I was dangerously obsessed with Wu-Tang Clan.
Now that i think about it, they were pretty avant-garde way back then... at a time when every other rapper was just another gangsta or intent on 'keeping it real', they came out with the whole martial arts mythology.. very different style of production and references in the lyrics...
i like how on 'only built 4 cuban linx' Raekwon took them above 'gangsta' and turned 'gangster' instead
They were in London last week and I'm gutted to have missed the show, though their Brixton Academy gig in '97 was the worst I've ever seen..
So I'll pour my liquor out for these forgotten gems...
