Wu-Tang Clan is by far the most innovative group in Hip-Hop history. Each of its nine members is unlike the others, or any other rapper that preceded or followed.

Thankfully, the TSS Crew is at your service and will guide you in the right direction, over the next few months, toward the best and most memorable performances by the Wu-Tang Clan’s nine-headed hydra. The Primer is headed to Shaolin, and we won’t stop until you have mastered each of the 36 Chambers for yourself.
