9780692206713: Enter The Wu-Tang: How Nine Men Changed Hip-Hop Forever
Reseña del editor:

Wu-Tang Clan’s debut album, “Enter The Wu Tang (36 Chambers)” sold a million copies in less than two years, in America alone, without making a single concession to pop radio. That album spawned a mini-empire, including a clothing line that grossed $10 million in its first year, a video game, a comic book, and multiple solo albums, TV appearances and film roles for the group’s members. Wu-Tang Clan group albums and solo albums combined have sold more than 18 million units in America alone and many more around the world. From the three years Rza spent living in North Carolina as a child to the five years Method Man spent working at the Statue of Liberty as a teenager, the Clan built upon their formative experiences with a diverse range of people to construct an album with nationwide appeal. However, the influence of Islam, martial arts film, and music from around the world is the foundation of the Clan’s global appeal. Wu-Tang Clan is seen in the popular imagination as an unruly collective: creative, yet barely under control, and led by one man: The Rza. The truth behind the Clan is more complicated. In this heavily researched work, author (and hip-hop journalist) Alan Page explores the early history of the group, examines the depth of thought involved in creating their iconic debut album, and explores why their music has resonated with millions of fans around the globe.

Biografía del autor:

Alan C. Page is a husband, father and attorney who believes in the power that each individual possesses to positively impact the global community. As an attorney, Mr. Page is licensed to practice law in New York and the District of Columbia. Mr. Page primarily practices entertainment law. Since 1995, Mr. Page has worked as a freelance journalist for a number of nationally (and internationally) distributed publications, including Rap Sheet, Urb, 4080, Elemental, Rime, Beatdown, Artistic Pedigree, and the Hilltop. For one year, Mr. Page served as Managing Editor for the Howard Law Journal, the premiere publication at the Howard University School of Law (Mr. Page’s alma mater). Mr. Page also has been very active in the local arts community in his home city of Washington DC, promoting two weekly music showcase events (the first of which, The Lifeline, lasted most of 1997 and the second of which, Elements, lasted most of 1998). In addition to being an organizer in the local arts scene, Mr. Page has also provided legal advice and guidance to many of the local musicians and filmmakers with whom he has interacted during his time in the city. In addition to his law degree, Mr. Page also holds a BA in English that he received from Howard University. At Howard, Mr. Page co-founded the Howard University Hip-Hop Union and worked to organize the hip-hop artists and entrepreneurs on campus. Mr. Page was also briefly a part of the Young African Writers Association, a group dedicated to elevating the art of writing amongst young African-Americans. As a fiction writer, Mr. Page has completed two novels (with one unfinished novel to come), three screenplays (with a fourth in-progress script on the life of Ida B. Wells), and a voluminous amount of poetry. Mr. Page also directed a short film during his time at college. As a recording artist, Mr. Page has sold numerous copies of his independently produced EP, “Freedom Writer”. He was formerly a member of the DC hip-hop collective known as The Amphibians and has performed extensively at various events in venues such as State of the Union, Bar Nun, Mango’s, Kaffa House, Metro Café, The Capitol Children’s Museum (Groove Gumbo), and Erico’s. Mr. Page also performed at the Smithsonian Folk Life Festival as a member of hip-hop collective The Amphibians.
