Celebrating 20 years of the landmark album.
June 3rd marks the 20th anniversary for Wu-Tang’s highest selling album up to date; Wu-Tang Forever. With everyone having high expectations after their debut album 36 Chambers the clan made sure to come with everything they had with this double disc album. Needless to say, THEY DELIVERED. Since the release the album has now gone platinum 2 times. Wu-Tang Forever also earned a Grammy nomination for the Best Rap Album at the 40th Grammy Awards in 1998.
Accolades aside, this is by far one of the greatest hip-hop albums ever known to man. You hardly ever see in hip-hop this many MC’s come together and create such a prolific album. With RZA handling most of the album production, we’re given some of the same elements and sounds we came to love from 36 Chambers. Not to mention the Kung-Fu infused references that the Wu came to glorify throughout all their music.
We’ve put together a list of the best verses from the album of each respective member.
