Deadly Venoms
Other Names: Poison Clan, Wu Deadly Venoms

Groups:
Rocks The World Collective /

Status:
Pending

Album:
Deadly Venom [1998];
Pretty Thugs [2000];
Still Standing [2002]

- Champ [aka Shorty the Scorpion, Champ MC]
- J-Boo [aka Viper]
- N-Tyce [aka Poison]

- Finesse [aka Chameleon]

- Lin Que [aka Isis]

- Bambi The Iron Maiden
- Madam Scheez

Most members had semi-successful solo careers before forming as a group. The group were meant to be a parallel group or female version of the Wu-Tang Clan. Each member has had a history in the business with varying degrees of achievement. Finesse, N-Tyce, Champ MC, and newcomer J-Boo were brought together under the tutelage of rap producers Norman "Storm" Bell and Russell "Russ Prez" Pressley in response to the lackluster respect paid to women rappers.

With a vision for a Wu-Tang Clan all female star, the initial cast of female posse that were picked during the audition was actually 10 of them,  J-Boo, Champ MC, D’Dae, Sinner, Madame Starr, Farrah Burns, Lin Que, Finesse, N-Tyce and Blunt, and they had gone on to record a demo of songs including the stand out unreleasd song called "Boulevard" with vocals from Sinner and D'Day and "Bomb Threat"  The number of the group was eventually narrowed down to just five (N-Tyce, Champ, J-Boo, Finesse, and Lin Que), and to 4 with Lin Que leaving the group after their first single and by their last album Finnesse had also left, making it only three last standing members.

Finesse, whose tough pretty-lady persona was one-half of the pioneer female rap duo Finesse & Synquis, had been rapping since 1987 when she and Synquis unleashed a pair of singles, and dropped the album "Soul Sisters".
N-Tyce had recorded since 1990,  but the Greensboro, N.C., native didn't make an impact until the 1994 release of "Hush Hush Tip" which features her Wu brethren The RZA on the beat and Method Man on the hooks.
Champ MC had been rapping professionally since the age of 19 and was considered a female version of Rakim in style and delivery. She performed on a couple of singles for Elektra Records but never attained much individual recognition. A label mate to Yoyo she dropped an album "Ghetto Flava" around 1994. 
J-Boo hails from Queens bridge, NY, a neighbourhood best-known for producing fellow East Coast rapper Nas and Mobb Deep. This stint with the Deadly Venoms represented J-Boo's professional debut as an MC.
A fifth secret member by the name of Isis aka Lin Que mostly known for her affiliation with the infamous X-Clan was meant to complete the cipher but it never manifested due to unknown reasons.
Bambi The Iron Maiden was meant to replace Lin Que after the she left but that never happened but she was featured on the remix of "One To Go" off the album with the Clan members and have gone on to do other collaborations with them.

The group turned from 5 members to 4 with only three members remaining on their third album. The Venoms were originally signed to "A&M" Records and had a planned release called "Deadly Venoms", commonly but wrongly known to fans as "Antidote", which was just a sampler as the album was self titled. The album was recorded but label disputes forced its cancellation. They were later signed to "Dreamworks" and completed a new album called "Pretty Thugs". Advanced copies were subsequently leaked, but again it was never released to the public.The group has not had much luck in terms of releases,  new look Deadly Venoms was unveiled in mid 2002 which unfortunately did not include one of its original members Finesse, who apparently left for business reasons. The group went on to release their third but first official début "Still Standing".

With Finesse leaving the group, The Venoms wanted a West coast rep in the group which came in the form of Maddam Scheez who was also recording with them at that time and managed by Storm but nothing concrete was set if she would have been a member on their fourth album which has not happened to date. The members has since gone on to work on solo projects and on Wu-Internatinal interview in 2011, word was they were plans for the group to come back and record a 4th album with all 4 original members on it.

- Poetic As Grym Reaper [R.I.P. 2001]

- Prince Paul As The Undertaker
- The RZA As Rzarector

First considered a side project of The RZA. The Gravediggaz were brought together by Hip Hop producer Prince Paul shortly after "Enter the 36 Chambers". They are attributed to being the pioneers of the horror-core sound after their debut release "6 Feet Deep". Prince Paul [aka The Undertaker, Dr. Strange] took a backseat role during the group's next album before leaving the group altogether.

It was later reported that RZA too had left the group. Shabazz The Disciple and Omen were called in as replacements, and rumour had it that a new album was recorded. This album was never in fact released [maybe even recorded]. Shabazz and Omen toured Europe as brief members of the Gravediggaz but are no longer associated with this group.

The Gravediggaz then became a duo as the two remaining "core" members Poetic [aka Grym Reaper] and Frukwan [aka Gate Keeper] kept the 'Diggaz name alive. This was until Poetic's untimely death in 2001.

Sunz Of Man MC and popular solo artist. Killah Priest's claim to fame are his super-complex religious-tinged lyrics. First teamed up with 60 Sec from the group The Art OF War, and then teamed with Shabazz The Disciple as the duo Disciples of Armageddon. KP is also balancing his solo career between commitments with the Sunz Of Man, The Maccabeez, and The Four Horsemen.

His reported feud with the RZA has been the subject of much recent interest. This lead to his [possibly forced] absence from the Sunz Of Man's "Saviour's Day" album, also due to the fact he was mainly focused on his solo projects.

This being said, RZA has confirmed that their falling out was on a business and not a personal level. KP's affiliation with the Wu has always remained affirmed.
