    Liquid Swords from GZA Released 25 Years Ago

    The Wu-Tang Clan is arguably the greatest collection of rappers in one group to ever assemble. RZA is the leader and the man behind the iconic Wu-Tang Clan sound. Raekwon put out one of the greatest hip hop albums with his Only Built 4 Cuban Linx joint. Method Man started their solo run by dropping his Tical album a year after the 36 Chambers joint. Ghostface has been called the most consistent one of the group as he’s released some great projects. The entire world still misses the late, great Ol’ Dirty Bastard as he was arguably the most popular member. The GZA is probably the most quiet of the…

    Only Built 4 Cuban Linx Released 25 Years Ago by Raekwon

      The Wu Tang Clan became instant hip hop stars when they released the 36 Chambers album. Afterwards, just about every member released a solo project. Method Man, Ghostface, GZA and ODB went on to drop solo joints after the 36 Chambers album. 25 years ago today, Raekwon dropped one of the greatest hip hop albums ever. Only Built 4 Cuban Linx or the Purple Tape changed the game when it dropped. They called it the Purple Tape because the cassette tape was purple, which was different from the others. Only Built 4 Cuban Linx went on to go platinum. Raekwon dropped four singles off the album with the first…

    Tical from Method Man Released 25 Years Ago Today

    When the Wu-Tang Clan dropped their first album, a lot of people gravitated to Method Man. Method Man was my favorite from the Wu-Tang Clan and I couldn’t wait for some solo material. 25 years ago today, Method Man dropped his solo debut, Tical. Before the album was released, Method dropped his first single Bring the Pain. Bring the Pain was a straight classic and that Wu Tang music we all loved. Bring the Pain helped Tical to go platinum and making Method Man an instant star. Method Man released another single, Release Yo’ Delf and it didn’t quite hit like the first single. Method Man didn’t reappear until the…

    Ghostface Featuring Mary J. Blige for Throwback Thursday

    Many people will say that the Purple Tape or Liquid Swords is the best solo project from the Wu-Tang Clan. On the other hand, there are many that think the Ironman album from Ghostface is that project. For me, I’ll say that Ghostface have the best discography by any member of the Wu-Tang Clan. The solo, debut album from Ghostface was on my playlist this week. Actually, this week the Wu-Tang Clan have been a great topic at the barbershop. Many people didn’t know too much about them until the series on Hulu. I’ve been a fan since high school and sported a lot of the Wu Wear. As far…

    Enter the Chamber from Wu Tang Clan Turns 25

    25 years ago one of the illest hip hop albums blessed the streets. Wu Tang Clan released their debut album, Enter the Chamber (36 Chambers). During that era, hip hop was changing from the party scenery to the grimier and street genre. Before this, the west coast started to get a grip on hip hop with Death Row and the Chronic album. The success of this album ushered in the likes of Nas, Notorious Big and many more. They shocked everyone with their sound when they released Protect Ya Neck in late-1992. For me, hearing their sound mixed with martial arts was definitely eye opening. Enter the Chamber is one…
