Royal Fam
Other Names: Royal Famous / Royal Family

Status:
Active

Album:
Yesterday, Today, Iz Tomorrow [2000];
Timbo King Presents: Black Castle [2006]

- Timbo King [a.k.a. King Tymel, Timbuktu, Bo King]

- Dark Ages [a.k.a. Dark Denim, Dark Knight]
- Mighty Jarret [a.k.a. Malachi, Mighty Jarrad]
- Y-Kim The Ill Figure

- Dreddy Kruger [a.k.a Dutch Master] 
- Benny Boom

- Q-Base [a.k.a. The Royal Visar]
- Stoneface [a.k.a Sharekka]
 

A lot of confusion has existed over the exact members of this group. It was even suggested that Popa Wu was once a member. Early radio freestyles featuring Royal Fam featured some unknown artists. Two of which were Roc and Jahrule [not of the Murderers Inc.] - both were present on the track "Army Brickaid" from Royal Fam's unofficial debut release. Timbo King has made mention that the Royal Fam consists of mainly 3 members, himself, Dark Ages & Malachi  and Y-kim as the producer with featuring or introducing  others, which have not been mentioned, certainly the presence of Roc and Ja Rule would support this statement.

Timbo King is undoubtedly the group's main MC handling the majority of rhyming duties. Dreddy has also made a number of Wu album appearances. Dark Denim released a solo track early in his career called "Doin' Our Thang" featuring Lord Smooth, under the name Dark Ages.
Early in their inception, a project called "Black Castle" was rumoured to have been recorded, and was to be jointly distributed by "Capitol Records" and "Wu-Tang Records". "Black Castle" even had a "catalogue number" [a right which is reserved only for completed albums, EP's or singles]. This would suggest some truth to this mystery, but as yet, only a handful of tracks from this supposed album has been released.

In early 2000, copies of a Royal Fam album was released in Europe and was subsequently made available worldwide, without the knowledge and consent of the group itself. Y-kim has promised to release the album officially. Around 2006 Nature Sound records geared up to release the long lost Black Castle as presented by Timbo King but album got shelved due to  unknown reasons with only promos released to DJs, promoters and so on.

The Sun is one light, and the man stands for intelligence. The Sunz Of Man have seen a few roster changes since their interception [before Wu-Tang]. Back then the Sunz were without 60 Second Assassin, but had 7th Ambassador (aka Holy Ghost, Zodiac Killa) and Shabazz The Disciple in their ranks. It was this outfit that worked with the then Wu producer Supreme Kourt and recorded a number of tracks. Right after Wu-tang dropped 36 Chambers, Priest and Shabazz became The Disciples, another off-shot from the group was The Art Of War which was just Priest and 60 Sec, and then there was just Razah and Prodigal Sunn as Sunz Of Man. Word also had it 4th disciple was supposed to be in the group as well but had he's own group then which was Killarmy coming out, and didnt have much time to unite with the Sunz of man at that level. Their style at that time was quite similar to that of Gravediggaz, who called their "horror-core" and Sunz of man type music was called "holy-core". Shabazz, Priest, Razah, Sunzini and Kevin (RIP) had a demo deal over at Atlantic records which RZA managed to listen to around the same time he was recording albums with the Gravediggaz and quickly signed them into Wu-Tang records before Atlantic records had the chance to  and the rest was history.

Shortly after, Shabazz left the group to pursue a solo career and 7th Ambassador retired from the rap game altogether (only to appear later on Hell Razah's solo debut album).
The Sunz Of Man played a pioneering role in the formation of the (now changed) United Kingdom group, and have many close Wu affiliates including Ol' Dirty Bastard, Timbo King and Dreddy Kruger.
Due to his deals and travels, Killah Priest was absent from the group's third album "Saviorz Day". future recordings may see his return, but only time will tell.

Should be called Wu-tang killa bees to make it all simple. Originally known as Population Click (with a very large contingent of MC's) Perhaps the most mysterious aspect of this group are its members. Strangely a number of Wu groups all claim UK, and their are not exactly same Click, there is the first known group which is also known as Population Click and claimed by the Sunz Of Man, Royal fam and so on and there's the other UK as claimed by Popa Wu, Division and so on. They may or may not be the same group, but both groups have worked within themselves respectively and the former claims Population click while the others only Claim UK. Brooklyn Zoo seems to be the only tie or connection to both groups

They was a group from Africa and was cited as being part of United Kingdom by Makeba Mooncycle during an interview. Rumours once suggested that the group were working on an album called "The Collision". UK's first single was "Wake Up" b/w "Soldiers of Darkness" (these later became Killarmy and Sunz Of Man singles).

Based off research and interviews, the most common summery of this collective and its history is that Sunz of Man, Royal Fam and Killarmy were initially collaborating between each other and started calling themselves U.K, the single Wake up is a testament to this. The collective grew larger with time and the likes of Ancient Coins, Brooklyn Zu and Black Rose Kartel all entered the fold, all reppin it and collaborating with each other especially on projects like the Undapendant compilation singe "United Kings" as well as other projects in Europe. The collective never really released anything together to date and as time have gone on each member hardly talk about this collective anymore.

