This was one of the letters where there was never any doubt. I put it up for vote just because I wanted to maintain fairness throughout this entire Hip Hop ABCs process. Voting really wasn’t necessary because everyone knows…

The Wu-Tang Clan Aint Nothing ta Fuck Wit

It doesn’t matter when you got introduced to hip hop. Unless this article is the first time you’ve heard of this genre, you have no excuse not to know who the Wu-Tang Clan is and what they mean to hip hop culture.

Their debut album, Enter the Wu-Tang is an absolute must have for any Hip Hop fan. With Wu-Wear, the group was one of the first in hip hop to move into the world of fashion.

Another testament to the international force that is the Wu-Tang is the fact that they are one of the rare hip hop groups that spawned multiple productive solo careers. Method Man, Raekwon, Ghostface, RZA, and the late Ol Dirty Bastard all have done very well out on their own.

Masta Killa is still touring solo including a stop at Fubar in St. Petersburg.

Without a doubt, the Wu-Tang Clan is the winner of the Hip Hop ABCs Letter W. More than 20 years later, they are still out there getting that C.R.E.A.M.
