Iron Flagis the fourth studio album by East Coast hip hop collective Wu-Tang Clan, originally released in 2001. Having churned out a myriad of solo projects since their breakthrough group albumEnter The Wu-TangandWu-Tang Forever, the crew surprisingly came together a year afterThe Wto launch this album.
Rather than stick to one unified sound for most of the album's tracks, as with previous Clan albums, much ofIron Flag returns to many different individual sounds and styles that the Wu-Tang had visited over the years. Sonical influences range from RZA's Bobby Digital sound to the gritty style of the Wu-Tang's debut album, and the sped-up vocal samples style ofWu-Tang Forever.
Iron Flagalso makes use of non-Wu artists well known in their own right: Flavor Flav of Public Enemy and soul legend Ronald Isley make appearances.
Heavyweight double vinyl produced by Columbia Records in 2017. Includes download card.
