Wu-Tang Clan's history dates back to the late 1980s, when cousins Robert Diggs (RZA), Gary Grice (GZA), and Russell Jones (Ol' Dirty Bastard) formed a group called Force of the Imperial Master, later known as All in Together Now Crew. [^1^] They were joined by other rappers from Staten Island and Brooklyn, such as Method Man, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, Inspectah Deck, U-God, and Masta Killa. [^1^] RZA had a vision of creating a hip-hop collective that would operate like a Shaolin martial arts clan, with each member having a unique style and persona. [^2^]
In 1992, Wu-Tang Clan signed a deal with Loud Records that gave them unprecedented creative control and allowed them to release solo albums on other labels. [^1^] This strategy proved to be very successful, as Wu-Tang Clan members released critically acclaimed and commercially successful solo albums throughout the 1990s, such as GZA's Liquid Swords (1995), Raekwon's Only Built 4 Cuban Linx... (1995), Ghostface Killah's Ironman (1996), and Method Man's Tical (1994). [^2^] Wu-Tang Clan also expanded their influence by introducing and supporting a number of affiliated artists and groups, collectively known as the Wu-Tang Killa Bees. [^1^]
Wu-Tang Clan faced some challenges and tragedies in the late 1990s and early 2000s, such as internal conflicts, legal issues, label disputes, and the death of Ol' Dirty Bastard in 2004. [^1^] However, they continued to release albums as a group and as solo artists, and remained relevant and respected in the hip-hop scene. They also ventured into other fields, such as movies, video games, clothing, books, comics, and documentaries. [^2^] In 2015, they made headlines when they sold the only copy of their seventh album Once Upon a Time in Shaolin for $2 million to Martin Shkreli. [^3^]
Wu-Tang Clan is widely regarded as one of the greatest and most influential hip-hop groups of all time. They have sold over 40 million albums worldwide and have won numerous awards and accolades. [^1^] They have inspired countless artists across genres and generations with their innovative production, lyrical skills, cultural references, and distinctive identity. They have also created a loyal fan base that follows their philosophy of knowledge of self, loyalty to the clan, and respect for the culture. As RZA once said: \\\"Wu-Tang is forever.\\\" ec8f644aee
