i was just askin me this question maybe its stupid i dont know but each wu member has a name with a explanation behind it like

rza - scratch sound of his name
gza - scratch genius
odb - cause theres no father to his style
Inspectah deck - because he observes people and takes them to court
ghost - kungfu film character
masta - also
ugod - because hes a god
capadonna - because hes a don who drives a cap
methodman - because hes the weedman

but what the hell is "Raekwon"? how did he come up with such a nonsensical name?

he's the Chef, cos he always cookin up that marvelous shit.

Lex Diamonds - fat iced out rolex maybe ?? it was Lou Diamonds, i'm sure i read he got it off a bottle of Crystal, Louis Rodier or something, because it was the expensive shit and it sparkled.

but Shallah Rakwon i dont know, maybe through 5% teachings or whatever he decided that Corey Woods was his slave name & Shallah Raekwon is his real name ?? same with Method Man, slave name Clifford Smith, real name Shaquan, and & Rza is Rakeem right ?? iono, thats they way i always figured it to be, i could be wrong, probably am, but hey, its a thought.

oh and Method Man is a kung fu movie also, and he called that cos its different methods to his madness, did'nt you listen to ALL the skit on 36 Chambers ??

oh , also, again, while i'm here, you WEAR a cap, you don't drive one (unless you count a hub cap), my thought is Cappadonna comes from Cappachino The Don, and i reckon he spliced the 2 words together by accident on a old off the head freestyle tape, thought it sounded good and kept it. again, its just my thought, not a fact.

I always wondered where the name Raekwon came from too. His real name is Corey Woods, so I'm guessin part of Raekwon has something to do with Corey.

Shallah Raekwon...I belive is also a Kung-Fu charater...
And he is a chief too I think.

ODB and Meth's names originate from Kung-Fu movies too

U-God stands for Universal God
