Wu-Tang Clan celebrates 25th anniversary of "Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)"

Legacy RecordingsWu-Tang Clan is celebrating the 25th anniversary of their 1993 debut album, Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), with the release of a documentary about the making of the albumtitled For the Children: 25 Years of Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers).

“The documentary is a 15-minute quick flashback of the times when we first started,” says Raekwon. “Nine members coming from a forgotten borough that nobody ever thought would make it this far. People get to take a glimpse into it and just check out our personalities."

Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) is certified triple platinum and is considered one of the greatest hip-hop albums of all-time. Unsurprisingly, Raekwon's proud to celebrate the album’s 25th anniversary.

“I’m ecstatic because it really did something for our community. It did something for us. It did something for the world,” he says. “People all over the world that was inspired by our dream. Our vision.”

Inspectah Deck adds that the film shows how Wu-Tang helped some of the group members turn their lives around after being released from prison.  “Just some of us is just fresh off the block," he says. "Just coming from incarceration.”

Inspectah Deck also says the 25th anniversary of Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) has brought more attention to the group's legacy. 

"A lot of groups don’t make it 25 months. To make it 25 years and people still appreciate you, like, they appreciate us more,” he says. “It’s worldwide. It’s bigger than us. I run into people that feel more Wu-Tang than I do.” 

Today has also been declared “Wu-Tang Clan Day” in the New York City borough of Staten Island where the nine group members grew up."
