Album Review

The Wu-Tang Clan's debut album Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) wasn't an across-the-boards blockbuster like Dr. Dre's The Chronic, the other seminal hip-hop record of the early '90s, but its impact was just as widespread. Where Dr. Dre was loose, hedonistic, and funky, the Wu-Tang was tense, scary, and funny. Enter the Wu-Tang is a series of intense, surrealistic soundscapes that draw equally from pop culture, martial arts, and gangsta traditions. Other hardcore gangstas simply boasted about their hardness — the Wu-Tang clan boasted, but they supported their inventive rhymes with stripped-down samples and lean, menacing beats that evoked their gritty, urban surroundings more effectively than their words. And that's what makes Enter the Wu-Tang so effective — the group's unique lyrical obsessions and the distinctive, innovative production techniques of Prince Rakeem. After releasing this pioneering debut, all the members pursued solo careers that explored various elements of Enter the Wu-Tang in more depth — and, occasionally, with more effective results — but this contains the roots of everything that followed. [Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) was also released in a "clean" edition, containing no profanities or vulgarities.]

Wu-tang forever!

Starts out good and only gets better! The Shaolin swords part ( for those of you who own it physically ) is good and all but wu-tang swords is where it's at!! I bet my boombox gets tired of playing this but I sure as hell don't!

Wu-tang!! 

Missing 36 chambers

Explicit has 12 tracks, this has 9 tracks, minus the bleaped out words, thats about 8 tracks. Dont buy edited stuff, especially a masterpiece like this that has to be heard word for word. buy the explicit one.


This is amazing. There isn't 1 track on here that isn't great. This was the last of good hip hop. Now it's hip pop, like the Black Eyed Peas, or stuff with no real lyrics, like Soulja Boy Tell 'Em. Come On! Like RZA said in Wu-Tang Forever,"Y'all think you can be an MC overnight"or something like that. Anyway, the best tracks are C.R.E.A.M., Method Man, Can It Be All So Simple, Wu-Tang Clan Ain't Nuthin' Ta F' Wit, Protect Ya Neck, & Shame On a Nuh. The other songs are good too, but those are the best


Formed: 1992 in Staten Island, NY

Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Emerging in 1993, when Dr. Dre's G-funk had overtaken the hip-hop world, the Staten Island, New York-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 were designed to overtake the record industry in as profitable...