 

United Kingdom
Other Name: U.K.
Status: Inactive
Album:

- Ace Council
- Allah Real
- C.C. F Division
- Brooklyn Zu
- Don Chulo  
- Dungeon Master 
- I-Born
- Kendra aka Johnnie Mae 
- Lady Raw
- Laquan
- Laza-Life
- Popa Wu
- Pee Frois
- Suga Bang Bang
- Ty-Jigs
- The Manchuz
- Zu Ninjaz

The second formation of United Kingdom, slightly different from from Population click in terms of affiliation and claim. Popa Wu's is responsible for the formation of this new UK group. A lot of speculation has taken place as to who exactly is part of this group. , but their present roster is still unclear. The most conclusive one to date lists these groups (in capitals) and solo members in small letters: Ace Council, Allah Real,  BROOKLYN ZU, CUFFIE CRIME FAMILY [now DIVISION], Don Chulo, Duck Low, Dungeon Masta, I Born, Kendra, Laquan, Lady Raw, Laza-Life, THE MANCHUZ, Nikki, Popa Wu, PEE FROIS, Pyzone, ROYAL FAM, Suga Bang Bang, SUNZ OF MAN, Ty-Jigs, and ZU NINJAZ. The group have released only a handful of tracks under the name United Kingdom, and their only Wu album appearance was on Popa Wu's solo offerings. Not all the UK members may be Wu affiliates. PEE FROIS may be just one example.

The retail release of Popa Wu's "10th Chamber" listed the United Kingdom as only 3 members: I Born, Laza-Life and Dungeon Masta. This is likely to be the new outfit for this group.

Former Black Knights MC, popular for his ultra-detailed multi-layered poetry, and correct english pronounciations. Has a limp in his walk due to truck accident many years ago during a lone visit to Japan.

Warcloud has become the subject of much recent debate due to the sudden change in his rhyme style. Although his lyrics are still largely "multi-layered and ultra-detailed", his execution is far more off-beat. This is often referred to as a "free verse pattern" where rhyming is unnecessary and mostly sporadic. In his own words, he names this new rhyme style as "Mixed Forest Zone", whereas his old style was referred to as "Old Jail Pyjama Room". RZA once described Warcloud as crazy and constantly rapping non-stop. 
Fans will also note that Warcloud's lyrics are now littered with an increasing use of cliches, metaphors and references to food, nursery rhymes, fables and other classic tales. Changed his name from Holocaust to avoid any negative backlash from the Jewish community.

2006 Warcloud resurfaced and reclaimed his name as Da Holocaust and working a number of projects. Said to have completed "The Jigsaw Puzzle" some years back but not looking to release it anytime soon.

Westcoast Killa Beez are literally Black Knights and Northstar. However Black Knights have brought their affiliates to the table, and named themselves Westcoast Killa Beez or rather Killa Bee Gang.  A number of West coast solo artists such as Maddam Scheez also use this name or affiliation even though the name is not a group on its own, its a term used to refer to the west coast Wu-tang affiliates especially as they are quite few in number compared to the east coast.

The Westcoast Killa beez are mostely protégés of Black Knights, and first introduced to the world on  "Every Night Is A Black Knight" album, The full list of the group is still not clear, P-Nut is a member of The black Techs, and D. Nichelle is also a member of Stone Mecca. There are groups and solo members within WCKB. 6 Mil seems to be responsible for most of the production, and has worked with the likes of U-God and so on.  Some of the groups have remained active and others not so active.

Killa Bee Gang is a sub-group of the wider Westcoast Killa Beez, KBG are basically those who are affiliated or came in through Black Knights, which rules out the likes of Maddam Scheez, City Officials who came in through Northstar,  P. Dot and so on.

Originally named Crime Syndicate, the group briefly became Wu-Syndicate and comprised of Joe Mafia, Myalansky, and Napolean. Their debut album came out jointly on "Wu-Tang Records" and their own "Slot Time Records". But not long after this, there were reports of a fallout between the group (and one of the main producers, E The Dred) with "Wu-Tang Records" which forced them into another label contract.

The group changed its name to The Syndicate after falling out with the management but reclaimed it again around 2008 and there are talks within the camp of doing more work with The RZA and Divine again. 

The current roster of the group is just Mya and Mafia due to a public fall our with Mya and Napoleon. Joe Mafia still collaborates with Napoleon to date.

Their history and achievements are now infamous. The Clan's influence on hip hop is one of the defining moments in the genre's history and their music style is still imitated today. The 10th official or unofficial member is was  Cappadonna, due to him not being around when the group was formed but in 2007 was officially declared a member of the group before the release of 8 diagrams. La The Darkman has called himself the 11th member on tracks, and fans have debated between Killah Priest and Streetlife.
