RZA
RZA
The mad genius behind one of the most important crews in the history of hip-hop, RZA has rewritten the rules for making beats. Following a brief stint as Prince Rakeem in 1991, he came back with a vengeance, masterminding the Wu's classic debut Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) in 1993. The rest is history. The Clan blew up, spawning clothing lines, movies, comic books, video games and seemingly unlimited numbers of solo albums, but it was the Rzarector's trademark sound that made it all possible. In addition to his work on Wu records, both group and solo, he has managed to stay quite busy. He was a founding member of Gravediggaz and he has begun working in film, both as a director and a composer. In 1998 he recorded his futuristic concept album RZA as Bobby Digital in Stereo. The sophisticated pseudo-soundtrack went over the heads of many Clan fans, but displayed his need for experimentation and growth as an artist. The RZA would release three more solo projects over the next decade, two additional Bobby Digital projects (2001's Digital Bullet and 2008's Digi Snax) as well as 2004's Birth of a Prince.

Sometime before the members united, U-God was mentored in rap by Cappadonna.

Eyenine
Eyenine
Every so often an artist emerges that changes the face of a generation forever. This type of gifted person is an anomaly and changes everything and everybody that he comes in contact with. Eyenine is that anomaly.

Born Michael Gene Dionne, Eyenine is an underground hip-hop artist from New Hampshire. He has shared the stage with many influential artists including Mr. Lif, Razhel, Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, Lyrics Born, AWOL One, Jedi Mind Tricks, Kristoff Krane, Adeem, Bleubird, Witness, Sadistik, C Rayz Walz, iCON the Mic King, and Ceschi Ramos, to name a few.

After releasing a full-length album and a free EP through the New Hampshire-based indie label Flyrock Records, Afraid to Dream was released in late 2011 featuring guest appearances from Eyedea (R.EYE.P, Rhymesayers) and Mac Lethal (Rhymesayers). The album was met with critical acclaim and caught the attention of the legendary producer, artist, and visionary, the RZA. His new EP entitled Dissembler is an eclectic mix of emotional lyrics, insightful self-talk, and societal and political low blows. His quick delivery and slow, soothing vocal variation will keep all listeners on their toes. Eyenine is now being managed by the Wu Tang Music Group’s affiliated REAL HOOD MUSIC, LLC., team.
