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.
