When Wu-Tang Clan released its debut album, Enter the Wu Tang (36 Chambers), in November 1993, the group became an instant sensation.

“For ‘Billboard,’ the Wu-Tang in 1993 was like what Beatlesmania must have been like,” says World Cafe correspondent John Morrison. “Kids used to come to my school, and they would draw, like, the Wu-Tang logo on their clothes. And like, make fangs out of tin foil, cause RZA had fangs in one of their videos.”

In this installment of the Culture Corner, Morrison digs into some of the songs on that momentous debut and explains why that album blew peoples’ minds. We’ll also look at the lasting impact Enter the Wu-Tang has had on hip-hop as it turns 30 years old.
