The Wu-Tang Clan is an American hip hop group from New York City, originally composed of East Coast rappers RZA, GZA, Method Man, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, Inspectah Deck, U-God, Masta Killa, and the late Ol' Dirty Bastard. The group was formed in and is associated with the New York City borough of Staten Island (referred to by members as "Shaolin"). They are frequently joined by fellow rapper and childhood friend Cappadonna, a quasi-member of the group.

They have introduced and launched the careers of a number of affiliated artists and groups, often collectively known as the Wu-Tang Killa Bees, and in 2008, ranked them the No. 1 greatest hip hop group of all time" Kris Ex of Rolling Stone called Wu-Tang Clan "the best rap group ever." In 2004, NME hailed them as one of the most influential groups of the last ten years.
