Several members of the Wu-Tang Clan, including Raekwon and Inspectah Deck, expressed their support for the Colorado Buffaloes, one of the NCAA’s most talked-about teams, on Saturday. The rappers’ endorsement was captured in a video shared on social media by the Buffaloes’ official team. They praised the efforts of Deion Sanders, also known as Coach Prime, in his role with the University of Colorado – Boulder’s athletic department. The video was released just before the eagerly awaited game against the Nebraska Cornhuskers.
The excitement was palpable among college sports fans who took to X (formerly Twitter) to react to the Wu-Tang Clan’s presence at Folsom Field, home of the Buffaloes. One fan commented on the cultural shift they were witnessing, dubbing it “The Prime Effect.” Another fan gave a shoutout to Raekwon The Chef, while another referenced the Wu-Tang Clan’s famous slogan, “Wu-Tang Clan Ain’t Nun To Mess With.”
The Wu-Tang Clan are not the only celebrities showing their support for the Buffaloes, either in person or from home. A large number of people tuned in to watch the team’s surprising victory over the TCU Horn Frogs on September 2, which is exactly what Coach Sanders had hoped for.
