The hip hop group Wu-Tang Clan has various "affiliates" which receive support, financial and otherwise, from the Wu-Tang Clan. This is a list of musical groups and producers that are officially affiliated with the group, mostly through the RZA.[1] The association of these affiliates with Wu-Tang varies greatly. Many on this list are virtually unknown, creating future projects, while many are already successful musicians themselves. Generally, some of the most acclaimed Wu-Tang affiliates are the ones with the closest actual ties to members of the group; Cappadonna became the next Wu member following Ol' Dirty Bastard's death, Killah Priest, 4th Disciple, Mathematics, Sunz of Man, Killarmy and Streetlife are also closely linked to the Clan.
