Born: Robert Diggs on July 5, 1969 in Brownsville, Brroklyn, NY.
The Wu-Tang Clan's chief producer, RZA (aka the Abbott, Prince Rakeem, the Rzarector, and Bobby Steels) was born Robert Diggs; he first surfaced during the early '90s as a member of the rap unit All In Together Now, a group which also featured fellow Wu-Tang members The Genius (aka GZA) and Ol'Dirty Bastard. Following All In Together Nnow's dissolution, he signed to Tommy Boy under the name Prince Rakeem, issuing the 1991 EP Ohh We Love Rakeem before joining The Wu-Tang; the group's 1993 debut, Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), was one of the most influential hip-hop records of the era, with RZA's lean, menacing production work much imitated throughout the rap community in the years to follow. In addition to remaining a member of the loose-knit Wu-Tang family and producing many of the group members' solo efforts, RZA also joined The Gravediggaz, helming their 1995 debut 6 Feet Deep; his first full-length solo LP, RZA as Bobby Digital In Strereo, followed in 1998. In 1999, RZA Hits, a compilation of some of the Wu-Tang family's best-known tracks, from both group and solo projects, was released under RZA's name. Ghost Dog: The Way Of The Samurai, his soundtrack for the Jim Jarmusch film, was released in 2000. One year later, he released his second Bobby Digital record, Digital Bullet. A mix album, The World According To RZA, followed in 2003, as did his third official solo album, The Birth of A Prince.
RZA - RZA as Bobby Digital in Stereo (1998)
RZA's first solo album, the soundtrack to a film involving experimental self-transformation, has many of the same fractured strings and crisp, staccato beats he made trademarks on Wu-Tang Clan recordings. In fact, this could well be a Wu-Tang album,
even more so than the legion of other related albums. The only contributors to the project are Wu members (Method Man, Ol'Dirty Bastard, Ghostface Killah, U-God, Inspectah) or relatives (Killarmy, Masta Killa, Sunz of Man). Bobby Digital in Stereo is also a more focused work than the last Wu-Tang Clan album (Forever), and just a bit more diverse. Though the hooks aren't as big and the raps aren't as upfront, this is a producer's album, designed to showcase RZA's talents in the control room, not in front of the mic.
