Biography

After being the resident turntablist on the Wu-Tang Clan's debut album, Enter The Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers, 4th Disciple co-produced several tracks with The RZA on the first three Wu solo ventures by various artists, including some of Raekwon's Only Built 4 Cuban Linx' tracks: "Criminology", "Guillotine (Swordz)", "Spot Rusherz", and "Wu-Gambinos,". 4th Disciple then produced what was at the time only the second Wu-Tang track ever to lack a RZA production credit, when the Killah Priest solo track "B.I.B.L.E. (Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth)" was included on GZA's Liquid Swords. This led to five 4th Disciple productions appearing on the double album Wu-Tang Forever.


After producing 15 of the 17 tracks on Killarmy's debut album, Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars, and featuring heavily on the debut albums of Killah Priest (Heavy Mental) and Sunz of Man (The Last Shall be First), 4th Disciple's beats continued to appear on the solo work of the Clan members, including Inspectah Deck and Method Man. However, more recently, 4th Disciple has been concentrating his production on Killarmy, Sunz of Man, and their immediate affiliates rather than the Clan itself. The RZA did, in fact, produce the tracks "Wake Up" and "War Face" from Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars


4th Disciple's latest production is with a new artist from New Jersey named Bizz, who is signed to independent Blakglobe Records and has a distribution deal through Colossal Entertainment and E1/Koch.[2]
