The 25 Best Hip-Hop Documentaries

25. Wu: The Story of the Wu-Tang Clan (2007)

Director: Gerald Barclay

In Wu: The Story of the Wu-Tang Clan, which aired on BET, the Staten Island hip-hop group's history is told with flair; All of the crews's dips and rises are illustrated through old interview footage with the members, new footage with minor characters on the Clan's periphery, and punctuated by tasty sound bites of ODB spouting offbeat wisdom.

The film doesn't give much new insight, instead it outlines the Clan's career (with a particular focus on OBD); It's a refresher course more than it is a history lesson. But when the subject matter is Wu-Tang, we're paying attention.
