Wu-Tang Clan is celebrating 25 years of Wu-Tang Forever — the game-changing sophomore album that solidified their spot in hip-hop history.
The Staten Island rap group connected with Get On Down and Legacy Recordings to release Wu-Tang Forever anniversary collection. The set includes the 4xLP album that comes with a lyric booklet, a silver-colored 7-inch single of “Triumph” with “Heaterz” on the b-side, as well as a reissue of the project’s double cassette. The items, which can be purchased separately or in a bundle, are available now for pre-order online. They are expected to ship out in late June or in July.

Wu-Tang Forever dropped on June 3, 1997, and arrived after the group had dispersed to work on various solo efforts. The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) follow-up was a commercial juggernaut, debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and moving 612,000 copies in its first week. It was also nominated for Best Rap Album at the 40th annual Grammy Awards.
In other news, Wu-Tang will soon be linking up with Nas for the N.Y. State of Mind Tour this fall.
