They have been in the music scene since 1990 and have managed to record five studio albums that have both had massive success.These are the Wu-tang clan,the pioneers of hip hop that have had superfluous mainstream success as far as the hip hop music genre is concerned. The Wu-tang Clan is one of the most acclaimed hip hop group that has not only managed to hit the mainstream media but also enjoys greater respect from the underground hip hop fraternity. Ailing from Staten in the East coast of America,the group comprises of GZA,Masta killa,Ghost face Killa,Capadona,Inspectah deck,U-God,Raekwon,Method man,Rza and the late Ol' Dirty bustard. The Wu-tang clan is a hip hop group that has managed to shake the entire music industry creating a cohesion that no one has managed to rival. Their rise to fame was after the release of their first independent single 'protect ya neck' that managed to earn them a tour with Cypress Hill and the Kat Nu. With Rza as the main producer the group released their first debut album 'enter the 36 Chambers' that has been critically acclaimed as one of the greatest albums of all time. Each member of the group has managed to embark on solo projects receiving similar huge reception coupled with mainstream success. Pertinent to this,Rza has managed to claim a fair share of the film industry after the release of the 'man with an iron fist' that he directed. The movie earned over 3 million on its open day and managed to scoop around 7.9 million before the weekend.The group has also managed to scoop myriads of hip hop awards together with performing at the Hip hop Honors in 2006. The 'Wu-tang forever' album that was released in 1997 hit multi platinum and got nominated for the Grammies together with topping various billboard charts. The group has also worked with top hip hop artists and even artists from other music genres. This includes Az,Cool G Rap,Cormega,M.o.p and Havoc among others. It is beyond reasonable doubt that the Wu-tang clan popularity extends beyond hip hop music. This is one of the hip hop groups that has managed to pull large crowds to its concerts with much ease. Despite the wrangles that have been sprouting up and the death of ol' Dirty bustard (In 13th November 2004),the group has still managed to stay intact up to date.
