Wu-Tang Forever is getting a special vinyl revamp in honor of its 25th anniversary.

The famed 1997 double album from Wu-Tang Clan will be commemorated with a special vinyl pressing that includes a lyrical booklet, a silver-colored 7-inch single of hit single “Triumph” with album cut “Heaterz” as the B-side. The release also includes a reissue of the album’s double cassette in a slipcase.

Wu-Tang Clan is also dropping a new video interview from 1997’s “Triumph” video shoot. They also announced Wu-Niverse, a series of short documentaries that focus on the some of the group’s biggest fans and examines their devotion of one of the most famously broad fanbases in the rap game.

Released on June 3, 1997, Wu-Tang Forever was one of the most highly-anticipated albums of the late 1990s. The double album arrived following various successful solo efforts from the group's members and the widespread critical acclaim of their debut album, Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) in 1993. The Wu's follow-up was a commercial blockbuster: Wu-Tang Forever would debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and sell 612,000 copies in its first week. It was nominated for Best Rap Album at the 40th annual Grammy Awards in 1998.
