Cappadonna – Artist Management
Cappadonna, is an American rapper and unofficial member of the hip-hop cumulative Wu-Tang Clan. He is also a participant of rap team Theodore Unit with Ghostface Killah.
Cappadonna (also referred to as Cappachino) belonged to the very early stages of just what was to end up being the Wu-Tang Clan, with RZA, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Ghostface Killah, and Raekwon. However, Cappadonna visited prison and was switched out by Method Man.
In the 2010 docudrama Wu-Tang Saga, Cappadonna specified that his name is a phrase: “Consider All Poor People Acceptable Don’t Oppress Nor Neglect Anyone.”.
Cappadonna made his recording launching as a member of the Wu-Tang Clan on Raekwon’s hit single “Ice Cream”. He was also a visitor celebrity, together with Raekwon, on Ghostface Killah’s solo launching cd, Ironman. He made his opening night on a Wu-Tang Clan cd in 1997 on Wu-Tang Forever on the single “Triumph”. Following his appearance on Forever, he added dramatically to the team’s 3rd workshop cd, The W, whereupon his looks were no longer marked with “Featuring Cappadonna”, as they had actually been on Forever. After a resulting with RZA the next year over nobilities, he did not appear whatsoever on the team’s succeeding album Iron Flag. He ultimately reunited with the team for their performance at 2004’s Rock the Bells, and showed up on 2007’s 8 Diagrams.
Cappadonna’s condition as a Wu-Tang participant or as a showcased artist has actually varied throughout the years. While lengthy described by both the team and followers as the “Unofficial Tenth Member”, there is no confirmation on whether he really became the official tenth member complying with the death of Ol’ Dirty Bastard. While MTV.com’s biographies of both him and the team case that he is a main participant, their subsequent bios on the team’s formal website do not list him as such. Additionally, while his vocals on 8 Diagrams were not marked with “Feat. Cappadonna”, much like The W, he does not appear on the front cover with the initial 8 living members, and is not featured in the cd’s pamphlet with an image, although he is included in the team’s shout-out’s sections.
Cappadonna’s first solo initiative was 1998’s The Pillage which debuted at # 3 on the plans and accredited Gold. His follow-up – 2001’s “The Ying and The Yang” – consulted similar essential and commercial success. Remaining vigilant in his support of The Clan, he then showcased on over 25 launches including classics from Raekwon, Method Man and Ghostface.
Understood for his multicolored wardrobe, he often refers to stylist and his huge collection of store clothes in his raps.
