Certified Classics celebrates the 25th Anniversary of Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) with a limited run of Wu-Tang Clan’s iconic third single “C.R.E.A.M.” as a special Die-Cut 10” Picture Disc in the shape of the legendary Wu-Tang Logo. Originally released in 2014 as a Record Store Day exclusive, the re-issue vinyl is backed with the single’s original B-side “The Mystery of Chessboxin” which will be available on December 14th at the Certified Classics store. Merch bundles will also be available.
Certified has also teamed up with Live Nation — Wu-Tang’s official merch company — to release an exclusive “36 Chambers” T-Shirt to commemorate this milestone album anniversary. This special edition tee will be bundled together with Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) album on 12” black vinyl, the re-run Wu-Tang logo picture shaped vinyl, a limited edition numbered print of the album and more.
Additionally, in conjunction with the anniversary, Wu-Tang Clan is set to perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to close out the shows Brooklyn, New York run tonight (Fri, Oct 19th). They will perform songs from Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). Additional announcements are coming in the weeks ahead.
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.
