Year Eligible: 2018
Debut Record: Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) (1993)
Why They Should Be Inducted: As a team or on their own, Wu-Tang are unstoppable: When they work together, they write anthems like "C.R.E.A.M." and hits like "Gravel Pit," and when they're apart, they keep the Wu mythology alive in their own unique ways. Plus, they're among rap's great entrepreneurs, applying a Kiss-like stamp of approval to clothing, video games, movies and more. Wu's individual MCs have fared better at establishing solo careers than members of the biggest rock bands.
Possible Drama: Unlikely but plausible, considering the group's occasional penchant for infighting. Also, as with their concerts, there's no saying who would show up.
