''Wu-Tang Forever'' is the second studio album of American hip-hop group Wu-Tang Clan, released June 3, 1997 on Loud/RCA Records in the United States. Pressed as a double album, it was released after a long run of successful solo projects from various members of the group, and serves as the follow-up to their debut album ''Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)''. ''Forever'' features several guest appearances from Wu-Tang affiliates Cappadonna, 4th Disciple, True Master, and Tekitha, as well as an extensive embodiment of lesser known members of the group. The album's production has been noted by several music writers as having an aura similar to that of Wu-Tang related albums ''Liquid Swords'', and ''Ironman''.

Despite limited radio /TV airplay and a lead single that famously clocked at nearly 6 minutes with no chorus, ''Wu-Tang Forever'' debuted at number one on the ''Billboard'' 200 with 612,000 copies sold in its first week. The album was certified 4X's platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) on October 15, 1997, making it the group's highest selling album to date. Upon its release, ''Wu-Tang Forever'' received favorable reviews from most music critics and earned the group a Grammy Award nomination for Best Rap Album at the 40th Grammy Awards in 1998. - Wikipedia
