From Only Built 4 Cuban Linx to Fishscale to RZA’s soundtrack work and Method Man’s solid dramatic turn on The Wire, the members of the Wu-Tang Clan have continually proven that they can stand strong on their own. Yet for all the memorable solo verses they’ve spat and long-delayed albums on which they’ve toiled (and despite the 2004 death of Ol’ Dirty Bastard), the Shaolin MCs refuse to give up on the collaborative spirit and bond that made them one of hip-hop’s most revered crews. The Wu hasn’t released a studio album since 2007’s8 Diagrams, though a new disc is currently being prepped for spring 2012. Until then, fans will have to make due with RZA, Raekwon, Method Man, GZA, Ghostface Killah, Masta Killa, U-God, and Inspectah Deck once again throwing open the doors to the 36 Chambers. “Protect Ya Neck,” kid.
