Living in Staten Island, New York, Popa Wu (whose name is sometimes stylized as “Papa Wu” and “Poppa Wu”) was involved in the life of RZA since The Abbott was an infant. He was related to RZA, GZA, and the late Ol’ Dirty Bastard, according to reports. “When RZA was born, he was put into my arms as a baby. I always told him he was going to be a great man,” the man, also known as Freedom Allah, was quoted as saying earlier this year. He appeared in Wu-Tang: Of Mics And Men at the top of 2019.

Chill. 90 minutes extended version. I believe I met Masta KIlla before any of them. I used to call RZA after school in 11th grade. I had many teachers but this relationship is special. Allah Lives. Peace. Khalik Allah, Produced, Directed, Photographed, Edited, Narrated. Peacefulness. ©KhalikAllah (2010) I made this film ages 21-25. Also, CeeAaquil Allah gave me my 120 education.

Popa Wu was reportedly instrumental in mentoring Clan members to the Five Percent Nation Of Gods And Earths. He was working on a memoir at the time of his passing.
Amid the mid-1990s success of Wu-Tang, Popa Wu made appearances on Raekwon’s Only Built 4 Cuban Linx… (“North Star”) and Ghostface Killah’s Ironman (“All That I Got Is You”), among many others. He tackled the intro on Wu-Tang Forever, shortly before releasing his first solo album, Visions Of The 10th Chamber. He appeared on various Wu-Tang projects in the last 20 years, in addition to Lord Jamar’s 5% Album.
