When the Wu-Tang Clan arrived in 1993, they rewrote the book on how Rap was to be done.  As a collection of MC’s, Wu-Tang became stars immediately and their collection of rappers would become the equivalent of a Rapping All Star Team. 


Seriously, look at some of the names in this group:

RZA
GZA
Ghostface Killah
Method Man
Ol’ Dirty Bastard
Raekwon

It wasn’t long before other Rap ensembles emerged patterning themselves after them and they were without question the most influential hip hop act of the mid-90’s.  With many of them becoming certifiable solo stars, it could be hard to stop the induction of the Wu-Tang Clan as their entry to the Hall would gain entry for all the members without having to induct the solo careers of each member.  As Wu-Tang had street and critical credibility, their induction may be impossible to stop.

The Bullet Points

  • Eligible Since: Sunday, 01 January 2017
  • Country of Origin: U.S.A. (Staten Island, NY)
  • Why they will get in: They have the star power and easily meet the influence factor.
  • Why they won't get in: The argument can be made that their overall catalogue is small and despite the multiple output the group is realistically known for just one album.
  • Essential Albums: Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) (1993)
    Wu-Tang Forever (1997)
    The W (2000)
    A Better Tomorrwow (2014)
  • Our Five Favorite Songs as Chosen by Each Member of the NIHOF Committee: Bring da Ruckus (From Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), 1993)
    Clan in da Front (From Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), 1993)
    Wu-Tang Clan Ain’t Nuthing Ta F’ Wit (From Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), 1993)
    C.R.E.A.M (From Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), 1993)
    Protect Ya Neck (From Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), 1993)
