Hailing from Staten Island, Wu-Tang Clan are widely-hailed as one of the most important hip-hop collectives of all time. Pioneers of the hardcore hip-hop movement, they presented a more uncompromising and aggressive aspect of the genre than had ever been seen before.
A ten-strong unit, Wu-Tang Clan has been responsible for some ground-breaking tracks. Protect Ya Neck might have more than a whiff of old-school about it, but its urgency makes it sounds as fresh as the day it was released.
C.R.E.A.M took a different stance, using soulful backing vocals and a simple piano-loop over which Raekwon and Inspectah Deck rap about the harsh reality of life in New York. Even in the early Noughties, the Clan maintained their old-school approach. Uzi (Pinky Ring) is a prime example of their masterful ability with beats, loops and incisive wordplay. For hardcore fans of the Clan, we have some exclusive posters and collector’s pictures on offer.
