Once you heard Wu, out of the blue, your family's from Shaolin
The listener in jail heard a Wu-Tang Clan record, revered it for its hard-hitting lyrics and gangsta lifestyle sound, and then told everyone in prison that he was down with Wu-Tang to try to seem hard and important.
It could also allude to people picking up Wu’s slang. That people called it Staten Island before but after they heard Wu-Tang they started calling it Shaolin.
