16 Year Anniversary of 'The W'
The W was the third studio album by the Wu-Tang Clan. It was released on November 21, 2000, by Loud Records. After their 1997 double album Wu-Tang Forever, several of the group's members released solo projects before The W, which has a more rugged, less polished sound than that of most Wu-Tang related albums from that era. The album also features guest appearances from Isaac Hayes, Redman, Nas, Busta Rhymes, Snoop Dogg, and Junior Reid.
