Album Notes and Credits
WU-CHRONICLES includes rare and previously unreleased tracks.
Personnel: The Genius, Method Man, Wu-Syndicate (vocals).
No group in the history of hip-hop has generated more side projects, collaborations and solo albums than Wu Tang Clan. Priority Records has assembled some of the hottest Wu bangers for WU CHRONICLES. This project features various members of the Clan alongside some of hip-hop's best MC's. Among the selections included are "Gunz 'N Onez (Iz U Wit Me)," which features Heltah Skeltah and Method Man, "4th Chamber," with Genius, Ghostface Killah, RZA and Killa Priest, and "Hip Hop Drunkies," which finds Ol' Dirty Bastard and Tha Alkaholiks kickin' it in grand style.
Notorious B.I.G. and Method Man turn up on the underground hit "The What." "Wu-Gambinos" is one of the best posse cuts ever recorded, incorporating the rhymes of Raekwon, Ghostface, Method Man, RZA and Masta Killa. Additionally, look out for Inspectah Deck, U-God and Streetlife, who deliver the goods on "Semi-Automatic: Full Rap Metal Jacket." WU CHRONICLES is packed with enough jams to rock your trunk for days on end. Wu Tang forever.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (7/8-22, p.146) - 4 Stars (out of 5) - "...it adds up to a superlative set of RZA madness, full of the bubbling, hallucinogenic keyboard effects and clipped piano arpeggios that typify his work..."
Vibe (4/99, p.184) - "...CHRONICLES ratifies the seismic impact the Clan have had on '90s hip hop...leaves plenty of room for the Wu to represent..."
The Source (4/99, p.212) - "...a new collection of Clan cameos, RZA-sisted beats and Tangy ciphers....What CHRONICLES amounts to is a Wu-Tang Greatest Hits..."
