Inspectah Deck and Allah Mathematics offer a retrospective on the genesis of Wu-Tang Clan and their iconic emblem in this episode of Back & Forth from NOISEY. Allah Mathematics – DJ and producer for the legendary group – designed the logo and recounts the phone call he received from RZA asking for help with the design that would go on to become one of the most recognizable symbols in pop culture over the past two decades. Allah and Deck also discuss the group’s evolution from an apartment on Staten Island to the world stage – a journey that has allowed the members of the collective to touch lives and make new friends despite language barriers and find devoted fans in some unexpected places. Peep the video below for first installment of Back & Forth featuring Inspectah Deck and Allah Mathematics. Stay tuned for more Wu wisdom in the second installment of their one-on-one interview.
