The Samples Behind Wu-Tang Clan’s ‘Wu-Tang Forever’

It’s been two decades since the Wu-Tang Clan dropped their highly anticipated second studio album, Wu-Tang Forever. Released on June 3, 1997, the project featured three singles: “Triumph,” “It’s Yourz,” and “Reunited.”

Produced almost entirely by RZA, Wu-Tang Forever debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and sold 612,000 copies in its first week. It also earned the group a Grammy nomination for Best Rap Album and has since been certified quadruple platinum.

To celebrate its anniversary, Power 106’s Wax Only series has taken a look at some of the album’s most recognizable samples. Watch the video above.
