Wu Tang Clan releasing 20th anniversary of ‘Wu-Tang Forever’

Rap Supergroup Offers Exclusive Packages To Mark Two Decades Since The Release Of Their Iconic Second Album

Revolutionary hip-hop outfit Wu-Tang Clan has joined forces with PledgeMusic to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their acclaimed second release, Wu-Tang Forever. The group is commemorating the album’s debut by offering fans exclusive packages, unreleased content, and limited-edition memorabilia.

Fans can pre-order Wu-Tang Forever 20th anniversary packages on the group’s PledgeMusic campaign page. The leaders in direct-to-fan platforms, PledgeMusic allows artists to get more personal with their fans, offering pledgers never-before-heard content and items not available anywhere else.

Despite limited radio/TV airplay, and a lead single that famously clocked at nearly six minutes with no chorus, Wu-Tang Forever debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 with 612,000 copies sold in its first week. The album was certified 4× platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) on October 15, 1997 and has sold over two million copies in the United States. The Wu-Tang Clan’s highest selling album to date, Wu-Tang Forever earned the group a Grammy Award nomination for Best Rap Album at the 40th Grammy Awards in 1998.

Now, through their partnership with PledgeMusic, Wu-Tang Clan is giving fans the opportunity to tap into rap music history with special offerings unavailable anywhere else.

Fans who pre-order the limited release will get the AccessPass which will give them special access to exclusive packages, unreleased content, and memorabilia straight from the band. These include: the Wu-Tang “Reunited” Remix Bundle including Wu-Tang Forever on vinyl with “Reunited” 7 inch box set featuring unreleased remixes, a 20th Anniversary edition of the album on marble colored vinyl, an exclusive anniversary T-shirt, Wu-Tang Clan socks, and more; the Ultimate RZA signed 20th Anniversary Wu-Tang Forever Bundle featuring the Rare Remix Collection box set on yellow/black Split 7″ vinyl, the 20th anniversary version of Wu-Tang Forever on marble colored vinyl, lithograph, and more – all autographed by the legendary rapper; limited-edition 20th anniversary apparel; and much more.
