In honor of the Staten Island rap group, New York City Mayor Eric Adams has officially named November 9th Wu-Tang Clan Day.
The honorary day also marks the 30th anniversary of their first ever album, ‘Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)’ which was released on November 9th of 1993. This album put the Wu-Tang Clan on the map and legitimized their position in the New York hip-hop scene.
To go along with their new honorary day, Legacy Records is releasing a special edition vinyl copy of ‘Enter the Wu-Tang.’ The long-play record will come with a few extra goodies for the Wu-Tang Clan fans, including a book of notes on the album, a pack of album-themed trading cards and interviews with RZA.
New York City will be celebrating the new honorary day in style, as the Empire State Building is set to be lit up in the Wu-Tang Clan colors of black and yellow this evening.
