Renegades from the Wu Tang temple in Northern China. They perfected the Wu Tang sword style and then left the temple to run thier own clan. History sometimes says that they are murderous people but there are two sides to every story and sometimes history doesn't capture both sides.
The Wu Tang Clan were what is described above, not to be confused with a rap music group that adopted thier name. In America you can pay enough money and just about copyright any word or phrase in my opinion.

The Wu Tang Clan. A legendary Rap Group consisting of nine members:RZA,GZA,ODB(R.I.P.),Masta Killa,Ghostface Killah,UGOD,Method Man,Raekwon,Inspectah Deck.
Hailing From New York, they brought a raw element into Hip Hop. There tracks contained no polished radio hooks, or commercial gain support. Instead providing Violent, Raw Punch lines through most of the tracks, layed over Adrenaline Rushing Beats. They made global success during the 90's hip hop's golden era, and still remain one of the top live performing groups in Hip Hop Today.

They are set to release their fifth album:8 Diagrams in Summer 2007. They are once again ready to beat on the "Rap" videos of modern today, that sounds more like pop and like commecial shit. They have a history of bashing posers such as puff daddy. Wu Tang is for the children. Wu Tang is the best. Wu Tang Clan Aint nothng to fuck with, is their track in which they display the raw talent that only they can provide. Wu Tang IS FOREVER. Bitches.
In a released statement, group leader RZA commented on the need for the Clan's return:

“ This is the perfect time for us to come back, the stars are aligned. It’s like when we first started with Steve. We put out real hip hop at a time when it was turning into pop or R&B. We brought the focus back to the music in its rawest form, without studio polish or radio hooks... People want something that gives them an adrenaline rush. We’re here to supply that fix. How could hip hop be dead if Wu-Tang is forever? We’re here to revive the spirit and the economics and bring in a wave of energy that has lately dissipated." ”
