    The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. (Romans 1:18-20)

    Only a few years ago Hip Hop purists may have felt superior listening to hard core while their less enlightened companions snacked on commercial rap. As Shaolin research began to point out the overwhelming benefits of raw production, true hip hop enthusiasts started turning back to traditional styles. Wu-Tang in particular, has been shown to myriad beneficial effects, from warding off ignorance and poverty to reducing the risk of incarceration and death.

    gold an platinum are based on shipping numbers. these are OTC(over the counter) numbers.

    an album can ship 500,000 units without selling a single copy.

    I'm sure Ironman sold more than 850,000. People were saying that that was the most anticipated Wu album of all time, id of said it sold the same as OBFQL

    Still, for a group that has never been commercially accpeted, those are impressive digits

    how many other rap groups can say over 10 years each of their group albums continued to sell over a million copies

    Damn look at Mr. Xcitement's numbers.... that shit is embarassing.

    U-God said that took him 5 years.... people sell more copies of their albums out of the trunk of their car!!!

    He NEEDS a new clan album other wise his career is gona be pretty much over it seems. U surely can't live an easy living when your album sells just over 3000 copies!

    Yea, I'm suprised U-God isn't selling any cds. He's even getting airplay on BET's Uncut. Grandmasters is only at 25,000? That should at least be where Fishscale is at b/c it came up earlier.

    Props to wade

    Default wrong sales numbers

    I have an wu magazine article that tells how much each wu member sold from the old classic wu albums and those numbers arent correct.

    Enter 36th chamber sold 1.9 million
    Tical sold 1.8 million
    Return to the 36 chamber sold 700,000
    Cuban Link sold 1.1 million
    Liquid Swords sold 850,000
    Ironman sold 1 million units
    Wu-tang forever sold 2.1 million but since it was double cd it was considered 4 million units.
    Pillage did 600,000 (most sucessful killa bee album from wu fam)

    Those are correct numbers because rza sayin them in article.

    Rza also said first Bobby Digital did 700,000 and Gza Beneath did just over 500,000
    Tical 2 did 1.5 million
    Uncontrolled Substance did 450,000 and U-gods did 400,000
