Hailing from Queens, New York City, The Shadow Clan was a movement within underground hip-hop that made waves in the early 2000s. Essentially, they were a 90's hip-hop loving army of young artists born under the auspices of the legendary Zulu Nation. This neo-throwback crew has won many fans among chamber music listeners with their raw, no-nonsense style that harkens back to the days of both the Native Tongues and early Wu-Tang movements. "The Essence" was the first mixtape album from Shadow Clan underboss Jus-P. It features several Shadow Clan members, including GS Advance and Fivestarr aka Bigz, who also contributes several original tracks. 
Quite frankly, this is underground hardcore hip-hop at its finest, and we are finally presenting it properly to all retail outlets. Take a ride through Queens circa 2007 with these then young Z's as they take you back to that tru-skool feeling, but at the same time, perhaps the most important and original movement in Hip-Hop. It should be noted that Shadow Clan preceded both the Pro Era movement that would come a few years later and the Griselda movement that would come a little later.
