NPR’s Tiny Desk concerts have been a favorite among both fans and artists alike. The latest band to hit the desk are the classic and eternally likable Wu-Tang Clan.
They are celebrating the 25 year anniversary of their smash album Enter The Wu-Tang Clan (36 Chambers). The group from Staten Island, New York has been a staple with Hip-Hop fans and also in pop culture as a whole. Breaking onto the scene in the early 90’s they have endured, thrived, and absolutely changed the course of Hip-Hop history.
On NPR’s Tiny Desk, the group performed hits such as “Triumph,” “Protect Ya Neck,” and “Glaciers of Ice”. The group consisted of original members such as Raekwon, GZA, RZA, Inspectah Deck, Mastah Killa, and U-God. Ol’ Dirt Bastard Jr., the son of Ol’ Dirty Bastard even joined the original members on the set.
Wu-Tang Clan has affected everything from music, fashion, and film and are simply one of the most influential groups in history. While this may be the 25th anniversary of Enter The Wu-Tang Clan (36 Chambers) this surely isn’t the end for them, and fans will support them all the way.
