Wu-Tang Clan: Wu-Tang Forever (1997)

wutang foreverBy Scott Goldfine

In one of the year’s biggest rap music events, the nine-member Wu-Tang Clan has released its sophomore album, the two-CD “Wu-Tang Forever.” A lot has happened since the troupe unleashed its critically lauded debut in 1993. Members like Raekwon, Method Man and Ol’ Dirty Bastard have subsequently issued successful solo albums, turning Wu-Tang Clan into a supergroup.

Those who value creative rhymes and stripped-down hip hop will find this two-hour set makes their cup runneth over.
