Eva Ries reads: Wu-Tang is forever
The Wu-Tang Clan is one of the most successful bands in hip-hop history and at the same time feared like no other. Nine angry gangsta rappers from the New York ghetto, whose lives are marked by crime, drugs and violence, manage to radically turn the music business upside down and leave their mark on hip-hop.
Eva Ries was in her late 20s when she received an offer that would change her career forever: she was to promote and market the Wu-Tang Clan worldwide for the record label Loud/RCA Records in New York City. Working with nine convicted gangsta rappers without any experience in hip-hop – will that go well?
Despite all doubts, Eva Ries rises to the challenge. For over two decades, she accompanied the Wu-Tang Clan through ups and downs and earned the respect of men. In her stylishly designed and image-rich book "Wu-Tang is forever: In the closest circle of the biggest band in the world" with numerous previously unpublished photos, the author gives personal, unembellished and exclusive insights into the world of the Wu-Tang Clan and the music business of the 90s.
"No one is closer to the Wu-Tang Clan than Eva, no one could have written this book like she did." – Kool Savas
Eva Ries is Managing Director of RZA Productions Europe as well as a counselor and university lecturer in psychology. Prior to that, she worked for many years in marketing for major music companies, including the legendary hip-hop label Loud Records in New York. Today, after more than 25 years in the USA, she lives with her family in Mannheim again.
