Wu-Tang Triumph First Million Dollar Video

One of the best hip hop videos to ever be created.

Celebrating the release of the DVD The Shooter Series Vol. 1 Brett Ratner, the director reveals to Complex, that the Clan’s “Triumph” video cost 1 million dollars. That’s a lot of Wu-Wear jackets.

It was the first million dollar rap video. When Steve Rifkind asked me, I said, ‘Are you sure about this record? There’s no chorus!’ He says “Trust me, its gonna be the biggest record of the year. Only Wu-Tang could pull this off.’ So, I set up the video—Joseph Kahn was my cinematographer. I hear that they want eleven Suburbans—they each want their own. They each also want $50,000 worth of gear, and they told me all their designers. So first day, these guys are walking in one at a time, and each guy walks into the dressing room, and walks out with plastic bags filled with all the clothes. I called Steve like, ‘They’re stealing all the clothes!’ He’s like, ‘Don’t worry, let them have it.’”
