"Liquid Swords" just became the first Wu-Tang album in 11 years to go platinum.
It took twenty years, but GZA's magnum opus Liquid Swords has finally gone platinum. In the September edition of their monthly gold/platinum announcement flyer, the RIAA announced that the album officially crossed the threshold of one million units sold on September 15th. LS dropped on November 7, 1995.
Produced entirely by RZA, Liquid Swords is widely considered to be one of the best solo members from a Wu-Tang member, along with Raekwon's Only Built For Cuban Linx... -- also released in 1995. I guess now we're just waiting on that to go platinum too.
It is the first Wu-Tang album to go platinum since Ghostface Killah’s Ironman, in 2004.
Congrats to GZA and the rest of the Wu.
