U-God Talks Debut As Inspectah Deck Hops Aboard Family Values

With a flurry of solo releases from members of the Staten Island's favorite karate-chopping hip-hop crew, including Ol' Dirty Bastard, Method Man (with non-Clan member Redman), and Inspectah Deck, this fall is turning out to be the Season Of The Wu.

Wu-Tang fans have further reason to venture to record stores on Tuesday, as U-God releases his debut solo album, "Golden Arms Redemption." The MC sounded like a proud parent when he announced his LP's arrival to MTV News.
