to clarify, I in no way think that Wu Tang is actually the most overrated group, and this thread is a troll-attempt turned Wu-thread.

I don't know that I would compare the Wu to the Beatles really, but yes there is no arguing with their 90's output and they will always get respect as hip-hop legends for it. But it in no way excuses them from criticism for releasing sub-par music for decades (pretty much every single member is guilty of this). It's this track record and their incredibly childish inability to work together anymore that I base my opinion that this album is not going to be the "second 36 chambers" that such an insane release style almost demands it should be.

Yeah I'm not comparing the Beatles to Wu in sense of music and impact and creativity, simply trying to convey that staying power is great if you have it but not necessary to be a great group/artist.

Yah, the Wu came out with 6-7 classic albums right out the hop. If you look at it, they could be compared to the a beatles quite easily in many aspects. Mainly, fashion.

I like the Wudos mixtape and the wugazi mixtape. Genius stuff. And the Budos band is ridiculous by the way.

They're in the post-Lennon's Death phase.

So not good.

They in their money grubbin, lets just gets some cash-o-lah stage.
So, yah, like Sunny says. Not good.




I will be interested to hear the albums. I bet they will have a few heaters but overall, I am guessing, not so good. I mean even hearing them MC now a days, they sound like old menu the gusto of fire they had is now more like guts of tires.

so it's safe to assume that Paul's been dead for like 15 years at this point, and now they're subtly hinting at it with each new album cover that isn't being fiddled with by Yoko? in fact, now that you mention it.....
