Greatest Openers- Bring Da Ruckus
Hitting in 1993, Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) by the Wu-Tang Clan came out of the darkness like a ninja, stunning the hip-hop community with its heavy beats, excellent production, multitude of great rappers, and kung-fu themes. "Bring Da Ruckus" kicks off the madness in style with a sample of kung-fu movie Shaolin and the Wu-Tang. Ghostface follows this with one of the best introductory verses in rap, ending it by claiming "I blow sparks like Waco, Texas." Raekwon, Inspectah Deck, and GZA all contribute stellar verses. RZA supplies the chorus growling, "Bring da motherfuckin' ruckus." In a genre that normally has disposable skits as album openers, Wu-Tang Clan got down to business and brought da ruckus from the beginning.
