Description

The Wu-Tang Clan is American hip-hop royalty. Rolling Stone called them the 'best rap group ever' and their debut album is considered one of the greatest of all time. Since 1992, they have released seven gold and platinum studio albums with sales of more than 40 million copies. So how did nine kids from the Brownsville projects go from nothing to global icons? Remarkably, no one has told their story-until now. Raw is the incredible first-person account of one boy's journey from the Staten Island projects to international stardom. Part social history, part confessional memoir, U-God's intimate portrait of his life - and those of his Wu-Tang brothers - is a brave and unfiltered account of escaping poverty to transform the New York hip-hop scene forever.

Foreword

The explosive story behind the historic rise of the Wu-Tang Clan, as told by one of the founding members, Lamont 'U-God' Hawkins.

Report

Unexpectedly moving ... An unusual degree of self-awareness about this fact. He describes how difficult it can be to maintain his craft and his confidence, a rare sort of candor in an art form typically premised on effortless cool. But the memoir's most endearing moments involve the small victories that come with surviving ... "Raw" feels cathartic, as Hawkins finds the language and perspective to reckon with his past. New Yorker
