EDITORS’ NOTES

Back in the mid- to late '90s, Shaolin's mighty Wu-Tang Clan could do no wrong. They were nine dudes deep, responsible for many of the era's defining jams. Everybody got their own solo albums (many of them classics in their own right), and they extended the W stamp of approval to countless other affiliate artists. On Wu-Tang Killa Bees: The Swarm, official members Ghostface, RZA, Raekwon, Method Man, Masta Killa, and Inspectah Deck share studio time with protégés like Sunz of Man, Cappadonna (who'd later become the 10th Clansman), Killarmy, Hell Razah, Shyheim, Timbo King, Killa Priest, and many more. Somewhat slept-on upon its 1998 release, this is one of (if not the) best Wu-related compilations to hit the scene. "Bronx War Stories," "And Justice for All," "97 Mentality," and "On the Strength" are especially dope.
