Wu-Tang Clan: History of the Hip Hop Group
Formed in Staten Island, New York in the early 1990s, the Wu-Tang Clan rose to prominence due to their martial arts film-inspired hip hop tracks. Consisting of RZA, GZA, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Method Man, Raekwon the Chef, Ghostface Killah, U-God, Inspectah Deck and Masta Killa, the group earned fans almost from the get-go due to their hardcore lyrics and unique beats. This even led many of the band’s members to successful solo careers outside of the collective. Though Wu-Tang’s popularity did eventually wane, their influence on hip hop history cannot be denied.
