Who changed hip hop? Who shaped my generation? The man who’s name you will only read if you’re a kid. It’s the Wu-Tang Clan. That doesn’t mean he’s a one-man band; it means he’s their leader. And he’s the reason we are what we are today.

He had a great group called the “Jamaican Rockers” or “J-Rockers.” As far as his background goes, Snoop came here in ’95 and was always a fan of hip hop.
