Enter the Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers

Enter the Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers is the 1993 (see 1993 in music) debut album by the Wu-Tang Clan, a collective of American hip hop musicians. With sparse, penetrating beats and pseudo-mystical lyrics interspersed with samples from kung fu movies[?], 36 Chambers was an auspicious and critically acclaimed album for the group. Unlike other hip hop crews, the Wu-Tang clan did not immediately follow up on 36 Chambers, allowing for many of the members to release a solo album before reuniting to record a second collective record.
