Wu-Tang Clan 20th Anniversary: 20 Essential Tracks For the 20th Anniversary

2013 is a big year in Shaolin: it marks the twentieth anniversary of the Wu-Tang Clan’s debut album Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), as well as the year RZA gets on TV in a big way.

But the most exciting news came this past weekend: at Method Man’s 42nd birthday party at the Key Club in Hollywood, he announced that we should “be on the lookout for the 20th anniversary Wu-Tang album out this year.” Whether this means a new album altogether or a re-issue of the ‘93 classic, hip-hop fans have new reason to rejoice.

So to commemorate this special occasion, I’ve compiled a list of 20 essential Wu-Tang tracks:
