25 years later, Wu-Tang’s Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) is timeless, the greatest honor an album can accomplish, earned only by aging without a wrinkle.
With their 1993 debut album, which has just been re-certified 3X Platinum with the RIAA, the nine-man clan created a rich, innovative labyrinth to explore and created the benchmark of culture-defining greatness. Sonically and lyrically the body of work is a neck-breaking rush through the raw cracks and crevices of every room and chamber. Wu-Tang cemented their names, lyrics, sound, and symbol in the unforeseen tomorrow by making what wasn’t in their present. By doing so, they gave hip-hop one of her greatest gifts to be passed down by the generations.
