First name: Wu-Tang. Last name: Forever.
Ol' Dirty Bastard was a rock star. Rappers don’t OD—rock stars OD—because rappers tend to get shot before they have the chance. That, and often, the only drugs rappers can afford is weed after buying all those shiny useless things and “making it rain.” But ODB didn’t have a lot of shiny useless things. He had a lot of children (thirteen), coke, and Tramadol. Also, the first two initials in his name—OD. Let’s face it, ODB had to OD.
Of course, drug abuse and psychological issues weren’t his only friends. He also had the RZA, the GZA/Genius, Method Man, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, Inspectah Deck, U-God, and Masta Killa. Together, they formed the Wu-Tang Clan in the early 90s, created one of the most classic rap debuts ever, and followed with numerous critically and/or commercially acclaimed group and solo efforts, creating a lasting cultural impact.

La the Darkman - Heist of the Century (1998)
La the Darkman's debut album isn't exactly overlooked by Wu-Heads but it's most definitely overlooked by the hip hop general population. Released at the height of the Wu-Tang Clan's glory days, Heist of the Century runs for a little over an hour and spans eighteen tracks. La the Darkman's smooth flow is excellent on every single track especially the opening track "Lucci", "Az the World Turns" and "Wu-Blood Kin"
Production comes from Six July (who has nine tracks on the album), Havoc (of Mobb Deep - two tracks), DJ Muggs (one), 4th Disciple (four) and the RZA (also one). Raekwon co-produces "Spring Water" with Six July. The production is tight, and among the best of the Wu-Tang Killa Beez albums. Six July really knows how to put a good beat behind an MC.
Guest spots come from, DJ Rogers, JR. …
