Biography

Staten Island, NY (1993 – present)

Jason Hunter, (born July 6, 1971) better known as Inspectah Deck (aka Rebel INS), is an American rapper, producer, and actor. A member of the Wu-Tang Clan, known for his lyricism, he has not achieved the same level of commercial success in his solo career as some of his counterparts (such as Ghostface Killah or Method Man) though he continues to be respected and actively releases material.

Hunter routinely mentions the Park Hill Projects in Clifton, Staten Island, NY, where he grew up, going to school with the future Ghostface Killah, Raekwon and Method Man. Coming from a musical family, his father died when he was 6, and seeing his mother support the family contributed to his laid-back, quiet mentality; this led to his stage name, as he decided to play a low-key counterbalance to the antics of RZA, Method Man and ODB. This is also referenced by Method Man at the end of the track “Can it Be All So Simple?” on Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), stating.

However, Deck was featured as much, if not more, than any other of his fellow clansmen on the group’s 1993 debut album, Enter the Wu Tang: 36 Chambers. While keeping a relatively high profile on Wu-Tang group releases — including highly-praised verses on the singles “C.R.E.A.M.” and “Triumph”, from 36 Chambers and Wu-Tang Forever, respectively — Deck has had less success with his own solo career.
