Everything We Learned About Style From Wu-Tang Clan

Straight from the mothafuckin’ slums of Shaolin, the Wu-Tang Clan struck again and again. Not only was the legendary group of emcees largely responsible for bringing attention back to hip hop in New York amidst a West Coast gangsta rap reign, but the Wu had style like no one else, both on and off the mic.

With a total of nine crew members and a copious amount of affiliates, each distinct style of rhyming was accompanied by an even more unique personal style when it came to threads. Overall, the clan’s style could be described as a culmination of what the five boroughs were wearing in the early ‘90s.

Although the genre of rap currently leads the world of fashion in pop culture, an emcee’s steez was the antithesis of how parents wanted their children to dress back in the day. But look closely enough and you will see that the Wu style influenced many trends that are prevalent across the globe today, especially with the forthcoming Just Blaze x Packer Shoes x Saucony Grid 9000 “Snow Beach.”

From the conglomerate of Wu Wear to Ghostface and Raekwon posing with Elmo and gats, here’s everything we learned about style from Wu-Tang.
