RZA Biography

Robert Fitzgerald Diggs, to the audience known by a stage name of RZA, is a famous American record producer, rap artist, film score composer, as well as an entrepreneur. RZA is perhaps best known as one of the members, and a leader of a popular hip hop group called “The Wu-Tang Clan”, which includes such rappers as Method Man, GZA, Ghostface Killah, Cappadonna, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Inspectah Deck, U-God, Masta Killa and Raekwon. Considered to be one of the best hip hop groups in the industry, “Wu-Tang Clan” helped many of its members gain public recognition and commercial success. The group debuted in 1993, with the release of “Enter Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)”, their very first studio album, which helped the genre of hardcore hip hop establish itself in the music industry. It also influenced the rise of New York hip hop style, which was also adopted by such artists as Notorious B.I.G, Nas, and Jay-Z. Included in the list of “500 Greatest Albums of All Time”, “Wu-Tang Clan’s” debut album is truly an inspirational and influential work, which gave rise to a string of solo albums released by the members of the group. RZA was one of the very first of the group to create his own side project called “Gravediggaz”, a hip hop group that featured Prince Paul, Too Poetic and Frukwan. The group released their debut album entitled “6 Feet Deep” in 1994, which eventually became one of the most influential horrorcore albums in the history. This inspired Method Man to release his own solo work entitled “Tical”, which was followed by Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s “Return to the 36 Chambers: The Dirty Version”. A famous rap artist, how rich is RZA? According to sources, RZA’s net worth is estimated to be $18 million. RZA accumulated most of his net worth and wealth due to his rapping career.

RZA was born in 1969, in Brooklyn, New York. A troublesome teenager, who got in trouble for drug dealing, and even was charged with an attempted murder, RZA took to hip hop as a way of dealing with his issues. Before he founded “Wu-Tang Clan”, RZA was a member of another group called “All in Together Now”, with which he had moderate success among the local audience. RZA then singed a record deal with “Tommy Boy Records” and shortly afterwards created the “Wu-Tang Clan” group. Even though RZA is best known as a rap artist, he also proved himself to be a talented actor, as well as a director. RZA made his film debut in a 1999 crime action film directed by Jim Jarmusch called “Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai”, where he co-starred alongside Forest Whitaker. Ever since then, RZA had been featured in such films as “American Gangster” with Russell Crowe and Denzel Washington, “Funny People” starring Adam Sandler, Leslie Mann and Seth Rogen, and a short-lived television series entitled “Gang Related”. In addition to that, RZA directed a martial arts film “The Man with the Iron Fists” starring Russell Crowe and Lucy Liu, and co-produced a remake of a 1985 film entitled “The Last Dragon”.
