This is yet another reason why the Wu deserve to be in:
It's been 22 long hard years and still strugglin
Survival got me buggin, but I'm alive on arrival
I peep at the shape of the streets
And stay awake to the ways of the world cause **** is deep
A man with a dream with plans to make C.R.E.A.M.
Which failed; I went to jail at the age of 15
A young buck sellin drugs and such who never had much
Trying to get a clutch at what I could not touch
The court played me short, now I face incarceration
Pacin', going up state's my destination
Handcuffed in back of a bus, 40 of us
Life as a shorty shouldn't be so rough
But as the world turns I learned life is Hell
Living in the world, no different from a cell
Everyday I escape from Jakes givin chase, sellin base
Smokin bones in the staircase
Though I don't know why I chose to smoke sess
I guess that's the time when I'm not depressed
But I'm still depressed, and I ask what's it worth?
Ready to give up so I seek the Old Earth
Who explained working hard may help you maintain
to learn to overcome the heartaches and pain
We got stickup kids, corrupt cops, and crack rocks
and stray shots, all on the block that stays hot
Leave it up to me while I be living proof
To kick the truth to the young black youth
But shorty's running wild, smokin sess, drinkin beer
And ain't trying to hear what I'm kickin in his ear
Neglected for now, but yo, it gots to be accepted
That what? That life is hectic

I agree, especially Public Enemy. Public Enemy was the perfect combination of talent and pioneering.

Though, I do love Run DMC and Grandmaster Flash. I like NWA, though the rhetoric isn't always great. But their talent was undeniable.

As for the earlier comment that Wu-Tang Clan was essentially hip-hop's first "supergroup," I think NWA was hip-hop's first supergroup.

You know if we're to post a verse to persuade it would obviously be Deck's verse in Triumph.

"I bomb atomically, Socrates' philosophies
and hypothesis can't define how I be droppin these
mockeries, lyrically perform armed robbery
Flee with the lottery, possibly they spotted me
Battle-scarred shogun, explosion when my pen hits
tremendous, ultra-violet shine blind forensics
I inspect you, through the future see millenium
Killa B's sold fifty gold sixty platinum
Shacklin the masses with drastic rap tactics
Graphic displays melt the steel like blacksmiths
Black Wu jackets queen B's ease the guns in
Rumble with patrolmen, tear gas laced the function
Heads by the score take flight incite a war
Chicks hit the floor, diehard fans demand more
Behold the bold soldier, control the globe slowly
Proceeds to blow swingin swords like Shinobi
Stomp grounds and pound footprints in solid rock
Wu got it locked, performin live on your hottest block"

I dunno, personally I'd take both C.R.E.a.M. verses over that...

Take a good look at this album. When you're a generic indie kid like i was and then you stumble across this it's like having your head smashed against a wall. All my prejudices were thrown away and that album became one of my favourites instantly. The flow, the lyrics, the characters on show, the production, the sampling... all perfect.

I'm going to be completely blunt and say anyone with even a passing interest in music should listen to the Wu at some point. Essential.

I'm gonna have to be the odd man out here, as I voted no to the Wu. It's easy to put out good albums when you have 10+ separate artists contributing to it. Separately, most of the Clan's artists are good, but they lack unity and cohesion as a group IMHO. I'm in no way belittling them, but I wouldn't give a HOF nod to a group which consists of little more than 5 albums of collaborations by separate artists.

You can't be serious.

Fully. I'm not disregarding their solo talents, but throwing 10 (okay, actually 9) rappers together to form a supergroup will do little for group unity and cohesions, regardless of how much talent each one brings to the table individually.

Dont get me wrong, I love the WTC, but in my mind they don't deserve a HOF nomination.
