Official music video for the track Protect Ya Neck (The Jump Off) by Wu-Tang Clan.
This is the official music video for Wu-Tang Clan’s “Protect Ya Neck”. “Protect Ya Neck” is the American Hip-Hop groups debut single and it is featured on the their first studio album “Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)”. It is possibly one of Wu-Tang Clan’s most popular songs. “Protect Ya Neck” was written by Robert Diggs, Jason Hunter, Lamont Hawkins, Clifford Smith, Corey Woods, Dennis Coles, Russell Jones and Gary Grice and it was produced by RZA aka Prince Rakeem. The song features 8 out of 9 of the original Wu-Tang Clan’s band members.
The music video for “Protect Ya Neck” features each members of the band dressed in black and white with an entourage standing the background. When each band member raps their verse their stage name appears on the screen. The video is shot in black and white although there are some occasional scenes where they show the Wu-Tang Clan as a full group, these scenes were shot in colour and are flashed on screen for a couple of second. Also during both Raekwon and Method Man’s verses there is what would be known now as a cameo appearance from Cappadonna who wasn’t that well known at the time of the video.
