About Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) [Clean]

Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) is the debut studio album by American hip-hop group Wu-Tang Clan, released on November 9, 1993, by Loud Records. Recording sessions took place during early-to-mid 1993 at Firehouse Studio in New York City, and the album was produced by the group's de facto leader RZA. Its title originates from the martial arts film The 36th Chamber of Shaolin (1978). The gritty, distinctive sound of Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) created a blueprint for hardcore hip-hop during the 1990s, and helped return New York City hip-hop to national prominence. Its sound also became greatly influential in modern hip-hop production, while the group members' explicit, humorous, and free-associative lyrics have served as a template for many subsequent hip-hop records. Serving as a landmark release in the era of hip-hop known as the East Coast Renaissance, its influence helped lead the way for several other East Coast hip-hop artists, including Nas, The Notorious B. I. G., Mobb Deep, and Jay-Z.
