I joined about 2 months ago and it's hard to beleive all of you were here before or at the beginning of the Wu's most noticable happenings. How was it here back in it's young days?

*passes Werther's Originals out*

The first thing I can say is there were no gimmick posters. Just look at any forum where there might be 4000 registered users and maybe 20-50 regulars, this place was like that.

Wu-Chamber had double the posts that General Chat did.

When this place became the official wu-tang website in Oct 2003 it flourished. If you look at the back copy of your Birth OF The Prince, it will be the only album that has this website listed on it.

I can go on but theres something I want to dig up.

Basically forums go in cycles so its hard to tell you what it was like. I think this site had the most people talking about wu-tang is when Pretty Toney was about to drop.

Oh yeah in those days we used to discuss the exclusive news on the front page that even the biggest hip-hop sites would then post on theirs and cite their source as wutangcorp.com.

You can also read up on this short thread in the classic section.

the site was ran by a draconian clog-wearing dickhead named jordi who'd ban people if they said something funny or for posting any media wu-tang related. my first account was permabanned for posting rare (at the time) wu songs which can now be found in the media section.

another forum called wu-tang world was better but it shut down, leaving just this and wu-forever which was always kinda boring and uneventful.



PS. wu's "most noticable happenings" all occurred well before this and all the other wu-tang web forums went online.

At the expense of being negative, I'd have to say that it's gotten progressively worse since I signed up here. It was best back in the Dynasty days. There was no youtube shit. Not so much picture posting shit. People in the hip hop shop or whatever it was called back then, had better taste. Wu were more interesting and there wasn't as much so called "Wu affiliate" shit out there. Better writers in the TOD (no disrespect to the dudes in there now). Better discussions in general chat. Less dickheads. Less fake fucks pretending to be something they're not. Less clones. Less disrespect. KTL was sadly pretty much the same.

Put it this way...I really liked this site back then whereas I pretty much fucken hate it now. Again, excuse the negativity.

there was much less of an affinity for all things homosexual.

the hip hop shop used to be a lot more lively, i used to get a lot more out of it i guess you could say. i feel its way more stagnated now.

Well, there was the U-God dispute and Dirty's death in 2004 and shit. that's what i meant. i mean like in 2003, y'all probably talked bout new ODB records coming out. then when he died you posted threads saying he died. or "RZA and U-God current beef" or some shit.

It always struck me as weird that the site crashed at about the time when ODB died.,

I can't even remember his death being discussed on here widely, maybe because the site wasn't up around that time.

When I joined Pretty Toney had pretty much been released for a month and everybody was loving it.

People believed The Cure was going to be released, aswell.

Some dude was being sonned into oblivion for posting a few pictures of himself at a mostly male dominated party wearing pink clothes.

Methical was gay.

General Chat was more like one big happy circle jerk. But, for the most paet, General Chat was more upbeat with less people trying to tell us they're gangsta - except for Skale aka Shrap aka Egg Head.

De Keet (sp?)

Infact, the only thing consistant from when I first joined to 2009 was the resident loser was a Puerto Rican.

oh yeah i remember that...


popular topics of discussion in those days were:

- lamenting the fact that odb signed with dame dash
- the cure (as already mentioned)
- hope for an ever imminent wu renaissance (similar to the way christian fundamentalists await the return of christ)
- i remember there being more unashamed wu stans where no matter what was released, no matter how truly awful it was, they'd support it. they mostly seem to have gone into hiding since around 2005.
- cappa driving a taxi
- ghost being too "whiny" (contrary to bonerfarm's account, i remember the release of pretty toney causing a sharp divide among people who hated him for mostly abandoning the wu ("there's no wu logo anywhere on the album!"; "he gave d-block features but not rae?!" etc) and people who have good taste in music.

LOL yea he did drive a taxi, in baltimore. he said this in the song "9 Milli Bros":

Eat bones with alligators, roll deep, with my entourage

There was also the unhealthy obsession with Ghost's yellow hat that he wore in the Run video.

Also, once a month people would reminisce about Ma$e.

And the "U-God is the greatest rapper alive" gimmick that GHOSTLACED has adopted in 2009 was actually effective in 2004. That really had people pissed off.

That's true.

I was in the "ghost is a whiny bitch" camp.

I remember there was the group who thought he was a whiny bitch, the group who was stanning like shit and then the group you were in, trying to play it cool but still stanning hard on the track.

No, I mean, literally once a month like clockwork somebody would start a thread;

"Ghost smacked Ma$e"
"YALL HEARD GHOST MURKED MA$E??"
"Ma$E V GHOST BEEF??"

Also, there was the epic Crunk phenomenon. In a nutshell, the GHOSTLACED Lil Wayne is the greatest rapper alive gimmick was also stolen from the old days when some Crunk fans would spam the board with "So and so Crunk artist is the greatest of all time."

Yeah I remember this. Not only were there cunts who'd support anything half Wu related, but there were cunts who'd say anything half Wu related was straight fire. Even Frukwan's album. People used to hate Wade Digital because he was a realist and spoke bluntly about how unimpressive or just straight up wack most the shit coming out around that time was. He was one of very few who did. Zig 9th was another guy who everybody hated for the same reason.
That's true.

I was in the "ghost is a whiny bitch" camp.

I remember there was the group who thought he was a whiny bitch, the group who was stanning like shit and then the group you were in, trying to play it cool but still stanning hard on the track.
Yeah I remember this too. I was one of the most adamant about him being a whiny bitch. I still wholy think he is, only these days I just don't give a fuck and don't listen to his later albums. Ghost has always had the biggest dick rider fans in all of hip hop.
