The group's residency is described as "a tribute to their prolific careers as individuals and as the most storied group in hip-hop history."

"Vegas has always served as a hub for art, entertainment and good times," Wu-Tang founding member, RZA, said in a news release. "Wu-Tang is delighted to add our flavor of art and hip-hop into the mix. Virgin + Wu-Tang = Triumph."

Wu-Tang went from being a group of local rappers in Staten Island, New York, to become one of the most prominent hip-hop troupes after releasing their critically-acclaimed 1993 debut album "Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)." The group included RZA, GZA, Method Man, Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, Inspectah Deck, U-God, Masta Killa, the late Ol’ Dirty Bastard and longtime collaborator Cappadonna.

Some of the members branched out into solo careers through Wu-Tang’s success. Raekwon, GZA, O.D.B., Ghostface Killah and Method Man released successful solo studio albums while RZA continued to make a name for himself as a producer, actor and director.
