(AUS) Legendary rap group Wu-Tang Clan have signed to Warner Bros. Records and are set to release their highly-anticipated 20th anniversary album, A Better Tomorrow on November 28.
Wu-Tang Clan includes RZA, GZA, Method Man, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, Inspectah Deck, U-God, Masta Killa, and Cappadonna and has sold over 6.5 million records in the US, while they’ve sold nearly 40 million records worldwide, including individual members’ album sales as well as group sales collectively.
Over the course of their career, the group has released five studio albums and 19 compilation albums. Each of their first three albums – Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), Wu-Tang Forever and The W – have been certified platinum by the RIAA, with Wu-Tang Forever having debuted at the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200.
Emerging in 1993, the Staten Island, NY-based Wu-Tang Clan proved to be the most revolutionary rap group of the mid-’90s. Turning the standard concept of a hip-hop crew inside out, the Wu-Tang Clan were assembled as a loose congregation of nine MCs. Instead of releasing one album after another, the idea was to establish the Wu-Tang as a force with their debut album and then spin off into as many side projects as possible. In the process, the members all became individual stars.
