The Story Of Wu-Tang Clan

In the summer of 1993, the Wu-Tang Clan emerged from the slums of Staten Island and took the hip-hop world by storm. Their legacy spanned over a decade, garnering fans worldwide and generating sales in excess of $50 million.

Back in the day, Method Man used to be a cleaner at the Statue of Liberty. The symbolism feels apt because the story of the Staten Island hip-hop collective is the American dream as it should be written.

Wu-Tang Clan is an American hip hop group and collective formed in the New York City borough of Staten Island in 1992, originally composed of rapper-producer RZA and rappers GZA, Ol' Dirty Bastard, Method Man, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, Inspectah Deck, U-God, and Masta Killa.

If someone had told rapper Raekwon the Chef back in the ’90s that his group Wu-Tang Clan would one day have a Staten Island street named after it, or be the subject of an Emmy-nominated documentary, or the focus of a 10-part dramatic series, “I would have looked at them like they were crazy."
