Stream of the Week: The Wu-Tang Clan -- Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)
Released in 1993, it is easy to forget the immediate impact Wu-Tang Clan's debut had on the music industry and hip-hop culture. Heavily steeped in samples from martial-arts movies and soul albums, the crew's trademark esthetic was established early on by RZA, the group's idea man. Pulled in numerous directions by the group's uneasy dynamics, Wu-Tang were a force to be reckoned with and would go on to shape the trajectory of the hip-hop scene. The group has put aside its differences and spent some time in the studio before hitting the road for an extensive tour that will see them perform at the Burt on Friday, June 27. Tickets range from $70 to $125 (plus fees) and are available at ticketmaster.ca.
