This series of Wu-Tang Clan infographics exploring the rise and fall of Wu-Tang aint nuthing to f*** wit. The trilogy begins with “The Rise” in the early ’90s, shifts to “The Fragmentation” and RZA’s “Bobby Digital in Stereo” in 1998, and concludes with “The Decline” and Masta Killa‘s “No Said Date” in June 2004. Along the way, the Infodiscography shows album artwork (when the inserts still mattered) and the highest chart position achieved by each album. You can also see which Wu-Tang members or notable collaborators appear on each page. In a nutshell, it’s pretty tight. Is Wu-Tang really in a decline, though? ODB is gone and sure they’ve aged but their talent is intact. Maybe it’s just the golden years. And of course the graphic doesn’t address the legendary group’s influence, but its impact is immeasurable and implied.
