Formed in 1992 in Staten Island, New York, the American collective Wu-Tang Clan is among the greatest names in the history of hip-hop. They are responsible for some of the most important hip-hop tracks, they popularized street rap, disassembled the entire genre concept and transformed it at the business level. Ever since their gathering and the first album, they have been working on individual projects in order to reach stardom.
The complete line-up, made up of the leader and visionary RZA and the rest of the Wu-Tang warriors: GZA, Method Man, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, Inspectah Deck, U-God, Masta Killa and Cappadonna is legendary exactly because of the power, individuality and character of each of the members whose dedication to the Clan is so powerful that they treat each other as family. Their talent has been recognized and marked with various awards, from the Grammy (Method Man) to the title of the most influential hip-hop group in the last ten years (NME). They influenced greatest artists of new generation, such as A$AP Rocky and Kendrick Lamar, and their collabs include names such as Redman, Mobb Depp, Busta Rhymes, Erick Sermon, Nas, Pete Rock and many others.
