    The Five Percenters: Islam, Hip-Hop and the Gods of New York

    Originating as a cluster of outcasts from the Nation of Islam's Harlem mosque in the 1960s, the Five Percenters are hugely important in modern pop culture, counting 50 Cent and The Wu-Tang Clan among their ranks. Knight's compelling work is the first detailed account of the movement, which is inextricably linked with black empowerment, Islam, New York, and hip hop. It contains unrivalled insider access to the movement's elders, oral histories, and community literature.

    Editorial Reviews - The Wu-Tang Clan and RZAFrom the Publisher
    The Wu-Tang Clan and RZA: A Trip Inside the 36 Chambers chronicles the rise of the Wu-Tang Clan from an underground supergroup to a globally recognized musical conglomerate. Enhanced by the author's one-on-one interviews with group members, the book covers the entire Wu-Tang Clan catalog of studio albums, as well as albums that were produced or heavily influenced by producer/rapper RZA.
    Wu-Tang Clan's albums are analyzed and discussed in terms of their artistry as well as in terms of their critical, cultural, and commercial impact. By delving into the motivation behind the creation of pivotal songs and albums and mining their dense metaphor and wordplay, the book provides an understanding of what made a team of nine friends and relatives from Staten Island with a love of Kung Fu movies into not just a music group, but a powerful cultural movement.
