Wu-Tang Clan: Wu-Tang Forever (1997). The Clan Is Back To Stay...

B. Cox and J. Owe look back at rap super group's Wu-Tang Clan's second album Wu-Tang Forever as it turns 25. In the almost four years since they burst on the scene with their classic debut Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), the collective of emcees continued to have an impact on the industry with a number of acclaimed to classic solo LPs by group members, Method Man, Ol' Dirty Bastard, Raekwon, GZA and Ghostface Killah.

As a part of RZA's "Five Year Plan" for the group, the double album dropped at a critical time in hip-hop, reeling from the deaths of Tupac Shakur and the Notorious BIG. Featuring production the aforementioned producer and group member Inspectah Deck, Wu affiliates 4th Disciple and True Master, the album featured a gritty, yet more polished set of beats with a non-stop lyrical assault over almost two hours.

The album was certified 4x Platinum, which is their best selling album to date, and solidified Wu-Tang as a force heading into the new millennium.
