Infinitely quotable and instantly recognizable, the Wu-Tang Clan has been referenced by people from Eminem to Rhett & Link. Considering how 36 Chambers references old kung-fu movies, Dr. Seuss, Family Feud, Lucky Charms, and myriad other pieces pop culture ephemera, it’s almost like the circle of life. This record is simultaneously ugly, low-fi, hardcore, nasty and absolutely, shockingly brilliant. It’s a snapshot of parts of humanity that people don’t like seeing like the morbid humor of their skits (“And stab the shit with a rusty screwdriver! Blow!”) and tales of poverty and desperation (CREAM). It’s not for the easily offended.
