Of course Wu Tang belong in a hall of fame.

They were completely unique & original and about the only mainstream hip hop band worth listening to in the late 90s early 2000s. The amount of talent to come out of that band is just staggering. I think of them as the first hip hop supergroup doing for hip hop in the 90s what those rock supergroups did for rock music in the late 60s.

A definite yes from me.

Good thing they're not gangsta rap then.

I vote Yes, certainly one of the most important and original rap acts, and a lot of them have admirable solo careers, GZA especially.

And I would say this is a yes for sure. I look at the bands already nominated Beatles, Zeppelin, JD, KC, Elliott Smith we have a wide range of genres but no Hip-Hop and there is little doubt in my mind that Wu-Tang best represents this sites taste in rap.

I disagree with Urban's comparison to late 60's super groups however, (I'll take NWA in that category) they are more like the Eagles of Rap, (hear me out) a lot of individually talented members of a large group from the second generation of an emerging musical genre, many of which would go on to have excellent solo careers.

Either way a for sure Affirmative from me. Even though they are not a top 10 rap favorite of mine. Kudos to Les Paul for a gutsy nomination post and this one is for you MB.

I am unwilling to extract heads out of the asses of those who think that WTC is gangsta rap.

I don't really appreciate the veiled references to shitty 70s rock like the Eagles, but Wu-Tang is definitely one of the biggest pioneers of hip-hop (alongside N.W.A and The Beastie Boys). One of the biggest and best and one of my favorites.

Hell yes.

Somehow someone with zero posts decided to make their way into this thread. And voted no.

Fuck that.

On behalf of all that's left of my dignity I apologize for using an Eagles simile.

For the record I never have considered them gangsta and found that post to be another example fo why I am still in favor of a post count limit despite the fact it is not the popular consensus.

I was referring to The Monkey's post, but it was just a general statement anyways.

Big is the closest thing to gangsta rap I listen to. It just seems that when people hear a beat that wasn't ripped off a top 40 song or doesn't play like a cheesy synth pop song that it's considered gangsta.

Word (I believe that is the correct response based on popular nomenclature)

I was going to vote no, but after reading all of the commentary here I will abstain from this nominee, I can't honestly say I would take the time and do a thorough review of Wu-Tang's music, I simply am not into the rap/hip-hop scene period and so I would not be an honest participant in this selection.

I had an albums of theirs on my computer a while ago, and it sounded every bit as gangsta (in the bad sence) at NWA. Furthermore, their public appearance is also very reminiscent of contemporary acts who classified themselves with that term.

Just to make things clear, "gangsta" is a very loose genre for me, and isn't intrinsically bad. It simply denotes an anti-establishment mindset, though misogyny, homophobia and racism usually come with it, sadly. Wu-Tang Clan's songs tend to contain elements of the latter, which is why I voted no.
