Contributed by Anaya Ray 

Iconic rap group Wu-Tang Clan is set to have a new documentary that’ll commemorate 25 years since their debut album “Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers).”

The documentary entitled, “For The Children: 25 Years of Enter The Wu-Tang,” is set to release tomorrow, November 9th.

The short film will highlight Wu-Tang’s legendary debut album, arguably one of the greatest hip-hop albums of all time, as reported by The Source.

The documentary, directed by Shomi Patwary, will feature appearances from rappers A$AP Rocky, Joey Bada$$, A$AP Ferg, and many other artists who have been heavily influenced by the Wu-Tang.

Both A$AP Rocky and Ferg weigh in on how the iconic rap group helped inspire the A$AP Mob movement in Harlem in the documentary, according to Billboard.

Along with appearances from other artists the documentary will take a look into the group’s music and its cultural impact on the next generation of MCs.

“I think that the wick is lit and I think we’re going to continue to burn for generations,” RZA, member of the Clan, exclaimed during the trailer.

Along with the documentary, the “Protect Ya Neck” members will unveil a limited-edition merchandise run to honor the 25 year anniversary on their official website. The merchandise will include t-shirts, hoodies, vinyl records, and hats.

The documentary isn’t the only moves the group has been making in their career, according to Pitchfork. The Clan recently launched a makeup line in collaboration with Milk Makeup and R&B singer Teyana Taylor. On top of that, just last month Hulu revealed a new show about the rap group’s origin entitled, “Wu-Tang: An American Saga.”

Wu-Tang Clan’s documentary, “For The Children: 25 Years of Enter The Wu-Tang” will be available Friday exclusively on Youtube.
