in the ancient war game. A portion of the money raised by the site will go toward funding college scholarships.
Our question is: Will the site have a kung fu element? (We're willing to bet it will.)
We imagine a battle-chess style game, possibly featuring katana-wielding Afro-Samurais.
Now that RZA has conquered music, movies and chess, what's next? Find out after the jump.
Love movies based on video games? Who doesn't?
