Travel to the corner of Vanderbilt Avenue and Targee Street in the Clifton neighborhood of Staten Island and you'll see a literal signpost honoring some of the area's most famous emcees: the Wu-Tang Clan.

On May 4, 2019, the Staten Island-raised posse were on hand to dedicate "Wu-Tang Clan District" as a tribute to their lives and blockbuster hip-hop careers. From their landmark debut Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) to the tidal wave of solo albums that came from members Ol' Dirty Bastard, Method Man, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah and others, the group's impact on rap in the '90s and '00s is hard to overstate.

"I never saw this coming," Ghostface said at the dedication. “I knew we were some ill MCs, but I didn't know that it'd take it this far.”
