What Inspires U-God of The Wu-Tang Clan
U-God is an emcee from the legendary group, The Wu-Tang Clan. Originally from Brooklyn, he moved to Staten Island at a young age and became friends with Cappadonna, Method Man, Inspectah Deck, and Raekwon. When Wu-Tang formed and recorded their debut album in 1993, Enter The Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers, U-God only had a few short appearances due to issues with the law. He was heavily featured on the group’s second album, Wu-Tang Forever, along with the solo track, “Black Shampoo”. U-God’s debut solo album, Golden Arms Redemption, was released in 1999. He followed up with Mr. Xcitement in 2005 and Dopium in 2009. In 2013, U-God released his fourth album, The Keynote Speaker, with production by RZA and features from Method Man, GZA, Inspectah Deck, Kool Keith, Styles P, and Elzhi.
