Hip Hop Producer: Mathematics, also known as Allah Mathematics, (born: Ronald M. Bean) is a producer and DJ for the Wu-Tang Clan. He is known for his distinctly traditional Wu-Tang sound (in contrast to main Clan producer RZA’s constant experimentation and evolution). As well as producing many tracks for the Wu-Tang Clan and for its solo and affiliate projects, Math has released two solo albums.

Born and raised in Jamaica, Queens, New York City, Mathematics was introduced to hip hop by his brother who would bring home recordings of the genre’s pioneers like Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five, Treacherous Three, and Cold Crush Brothers. He began his career in 1987 DJing block parties and park jams in Baisley Projects, going by the name Supreme Cut Master. In 1988 he got his big break by becoming the full-time DJ for experienced rapper Victor C, doing countless shows in clubs and colleges throughout New York City.

1990 proved to be a major turning point in Mathematics’ career as he linked up with GZA/Genius; he was soon to become one of the Wu-Tang Clan’s founding members, but at the time GZA was struggling to build a career on the label Cold Chillin’. This partnership would earn Mathematics a spot on his first official tour, The Cold Chillin Blizzard Tour (which featured popular acts such as Biz Markie, Big Daddy Kane, Kool G Rap & DJ Polo, and Marley Marl, among others).
