Wu Tang Clan is where it’s at. The NYC rap group broke out onto the scene with Enter the Wu-Tang in 1993. Armed with RZA’s production, JZA’s vision and the raw, unhinged talents of Method Man, Redman, Raekwon and Ol’ Dirty Bastard himself, among others, they were the first to really cross that threshold between hip hop… and fanboyism? This album heavily alludes to old kung fu movies, japanimation, tv shows and the popular culture that these guys had seen growing up.  And much like that slice of culture, 36 Chambers is a bit kitschy, chaotic, gory and a whole lot of fun. Here’s Da Mystery of Chessboxin’; enjoy!
