Biography

Staten Island, New York (1992 – present)

Wu-Tang Clan (pronounced /ˈwuːtæŋ/) is a hip-hop group that consists of: RZA, GZA/Genius, Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Method Man, Inspectah Deck, U-God, and Masta Killa. They are frequently joined by fellow childhood friend Cappadonna, a quasi member of the group. They were formed in (and are associated with) the New York City borough of Staten Island (referred to by members as “Shaolin”), though Masta Killa and GZA are from Brooklyn and Inspectah Deck is from the Bronx. They have gone on to become multi-platinum record producers, Grammy winners, TV and film stars, screenwriters, product spokespersons, business owners and, most recently, major motion picture composers. The Clan featured nine MCs until the death of Ol’ Dirty Bastard in 2004. One of the most critically and commercially successful groups of all time, Wu-Tang Clan shot to fame through their uncompromising brand of hardcore rap music. Since their debut, they have introduced or launched the careers of numerous other artists and groups, and already in 1994 there were credited to be over 300 Wu-Tang Clan affiliates, known as the Wu-Tang Killa Bees, consisting of rappers, producers, and record label CEOs.

The founders of the Wu-Tang Clan were RZA, GZA, and Ol’ Dirty Bastard, who had previously formed the group Force of the Imperial Master (later known as All In Together Now after the release of a popular single by that name). The group attracted the attention of some notable figures in the industry, including Biz Markie, but did not manage to secure a record deal.

    Neckless was one of my favorite hiphop songs of 2014. 4th production on that was fire. ABT is nice if you are a Wutang fan, but nothing more tbh.

    '36 Seasons' being better than that sorry thing called 'A Better Tomorrow' still doesn't make it a good album. It's one of his worst and he got fucking lazy with his pen game. No shame in getting bodied by G Rap and AZ again and again, but it's gotta make you wonder soon as even Shawn Wigs drops more memorable lines. Lyrically, if he doesn't start channeling the spirit of his first two albums right fucking now, I'm ready to give up on him. Seems like Meth the only one on fire again, he's clearly the Clan's MVP right now. You want it gritty and gutter and all that, you go for KA or Rast RFC. That's NY right there.

    Ghostface Killah's album so much better than this. Fans should redirect themselves there for 2014 hip hop. Wu shouldn't have let him go from their clan.
