Back then they 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. Shortly after, Shabazz left the group to pursue a solo career and 7th Ambassador retired from the rap game altogether. The Sunz Of Man are a part of the United Kingdom group, and have many close Wu affiliates including Trebag, Timbo King and Dreddy Kruger. For a more comprehensive Sunz biography, click here.

Tekitha was the main vocalist on the second clan album, Wu-Tang Forever, she provided the hook for 'Impossible' and even had a solo track entitled 'The Second Coming' which was an alteration of the classic 'McArthurs Park' by Richard Harris.

-Two Da Road-
aka: 2 On A Role
Duo comprising of the unlikely pairing between 12 O'Clock and Prodigal Sunn. Two Da Road have made a number of radio appearances and reports suggest that they have recorded a substantial amount of tracks for a planned album.
Neither an MC nor a producer. Uncle Pete's role within the Wu-Fam seems to be only that of a preacher or mentor. He can be heard on the track "Wu-Revolution" on "Wu-Tang Forever".
aka: UK, Population Click
Perhaps the most mysterious aspect of this group are its members. A lot of speculation has taken place on who exactly is part of the United Kingdom. Originally they were known as Population Click (with a very large contingent of MC's), but their present roster is still unclear. The most conclusive one to date lists these groups (in capitals) and members: Ace Council, Allah Real, THE BEGGAZ, BLACK ROSE KARTEL, BROOKLYN ZU, COINS, CUFFIE CRIME FAMILY, Don Chulo, Duck Low, Dungeon Masta, I Born, Kendra, Laquan, Lady Raw, Laza-Life, Makeba Mooncycle, 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. They are a group from Africa and was cited as being part of United Kingdom by Makeba Mooncycle during an interview. Rumors 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).
aka: Crime Syndicate
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 Wu-Syndicate (and one of the main producers, E The Dred) with "Wu-Tang Records" which forced the group into another label. Wu-Syndicate have now reverted to their original moniker, Crime Syndicate.
Albums: Myalansky & Joe Mafia: Wu-Syndicate (1999)
