Blue Raspberry

BLUE RASPBERRY Former Wu-Tang Vocalist

Since 1994 Blue Raspberry has been the incredible voice behind the Wu-Tang Clan. A killer songstress who can hold her own with her voice, Blue Raspberry has always been a back-up stylist who could steal the spotlight from any Clansmen on a track. Her timeless vocals have been featured on numerous classic tracks including “Heaven & Hell,” and “Rainy Dayz,” from the multi-platinum selling Only Built For Cuban Linx. She mysteriously added a melodic flavor to the harsh realities of the world. Her impressive introduction to the world she continued to solidify her spot as Hip Hop’s premier female vocalist gracing tracks with operatic and soulful vocals like no one in this industry could dare do. She would go on to secretly write, arrange and produce (without being properly credited) much of the music she worked with RZA during her Wu days. Blue landed her first solo single “It’s Time” on the gold selling Don’t Be A Menace To South Central While Drinking Your Juice In The Hood soundtrack. After her many years of being pigeonholed she left the Clan amidst broken promises and missing monies. In 2005 she independently released her solo debut Out Of The Blue. She continues to tour constantly while she records for her Gemini album.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
