[VIDEO] Kendrick Lamar, Rick Ross, N.O.R.E. & More Remember Wu-Tang's ' Enter The Wu Tang (36 Chambers)' Album

Saturday, November 9th marked the 20th anniversay of Wu-Tang Clan's debut album Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). While I was only 4 years old when it dropped, I still remember the impact the album had on me growing up thanks to my sister blasting it constantly. Once I'd matured and was able to appreciate it for myself, I went back to form my own love for the 9 man army.

Like myself and millions of others, today's upper echelon of emcees have also been inspired by the work and accomplishments of Wu-Tang. In a special Rap Fix Live moment with MTV's Sway, members U-God, Masta Killa and honorary member Cappadonna were presented with a video compilation of clips from N.O.R.E., DJ Khaled, Kendrick Lamar, 2 Chainz, Rick Ross, ScHoolboy Q, Big Sean and A$AP Rocky-- all expressing their gratitude for the Wu-Tang movement.

Lupe Fiasco Breaks Down On MTV RapFix After Watching Old Footage Of His Chicago Neighborhood [VIDEO]

The murder rate in Chicago is out of control, and while thousands have been affected, seeing how the senseless crimes have affected Lupe Fiasco makes the impact even more real. Yesterday, during his stop through MTV's Rap Fix Live, Sway played 2006 footage of My Block: Chicago, which showcased Lupe giving the reporter a tour of the hood where he was raised. After the clip ended, Lupe couldn't contain his emotion and disappointment knowing that six years later, things had not gotten any better. 

Come on world.

MTV Rap Fix Live Celebrates Its 1 Year Anniversary

Yesterday, MTV Rap Fix Live celebrated its 1st year anniversary live on its 4PM show.  I wasn't able to watch it live, but I've been going through all of the clips on MTV this morning.  Has it only been 1 year? It seems like Rap Fix has been one of the most important staples in Hip Hop lately.

Since the show debuted, MTV Rap Fix has filled the void that's been missing in Hip Hop video journalism.  Television is quickly becoming a less influential channel for music, and Rap Fix Live's creators recognized the need for more of a central, online presence. Since the focus on most music networks no longer rests on the actual music, it's great that we have Sway to represent and provide an unbiased, reputable voice.

Hit the jump to watch some of the most memorable moments of the Anniversary episode!
