Biography

According to U-God, before the Wu-Tang days, he was a beatbox for Cappadonna before getting into rap.

He made his debut on the songs "Ice Cream" & "Ice Water" on Raekwon's Only Built 4 Cuban Linx. In late 1996, he appeared on the track "Winter Warz" for the soundtrack to Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood[1] alongside Ghostface Killah, Masta Killa, U-God, and Raekwon, and made several prominent appearances on the group's second album Wu-Tang Forever in 1997, most notably on the stand-out lead single "Triumph."

Rumors abound about his brief change in vocation: it is hypothesized that he did so in order to support himself and his family, while Cappadonna's own explanation is that "he intentionally gave up what material possessions he had amassed and walked the streets of Baltimore for 8 months, before returning to the rap game".[2] Regardless, he returned to the music industry shortly after, releasing 2003's The Struggle album. This album featured some Wu-Tang Clan members, and was released on Wu affiliate Remedy's record label.
