One of the most legendary hip-hop groups of our time, The Wu-Tang Clan is a New York City-based hip-hop group, which consists of: RZA, GZA, Method Man, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, Inspectah Deck, U-God, Masta Killa, and the late Ol' Dirty Bastard.
Emerging in 1993, when Dr. Dre’s G-funk had overtaken the hip-hop world, the Staten Island, NY-based Wu-Tang Clan proved to be the most revolutionary rap group of the mid-’90s – and only partially because of their music. Turning the standard concept of a hip-hop crew inside out, the Wu-Tang Clan were assembled as a loose congregation of nine MCs, almost as a support group. Instead of releasing one album after another, the Clan was designed to overtake the record industry in as profitable a fashion as possible – the idea was to establish the Wu-Tang as a force with their debut album and then spin off into as many side projects as possible. In the process, the members would all become individual stars as well as receive individual royalty checks. Wu-Tang Clan continue to tour as a group, most recently in 2008 and 2010.
In 2008, About.com ranked them the number one greatest hip-hop group of all time, stating "No weapon in hip-hop history can rival the chaotic cohesion of the Wu-Tang Clan.
In December 2014, Wu-Tang Clan celebrated their 20th Anniversary with a new album "A Better Tomorrow" and a new deal with Warner Bros Records. The group are embarking on an extensive European Tour to support the album, performing at some of the world's biggest festivals and continuing the creativity with a host of upcoming projects, solo albums and side projects.
