July 8 street date. 180 GRAM AUDIOPHILE VINYL. WIDE SPINE SLEEVE. FIRST PRESSING OF 1500 NUMBERED COPIES ON CRYSTAL CLEAR VINYL. The W is the third studio album by the world's baddest Hip Hop group Wu-Tang Clan. Released in 2000, the album debuted at number 5 on the Billboard 200, and instantly topped the R&B/Hip Hop Albums Chart after release. Containing the hit "Gravel Pit", the album was certified Platinum a few months later. After their 1997 album Wu-Tang Forever [MOVLP1055] and several solo projects, The W has a more rugged, less polished sound than most Wu-Tang related albums from that era. Group mastermind RZA produced The W with roughed up Soul samples and tight, tough beats. Paranoid kung fu samples and bizarre sounds drive the fantastic nightmare. The back-to-basics approach (the group's massive debut Enter The Wu-Tang [MOVLP215] comes to mind) works so well because it puts the focus back on some of the best rappers in the game. The album also features guest appearances from Isaac Hayes, Redman, Nas, Busta Rhymes and Snoop Dogg. Also available: Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) [MOVLP215] & Wu-Tang Forever [MOVLP1055]

April 18 street date. RSD 2015 release. "In 1993, an unsuspecting -- and some might say dozing -- hip-hop world was bumrushed by a force that would dominate its consciousness for the rest of the decade: the nine-member Wu-Tang Clan. This is the song that started it all. Originally self-released on cassette and vinyl (with producer and group patriarch The RZA's Staten Island home address on the label), the song blew up in a way that has rarely been equaled in the hip-hop world. The grass roots groundswell it created is part of what built the Wu-Tang legend and kept it strong. The song, beat-wise, is a driving, dusty musical assault. That description holds true lyrically as well, thanks to eight out of nine group members attacking the mic (Masta Killa was absent), one by one -- each showing their unique flow and methodic madness, from GZA's even keel to Ol' Dirty Bastard's manic train of thought. Within months of first exploding on college radio, the song was dominating mainstream hip-hop shows around the world. Eventually picked up by Loud Records, it remains one of the most explosive hip-hop posse cuts of all time, full of intelligence, righteous indignation (at record labels who had dropped and dissed various members of the crew) and raw power. This limited edition (3,000) Record Store Day 12-Inch is pressed on split yellow and black vinyl for the first time ever, with a reproduction of the original cover art and a plastic Get On Down-branded outer sleeve."
