The “unofficial official” tenth member of the Wu-Tang Clan, Cappadonna has been involved with Wu-Tang since the group’s inception. During the formative years of the Clan, Cappa was slated to become a core member until his incarceration delayed his musical career. Like other members of the group, Cappadonna’s name has a hidden meaning via acronym—Consider All Poor People Acceptable Don’t Oppress Nor Neglect Anyone.
1998’s The Pillage, Cappadonna’s own debut album, was produced by RZA (executively more than anything) and Wu-Elements (a quartet of Wu-Tang Killa Beez producers). Cappaccino has dropped nine solo albums, with numerous other collaborations.
