Wu-Tang Clan’s Enter The Wu-Tang To Be Remade
Loud Records founder says Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) will be remade with new MCs
As far as seminal albums go, they don’t come more ground breaking than the 1993 Wu-Tang album, Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). The album not only influenced modern hip hop and returned New York to a place of hip hop prominence, but also went platinum and influenced the likes of
Jay Z and The Notorious B.I.G.
And now it looks like the album could be getting the remake treatment after Loud Records founder, Steve Rifkind revealed on XXL, “We’re gonna make the album with nine MCs from today and each new MC will play a character in the original 36 Chambers.”
And Wu-Tang fans could be in for a treat as Rifkind also hinted that the group could be hitting the road for a “major tour” to mark the album’s 25th anniversary.
And if you’re wondering what happened to the Wu-Tang Clan’s legendary seventh album, Once Upon A Time In Shaolin, of which there is only one copy in existence; it’s currently in the hands of the US attorney’s office after its owner, Martin Shkreli was sentenced to seven years in prison. Both Method Man and Ghostface Killah have made public pleas for the album’s return.
