The Wu-Tang Clan will live on forever in New York City's streets.


The city has designated a section of Staten Island, the borough otherwise known to Wu-Tang fans as Shaolin, as the Wu-Tang District to celebrate the legendary hip-hop group's influence and contributions to the world.Local officials, fans and members of the community gathered in the neighborhood of Park Hill on Saturday to unveil the sign that made it official.

“I never saw this day coming,” Ghostface Killah said in a speech at the event, CNN reports. “I knew we were some ill MCs, but I didn't know that it'd take it this far.”

“This is a great day where we have an opportunity to honor our own hometown heroes, the young men who put Staten Island on the map internationally,” said councilwoman Debbie Rose, SILive reports. “They overcame all types of challenges, to not only become rap artist and hip-hop artist but to inspire and challenge the music world.”
