Product Description


This debut revolutionized hip-hop (and launched half a dozen solo careers), as much for The RZA's raw barrage of off-kilter, off-key loops and sound effects as for its elliptically violent lyrics. Martial arts--at least as they appear in kung fu movies--are the Wu-Tang Clan's favorite metaphor, but they're also the organizing principle of the group, a crowd of eight rappers, each with his own way-out-there "fighting style." They created their own little self-contained culture, with its own symbols and shifting identities, and let listeners figure it out for themselves. Unless you're willing to immerse yourself in its world, it can be baffling and a little dry, but its aggression and originality are undeniable. --Douglas Wolk

Wu Tang Clan is my favorite rap group,
A combination of Rap and Old School Chinese Martial Art Movie.
They always [ok, actually is their early days] keep dirty, grimy, raw and dark!
That's all of their charisma!
Group with ith 9 unique rappers,
and many of them is well-known Best rappers in rap game!
Enter The Wu-Tang 36 Chambers is the album that start the Wu Tang Dynasty.
First of all, here's my few advice for someone still haven't get this album.
1: This is one of the TRUE best rap album of all time, no doubt baby!
2: I won't hesitate to tell you that you can't go wrong to purchase this album!
3: That's a Hip Hoppa Must Have, still haven't got this? what the fxxk about you man?
ok, back to the album,
Rza produce all beats in here,
many of them is dark and grimy, they all really kick ass!
Bring Da Ruckus - Very Nice Chinese Martial Art Movie sample, with a mid-tempo beats, a typical Wu Tang song! 4.5/5
Shame on a Ni__a - Quite Fast Tempo Beat, Nice Piano/Horn Sample, and here's the first time to introduce Ol' Dirty Bastard, I know all of ya must heard about him before, he's always drunken, raw and insane! I love this song, nuff said! 4.5/5
Clan In Da Front - This one is more fast laced song! Very nice Piano sample once again, actually I always think this one and "Shame on a N." is a couple! anyway, this one is one of my love in here! 4.5/5
Wu Tang: 7th Chamber - Nice dark beat, with a mystical feeling,
very nice (...), no one can do this besides Rza. 4.5/5
Can It Be All So Sample - Raekwon and Ghostface Spit fire in here, Both rapper is mad nice, and the beat sounds unique and great too! One of the Best in this album!

1993 was another tremendous year in hip hop. Snoop Dogg, A Tribe Called Quest, Black Moon, and others dropped gems in 93. But the hip hop world sat up and took notice when the Wu-Tang Clan dropped their first album "Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). No other group made such an impact as this group did, ok maybe in line with N.W.A.m, Run-DMC, Public Enemy, just to name a few. But this nine man group had an effective sound NEVER heard in hip hop before, and that's what made them so tight. And what resulted was one of the greatest albums ever. Here's the review:
Bring Da Ruckus (RZA, GZA, Inspektah Deck, Ghostface Killah, and Raekwon, what better way to begin an album by challenging ANYONE to bring the ruckus)
Shame On A Nigga (ODB, Method Man, Raekwon, tight stuff here)
Clan In Da Front (GZA, the genius of the Clan gets to show why he's one of the best members in the group, lyrically)
Wu-Tang:7th Chamber (the entire clan, except U-God, everyone shines on this track)
Can It Be All So Simple (Raekwon and Ghostface, an introduction to the supreme duo of Rae and Ghost)
Da Mystery Of Chessboxin (Inspektah Deck, U-God, Ghostface, Method Man, ODB, Raekwon, and Masta Killa, just awesome and mind blowing at the same time)
Wu-Tang Clan Ain't Nuthing To F' Wit (RZA, Method Man, and Inspektah Deck, classic Wu-Tang here)

Where there is monotony and 2-D artists there will be the 4-D ingeniuty that break way from false contract images and dead end lyrics. This is the highest most praised and the utmost ultimate example of this. At the time of the early 90's rap had got too happy. With gold chains and laceless adidas sneakers putting smmiles on the world's faces, the rap artists had forgotten their roots where there was discrimination, random assaults and always the s£%! end of the stick in life. Where rap was the only exhalation in the suffocating enviroment of urban life. It seemed that the west coast picked up on this before the east, Ice Cube, Dre,2pac, Snoop, warren g and death row were dominating the rap scene with all the ferocity,originality and gangsta assertiveness that the rap audience hungered for. The east coast were dying although the quiet few were steadily rising e.g. nas, black moon they did nt reach the worldwide platinum sales the west coast had achieved, yet.....
'93: Rza, Gza, ODB, Meth, Rebel INS, U-God, Raekwon the Chef, Masta Killa and Ghostface Killah spelled earth shattering rap for the nation. THE group that would balance the scale of the West-East rap game. THE music that would bring forth legions of cult rap fans spewing forth highly intelligent hords of lyrics to backslap the commercial scene to h--l.
How did they do it. I would have to say they are truly genius artists. To further define this there system of kung-fu cuts, grimy stringz and piano keys and pulsating basslines would lay the foundations of how the new rap music was to be created. Unformulaic and different, when I first listened to it I was like "What the F%$£ is this?" After the 2nd listen the music consumed me, I fell into the wing chun nun chuck swingning beats and indulged in something highly original.
