Posted By on October 3, 2007

Wu-Tang Clan have made "history" as they have become the first group to be granted permission to sample The Beatles.

The collective have covered the song While My Guitar Gently Weeps with George Harrison's son Dhani Harrison, as we reported in August, but now the track will also include a sample of the original song.

Speaking on the official Wu-Tang Clan website, the group posted the following message: "Special thanks to Danny [sic] Harrison & Erykah Badu for helping bring this song to life!! Also thanks to The Harrison Estate & The Beatles for helping make this possible!!"

However, they have also pushed back the long awaited release of new album 8 Diagrams to December 4th.
