Emerging in 1993, the Staten Island, New York-based Wu-Tang Clan proved to be the most revolutionary rap group of the mid-'90s — and only partially because of their music. Turning the standard concept of a hip hop crew inside out, Wu-Tang Clan was assembled as a loose congregation of nine MCs designed to overtake the record industry in as profitable a fashion as possible — establishing Wu-Tang as a force with its debut album and then spinning off into as many side projects as possible. Two decades later, Wu-Tang are still together and still breaking new ground.
