This will serve as the first release from GZA’s long anticipated Dark Matter album, which is finally set to drop later this year. UPDATED: GZA says this was just a one off for the fans and will not appear on Dark Matter.

To “A Better Tomorrow” and in Celebration of 21 Years: The 21 Greatest Wu-Tang Clan Albums

Wu-Tang Clan

Words by Paul Meara (@PaulMeara)

No group in the history of hip-hop music has released more classic albums than Wu-Tang Clan. And while it may be unfair to compare them to any other collective of emcees (they had 9+) there is no doubt their influence on hip-hop music was mad heavy. Their classic LPs spawned classic LPs.

After over two decades of releasing material and teaching the children that they ain’t nothing to fuck with, Wu-Tang and its aura is unquestionably unique. But that wouldn’t come without risk. During the time of the group’s inception RZA took a lot of chances and even some close to the camp would often question just what he was trying to do. The complex waters of each of RZA’s 36 Chambers were hard to grasp until you heard the music. The embattled chess match that each album presented (especially early) only added to the group’s intrigue and ability to stand out. From “Protect Ya Neck” to the Clan’s newest singles, Wu-Tang’s brand has grown thoughout the 90s, spilling into the 2000s and even lasting to the present day.

In honor of the 21 years since Wu-Tang Clan donned their debut album (and the release of their seventh group studio album, A Better Tomorrow) Nah Right has compiled as many albums, ranking them from 1-21. Only albums created by members of Wu or affiliates were included (sorry Wu Block and Blackout). Enjoy and always remember to “Protect Ya Gawdamn Neck!” as GZA would say. Continue reading this post…
