Personal Quote:

You could say we [The Wu-tang Clan] have a cult-like following. I saw this dude one night at a concert with a Wutang tattoo on his face. I've never seen anyone with a G-Unit tattoo like that. To many, we're icons.

Trivia:

Was the first from Wutang to get a record deal, though at first unsuccessfully. He then joined with his cousins to bring in the larger group and form the clan between Staten Island and Brooklyn, NYC. See more »
