The Wu-Tang Clan released their iconic double album, Wu-Tang Forever, in 1997. To commemorate the beloved project’s 25th anniversary, Get On Down and Legacy Recordings have released an anniversary collection that includes the original album, a lyric booklet, a silver-colored 7-inch single of “Triumph” (with “Heaterz” on the B-Side) in a picture sleeve and reissue of the double cassette in a slipcase.
In addition, the group will deliver a collection of three digital EPs – Reunited: The Remixes, It’s Yourz, and Triumph – featuring the previously out-of-print Forever-era remixes, edits, instrumentals, and unarchived original single cover art. They are currently available on all digital streaming platforms.
Wu-Tang Clan and Nas are set to go on the road together later this year as part of the N.Y. State of Mind Tour. Named after Nas’ classic Illmatic track, the 25-city tour starts in St. Louis, Missouri, on August 30 and wraps up in Los Angeles, California, on October 4, stopping in cities such as Toronto, Atlanta, and Houston along the way. However, the New York City legends currently don’t have any dates in their hometown. There are two stops in nearby New Jersey — one at the Waterfront Music Pavilion in Camden on September 8 and another at Newark’s Prudential Center on September 13.
