November 9 will officially be known as Wu-Tang Clan Day moving forward. The honorary day was bestowed upon the Staten Island rap group by New York City Mayor Eric Adams.
The day coincides with the 30th anniversary of the group’s debut album, Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). Released in 1993 via BMG, RCA Records and Loud Records, the LP was executive produced by frontman RZA and established the Wu-Tang as a legitimate New York hip-hop act.
On Thursday, November 9, Legacy Records will be rolling out a special edition of Enter the Wu-Tang on vinyl. The box set will also contain a pack of album-themed trading cards, along with a book of notes on the LP, photos and interviews with RZA.
To top it off, the Empire State Building in Manhattan will be lit up in black and yellow – the colors of Wu-Tang – tomorrow to commemorate the anniversary.
