I wouldn't say overrated. I would say they became more so "commercialized" towards the end of their run.

It happens. whatever

Yes, they are pioneers and they have classics. But they have some of the worst and most inconsistent discography of all time.
All their classics were released in the 90s except for Supreme Clientele.
OB4CL2 is the only good Wu album that dropped during the 2000s
This shit needs to stop
As a group, Wu Tang has 1 classic album (36). As solo artists, they have like 5 classics (OB4CL, Supreme Clientele, Liquid Swords, and some I can't think of right now)

Yes, that's it. Out of all the albums they made, only a few are actually worth a listen. The Wu is nowhere top 5 when it comes to hip hop groups.


Anyone else think this is a little familiar

I've seen them live this summer for their 20th anniversary tour and it was epic...Too bad Raekwon wasn't able to perform. DJ Allah Mathematics rocked a scratch and beat-juggling session as well.

Raekwon, while I like him, is a bit of a douche. He is the only member holding out on his verses for the next album.

I too have to come to the conclusion that Raekwon is a douche. Even though OBFCL is my favorite of all the wu-made albums--I seriously wonder who penned his rhymes. He seems do dumb in interviews. Further, I saw a project he made in 2011 and I think I shit myself as I could not believe a rapper would be wearing a tutu.

while on the topic of gayness, sir gayness Diddy looks hella gay in the pic above. Is he wearing eyeshadow? gtfoh.

Why's everything "gay" with you.

Raekwon, while I like him, is a bit of a douche. He is the only member holding out on his verses for the next album.


Yeah man, I read about that too. Seriously makes me wonder how he feels about Popa Wu saying that stuff.

I will never understand the mc who thinks, if his group sells it because of him, more than the producer. RZA provided the path and for him to not respect that is weak.

It will tour as an art installation. Wow. Fucking genius. But I don't think, me personally, would go and pay 20 bucks to stand around with a bunch of other cunts, with headphones on all listening to the one album for an hour or two.
fuck that!!

lmao if I had any indication that this would be a new classic Wu album maybe...

But with their recent track record (not including Ghost), how can they justify this shit? it'd have to have like 2 vintage ODB verses, some legendary features, etc. You know it's going to be like 2 verses at most per surviving member plus some "wu-affiliates". Cool concept though, I guess if somebody was gonna do it it'd be the Wu

To respond to the OP. 1 classic group album and 5 damn good/also classic solo albums is really good. How many groups have higher quantity AND quality?

forget about responding to the OP on this one haha...
However, when the last of those albums was a decade ago, one has to question the group's continuing abilities.

I don't judge the Beatles for not making music anymore, their spot is solidified. Do you really need staying power? I wasn't old enough to listen to Wu when they came out, but I can imagine people were losing their shit when they came out with a half dozen CLASSIC hip hop albums within a very short period, compared to most groups that wait multiple years to drop new shit and usually get progressively worse. They dominated the hip hop scene.

If everything goes according to plan, there will be no leak. Not until, maybe the album is purchased. But, there is always a leak.




And yah,
I am not too optimistic this will be a banger, classic.
