WU-TANG CLAN'S FIRST SINGLE RE-ISSUED FOR RECORD STORE DAY 2015. NEW SEALED YELLOW/ BLACK VINYL. LTD EDITION OF 3000. GET5801312
Wu-Tang Clan’s first ever 12” presented for Record Store Day 2015
in a split yellow & black colored vinyl pressing. In 1993, an unsuspecting – and some might say dozing – hip-hop world was bumrushed by a force that would dominate
its consciousness for the rest of the decade: the nine-member Wu-Tang Clan. This is the song that started it all.
Originally self-released on cassette and vinyl (with producer and group patriarch The RZA’s Staten Island home address
on the label), the song blew up in a way that has rarely been equaled in the hip-hop world. The grass roots groundswell
it created is part of what built the Wu-Tang legend and kept it strong.
The song, beat-wise, is a driving, dusty musical assault. That description holds true lyrically as well, thanks to eight out
of nine group members attacking the mic (Masta Killa was absent), one by one – each showing their unique flow and
methodic madness, from GZA’s even keel to Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s manic train of thought. Within months of first exploding
on college radio, the song was dominating mainstream hip-hop shows around the world. Eventually picked up by Loud
Records, it remains one of the most explosive hip-hop posse cuts of all time, full of intelligence, righteous indignation
(at record labels who had dropped and dissed various members of the crew) and raw power.
This limited edition (3,000) Record Store Day 12-Inch is pressed on split yellow and black vinyl for the first time ever,
with a reproduction of the original cover art and a plastic Get On Down-branded outer sleeve.
