Wu-Tang Clan
Wu-Tang Clan
Twenty-five years ago, the Wu-Tang Clan changed hip-hop music forever. Bursting onto the music scene with the release of Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), the group quickly became recognized for its innovative beats and clever lyrics, as well as the diverse personalities and talents that make up its nine member hip-hop group. The Wu Tang Clan has released seven gold and platinum studio albums with worldwide sales of more than 40 million albums. With the release of their debut album in 1993 songs like “C.R.E.A.M and “Protect Ya Neck” introduced hip-hop pioneer, The RZA, as a groundbreaking hip hop craftsman. With lyrics that combine the reality of 1990s New York and the world of martial arts, the Wu-Tang Clan has created a unique mythology that captures the hearts of fans worldwide.

Stone Mecca
As a producer and musician, Stone Mecca’s solidly established a foothold in the worlds of both Hip Hop & R&B. Now, as a solo artist, Stone Mecca has stripped down his production style to its rawest form, creating a gritty love triangle between roots rock, blues and funk. On his latest album Alienman, Stone Mecca combines his love of hard-hitting hip hop beats and funk-driven bass lines with grinding guitar riffs and soulful melodies.
The first single from his new album, "If Experience Was Money", was featured on Afropunk.com, remarking that "The electric vibes of… Stone Mecca and his old school cool are lustfully intoxicating." His second single, "Boogeyman" recently premiered on Billboard.com. A talented multi-instrumentalist, Stone Mecca wrote, produced and played all the instruments on every track. And Stone Mecca’s live set, with a tight, energetic 5-piece band packs the walls with a titanic sound.

Easily navigating through an array of musical genres, this multi-instrumentalist has put his stamp on soundtracks for Django Unchained, The Man with the Iron Fist, Friday, Blade: Trinity, Soul Plane, Repo Men, Afro Samurai and Afro Samurai Resurrection. He’s also appeared on albums for such artists as Wu-Tang, RZA as Bobby Digital, Kanye West, Ice Cube, Westside Connection, and Snoop Dogg. On his 2007 debut album First Contact, which featured the critically acclaimed soul song “A Walk,” OkayPlayer remarked, “In a fair world, music like this would be present all the time on prime time rotation in various radio markets.”

Stone Mecca has performed live with Earth, Wind & Fire, in the studio with George Clinton, on the road with Wu-Tang Clan, and whenever RZA performs live, he often shares stage billing with Stone Mecca and his band. Says RZA, “Stone Mecca gives us a modern day example of what heart and soul music is.”

A self taught musician, Stone Mecca honed his craft by listening to artists like Jimi Hendrix, BB King, Parliament and Funkadelic, Al Green, Prince, and Earth, Wind & Fire. “Music is my comfort zone, my vice, my drug of choice. I even named my guitar - I call her Eloise and she’s like my other woman. I love her unconditionally and when I perform, I give her everything I have.”
