He spent some time in a California jail for violating the terms of his probation, but appeared to be on the right track when suddenly, in October -- with just two months of rehab to go -- he escaped the California facility and spent a month on the run from the law. Fans were shocked when ODB turned up on-stage at the New York record-release party for the Clan 's new album, The W , which was released with considerably less fanfare in November A leaner, more focused collection, The W featured only one track from ODB and pictured Cappadonna as a full-fledged member of the group though he remained unnamed on their official contract with Loud.
ODB managed to exit the club after his surprise performance but was soon captured by police in Philadelphia and extradited to New York to face charges of cocaine possession. In April , he cut a deal with prosecutors that resulted in a sentence of two to four years in state prison, bringing his outlaw saga to a sad end. This time, though, there was no full round of solo projects in between Wu albums; the full group minus ODB assembled for its fourth album, Iron Flag , which was released in December , just one year after its predecessor.
Despite a lot of activity for the various solo projects, Wu-Tang released only a live album, 's Disciples of the 36 Chambers , during the subsequent five years. That document was one of the last places to hear Ol' Dirty Bastard , who died of a heart attack in November In early , in anticipation for the Clan 's upcoming album, 8 Diagrams , Nature Sounds issued the Mathematics -compiled Unreleased , a collection of new remixes and hard-to-find, previously unreleased songs from the group and some of its friends.
It wasn't until the end of the year, however -- after a couple of delays and some criticism from Raekwon and Ghostface directed at RZA regarding the overall sound of the record -- that 8 Diagrams came out. Solo albums from most members would follow, but the Clan itself would remain dormant until , when the Wu -related compilation Legendary Weapons landed with some new tracks from the full group. That year, it was also announced that the Clan were working on a new studio album that would be released in to celebrate their 20th anniversary.
However, the album failed to materialize as came and went, with production stymied by a further public beef between Raekwon and RZA over the new album's stylistic direction. Eventually they reconciled, and in the album was finally finished. That year the Clan also made history with the announcement that they had recorded a secret album called Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, of which only one copy would be pressed and sold as a unique artwork, in a custom-made hand-carved nickel and silver box, to the highest bidder.

They could sign a solo deal with any other company, and take the Wu-Tang name with them. But if I had Old Dirty and Method Man on Def Jam, that's two key pieces going in the same direction, whereas there's other labels that needed to be infiltrated. The RZA's plan was to spread his group's sound as widely as possible.
And just a few years later, members of the Wu-Tang Clan were recording for five of the six major labels, back when there were six major labels. Sales from those albums enriched each label — which meant they saw more potential in hip-hop made by street kids. At Loud, the group's home base, Rifkind was happily taking a chance on a group that had been turned away from his competitors. But the RZA wasn't one for chances. We need somebody up in the office, overseeing what these guys are doing with our records!
And that's not all. He didn't know that, though. Method Man is a rough, rugged street dude, but all the girls love him. The album was called Enter the Wu-Tang: Everything the band had released so far was raw. Members contributed ideas and even some of their own money, but nobody knew how the RZA was going to pull it all together.
He rented time in a Manhattan studio with the then-new editing technology Pro Tools and packed movie clips and old interviews into the music.
They didn't hear it until it was done. Five years after the group signed on to an idea, its followup, Wu-Tang Forever , debuted at No. It shipped 4 million copies in less than six months. I asked the RZA if he actually had a year plan.
I said, 'If we smart, we can plunge at that moment, or we could gracefully make a safe landing to 20 years. Safe is an understatement. The improbable success of the Wu-Tang Clan — their platinum plaques and world tours, alone and together — kicked open the door for other rap groups that wanted to make home-cooked music, for the real people.
