Everywhere You Look: The Eerie Correspondences Between Members Of The Wu-Tang Clan And The Characters Of “Full House”

I’m truly pleased to be a part of The Awl, a site that I have admired for a long time. Here I am writing about the strange similarities between two of my biggest passions, “Full House” and the Wu-Tang Clan.

Everywhere You Look: The Eerie Correspondences Between Members Of The Wu-Tang Clan And The Characters Of “Full House”

In November 1993, the Wu-Tang Clan released its seminal debut album, Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). At the time, the show “Full House,” then in its seventh season, was still dominant in the ratings. What similarities could possible exist between the ’90s most saccharine sitcom and its most respected group of gangsta rappers? More than you might expect. Despite their superficial differences, these are essentially two makeshift families struggling to make do in America; two casts of eccentrics that inexplicably gel to form a cohesive unit. Let’s further explore the complexities that link the West Coast Tanners and the East Coast Wu, revealing them as two sides of the same early 90s coin.
