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.[1] 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.[2] 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.

The group's lyrics differed in many ways from those of 36 Chambers, with many verses written in stream-of-consciousness style and heavily influenced by the teachings of the Five Percent Nation. The group showed some mature depth as well, speaking on the pitfalls of life's vices ("A Better Tomorrow") and the harsh realities of the inner city life. "Impossible," for instance, even touches on the less glamorized realities of the same violence that the Clan has often paraded.

The Wu-Tang Clan took advantage of the double-disc format, allowing each of the 9 members with a significant number of appearances, including three solo tracks. Several of the members have been recognized for particularly strong performances:

Inspectah Deck raised his stock in the public eye with The Source's Hip-Hop Quotable for his performance on "Triumph". This verse is also considered by many to be one of the greatest hip-hop verses of all time.[5] Despite being one of the last clan members to release a solo album, his contributions throughout Wu-Tang Forever lead to being a highly sought after guest collaborator; appearing in the near future on tracks for Gang Starr, Pete Rock and Big Pun, among others.

Ghostface Killah continued his rise to fame with his verse in "Impossible," which was hailed by RZA in the Wu-Tang Manual as "the greatest Wu-Tang verse ever written," and was also featured in The Source's Hip-Hop Quotable. "Cash Still Rules/Scary Hours" has also been noted as one of his memorable verses on the album, for his verse cut-off, first popularizing the feel that he could "go on forever". Ghostface would follow up his work on Forever with Supreme Clientele, which is generally regarded as a classic in the Hip-Hop album canon.
