Our "Classic Rotation" series revisits classic albums on the anniversary of their release. Today, we take a look at Wu-Tang Clan's classic album, "Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)", which dropped twenty-one years ago on November 9, 1993.
Many rappers came to prominence first as part of a group ( i.e. EPMD, Public Enemy, N.W.A., Wu-Tang Clan, and the list goes on). As time progressed, the concept (or rather unity) of the group would take a backseat to the individual. Whether it be the fans picking out whichever member they prefer, or whether there is that one particular member standing out amongst the rest (i.e. Andre 3000), the seeds were planted for one individual to embark on their own into the hip-hop wilderness. In light of this, has the nail been placed in the coffin, or is there still a bit of life left in the group concept?
