Relatively minor stars in the Wu-Tang constellation, GP Wu released their debut, Don't Go Against the Grain, in 1998. That album was produced by Daddy O from Stetsasonic and Hank Shocklee of Bomb Squad and Public Enemy fame, making the Wu-Tang connection even more tenuous. However, as Wu-Tang Clan historians will undoubtedly know, the four GP Wu members -- Rubberbands, June Luva, Pop da Brown Hornet, and Down Low Recka -- all made appearances on Shyheim's first two albums, Shyheim a/k/a the Rugged Child (1994) and Lost Generation (1996). The connection was made indelible on Shyheim's Manchild album cover from 1999, featuring the shirtless MC with a GP Wu tattoo on his bicep. ~ Wade Kergan, Rovi
