Default The Greatest Hip Hop Artist/Group Ever(according to Musicbanter)

The Wu-Tang Clan

Quote:
The Wu-Tang Clan is a highly influential hip hop group from New York City that consists of RZA, GZA, Method Man, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, Inspectah Deck, U-God, Masta Killa, and the late Ol' Dirty Bastard. 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 some of their members are from Brooklyn and one is from The Bronx.

They have introduced and launched the careers of affiliated artists and groups, often collectively known as the Wu-Tang Killa Bees. In 2007, MTV ranked Wu-Tang the fifth greatest hip hop group of all time and in 2008, About.com ranked them the number one greatest hip hop group of all time, and stated "No weapon in hip-hop history can rival the chaotic cohesion of the Wu-Tang Clan. The Clan had so many characters, each with his own eccentricities. They were fearless in their approach. There's a good reason no group has been able to successfully recreate their sound. The crew spawned countless loosely associated acts. Their classic albums spawned classic albums."
Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) (1993)




Wu-Tang Forever (1997)


The W (2000)



Iron Flag (2001)

8 Diagrams (2007)



sorry for the lateness of this post. Feel free to discuss whatever you like about them.

I decided to post videos of their hits from each album

I know they had loads of mixtapes but I went with just the five official releases.

quoted info comes from their wikipedia page

I have nothing but good things to say about the Wu. I used to rip on hip hop when I was a little punker kid until I heard C.R.E.A.M. and decided I was in desperate need of a serious attitude change. They're my absolute favourite group. I think I enjoy hip hop more than any other genre these days, and it all started with the Wu Tang. I listen to them every single day, getting ready in the morning, at the gym, during lunch, at home doing dishes. I loves them

... was there really no Wu-Tang thread before now? That's a tad shocking.

no, that's not the point of this thread though, Conan


I created this because of the recent polls we had and mostly as a closer to it is all.

Haha, MC Paul Barman is hilarious. Some of his skits in disposable arts still crack me up.
