‘Wu-Tang Clan Day’ To Celebrate Album Anniversary

Forget the gift of silver bling — Wu-Tang Clan got a day named after them Friday to mark the 25th anniversary of their revolutionary debut album, “Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers).”

As part of the milestone celebration of the LP, which came out Nov. 9, 1993, Staten Island has officially proclaimed that Nov. 9 will henceforth be known as Wu-Tang Clan Day.

Surely, Method Man, Ghostface Killah, RZA, Raekwon and the rest of this legendary hip-hop crew would have never imagined that when they brought “da ruckus” out of that borough 25 years ago.

“Enter the Wu-Tang” — which is largely considered one of the best rap albums of all time thanks to tracks such as the classic hip-hop single “C.R.E.A.M.” — was also commemorated on Friday with the release of a new short film about the LP.

“For the Children: 25 Years of Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers),” available in its entirety on YouTube, features interviews with the surviving members of the group. (Ol’ Dirty Bastard passed away in 2004.)

“I think Wu-Tang represents brotherhood, a group of young men who . . . came together for one common cause, man, and made a difference,” Masta Killa says in the film.

“We changed the game, man,” adds U-God. “We made street rap popular.”

The film also features younger rap artists such as A$AP Ferg and A$AP Rocky paying homage to “Enter the Wu-Tang.”

“It was like a collage, it was a painting,” says Ferg. Also, Young Dirty Bastard, ODB’s first-born son, represents for his late father.

Method Man underlines just where the title of the short film came from: “That’s our credo . . . ‘Wu-Tang is for the children.’ ”

Meanwhile, the enduring impact of Wu-Tang Clan and their debut album is summed up by RZA: “I think that the wick is lit, and I think we’re gonna continue to burn for generations.”
