Hailing from Staten Island and neighbouring boroughs, Wu-Tang Clan are widely-hailed as one of the most important rap / hip-hop collectives of all time. These pioneers presented a more uncompromising and aggressive aspect of the genre than had ever been seen beforehand.
A ten-strong unit, the Wu-Tang Clan have been responsible for some ground-breaking tracks in musical history. In their first full length release “Enter the 36 Chambers” tracks like Protect Ya Neck and Da Mystery of Chessboxin’ were crushingly heavy, aggressive and had some of the tastiest, most amazing rhymes anyone had ever heard, while tracks like C.R.E.A.M and Can It All Be So Simple took a different stance, using soulful backing vocals and piano-loops over which the group laid down incredible raps about the harsh reality of growing up in the New York ghetto.
After releasing their seminal first record the crew (Method Man, RZA, GZA, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, Inspectah Deck, U-God and Masta Killa) were catapulted into absolute fame and stardom as one of the biggest-earning groups in the history of music and were instrumental in turning rap into the biggest music genre in the world today.
In short – the Wu-Tang Clan ain’t nuthin’ ta fuck wit!… and for hardcore fans of the Clan, we have some exclusive and prints on offer.
