For some reason I have found myself listening to the work of the members of The Wu-Tang clan a lot recently. Mind you, I have not been listening to any collaborative Wu-Tang albums, but instead the solo works of the various members, which is quite an overwhelming endeavor. I really like Wu-Tang, but it is difficult to sift through some of the muck and mire that has been by the various members over the years. For instance, say I wanted to get a greater base of knowledge on Inspectah Deck’s body of work. I have to then decide which of his FIVE studio releases I am going to try to dig into. I can look at other people’s ratings of his albums all I want, but rap is just such a crap shoot anyway, there is no way I am going to be successful finding what I’m looking for.
Since I am just starting to make progress of Wu-Tang solo albums, most of what follows is more of a list of some of my all-time favorite Wu-Tang member’s offerings, and not so much any hidden gems that I have found. Maybe once I am all the way through the solo catalogues I will be able to offer a LxListening Wu-Tang sequel. Enjoy.
