Licking his wounds, RZA developed the Wu-Tang Clan concept and a plan to infiltrate the record industry.

RZA’s machinations worked: just a few years later, Wu-Tang Clan members were signed to five of the (then) six major record labels.

Dennis aka Ghostface Killah is still angry with the Park Hill people for shooting up his house (from the first episode) so we need to see how and why he lets go of that animosity to become part of the group. And Tommy Boy Records? As far as legends go, what hasn’t been said?

Raekwon’s mafioso rap opus Only Built 4 Cuban Linx… is colloquially known as “The Purple Tape” for its distinctly colored cassette.

The two rappers bumped into each other at an NYC club and Ma$e was left with a broken jaw, inspiring Kanye West’s ‘Through the Wire’ line “If you could feel how my face felt, you would know how Ma$e felt,” and for a long time it’s been considered as fact that it was Pretty Toney himself who landed the blow.

This week's episode of 'Wu-Tang: An American Saga' was titled 'Labels' and was a piece of cinematic genius. Method Man has been the most visible actor in the crew, both in comedies like How High and more serious fare, whether on the small (Oz, The Wire) or big screens (Red Tails, Cop Land).

hitType: 'event', Apparently this wasn’t entirely down to Deck himself, either – the album was originally set for release in 1997, not long after Ghosface’s acclaimed debut Ironman, but these plans were ruined when RZA’s basement studio flooded. After they made 50 of the things (and RZA invested a boatload of cash) the inventor excitedly took the Replicator to a trade fair, mistakenly showing it off before the technology had properly been patented. He also doesn’t suffer fools gladly, and when 50 Cent dropped a relatively mild diss on 1999’s ‘How To Rob’ (“Catch Rae, Ghost and RZA for them funny ass rings”), Ghost quickly hit back with a skit on Supreme Clientele. eventCategory: event.slot.getSlotElementId(), The cover of Raekwon’s stone-cold classic Only Built 4 Cuban Linx was the first time Ghostface appeared without his mask. Even GZA (Gary), his cousin had a similar experience at Cold Chillin Records.

A mastermind, a genius, a stoner, a psycho, a couple of street-wise storytellers, and — let’s face it — three guys in the right place at the right time: the Wu-Tang Clan rewrote the script for hip-hop, in New York and beyond, from the streets of lowly Staten Island. Predictably, RZA is the most accomplished, and in the most numerous ways: he’s directed (The Man with the Iron Fists), composed (Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai, among others), and appeared as an actor dozens of time — most interestedly as Bobby Digital in an Upright Citizens Brigade sketch and as a rapper named Samurai Apocalypse on Californication. Divine's role as the group's manager has not been set up yet either. The label was an outgrowth of Silverman's Dance Music Report bi-weekly publication, which spanned 14 years, beginning in September 1978.
