WuTang Clan have songs and lyrics that hit hard to this day, progressive, fresh and full of life they lit up the 90s and 2000s with socially conscious gangsta rap (yeah, an oxymoron in some ways).
Of course hip was the voice of a generation and spoke largely to a young repressed and a lost white youth.
Starting in the late 80s another band were pushing boundaries and speaking to the mostly white fans who’d had enough. Fugazi are known as hardcore punk pioneers, the creators (accidently) of the straight edge punk movement.
Now, Punk may not be your thing, or maybe it is, and who knows, WuTang may not be your thing either.
However, progression comes with collaboration and sharing of ideas.
WuTang and Fugazi probably never spoke however someone collaborated them and created something extremely special.
Laying WuTang over the grooves of Fugazi is undeniable smooth and the new sound from old is mesmerizing. I CAN’T stop listening!
Take a long listen to Wugazi’s 13 Chambers and let me know what you think?
