The debate about the greatest emcee of all time is a hotly contested one. Yet when it comes to the greatest hip hop group of all time, there is often no debate at all. Groups such as N.W.A., A Tribe Called Quest and Public Enemy can be considered briefly as No. 1 contenders, but once the Wu-Tang Clan enters into the equation, the No. 1 spot is all but assured.
The Wu-Tang Clan is made up of 9 members: The RZA, The GZA, Ol' Dirty Bastard, Inspectah Deck, Raekwon (The Chef), U-God, Ghostface Killah, Masta Killa and the Method Man. Each member of the group has his own unique style and sound, and they all combined perfectly in 1993 to create the hip hop masterpiece that is Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). From there, countless classic solo albums ensued and the rest is history.
I could write all day about the brilliance of the Wu-Tang Clan, so I'll spare you the essay. Just know this: Wu-Tang Clan Ain't Nothin' Ta Fuck Wit!
