Vocalist
    (November 10, 1970- )
    Born in Brooklyn, New York
    Birth name was Lamont Jody Hawkins
    Member of the Wu Tang Clan
    Recorded the solo albums ‘Golden Arms Redemption’ (1999), ‘Mr. Xcitement’ (2005), ‘Dopium’ (2009), ‘The Keynote Speaker’ (2013), and ‘Venom’ (2018)
    Wrote the memoir ‘Raw: My Journey into the Wu-Tang’ (2018)
    He originally rapped under the name Golden Arms.
    He was a crack dealer.
    He missed most of the recording sessions for Wu Tang’s debut album after being convicted on drug and firearm possession charges.
    He returned to jail for parole violations at several key points in Wu Tang’s rise.
    A New Yorker profile called him ‘the least-loved member’ of Wu Tang.
    He witnessed his mother being robbed when he was nine.
    His two-year-old son Dontae lost a kidney after taking bullets when someone used him as a human shield during a shootout (March 13, 1994).
    He claimed that the rest of Wu Tang (with the exception of Method Man) failed to offer moral support after the shooting: ‘They rubbed their fame and their wealth in my face even more.’
    He said, ‘I don't want to glorify violence. I talk about it because I know that I'm not the only one going through it.’
