An eruption is about to take place; there is something about Dexter Wiggle that forces one to listen to the man or rather ask "Who is that?". RZA is known for his gift of spotting talents and aligning himself with them, the proof is very evident with the likes of Black Knights, Holocaust, Stone Mecca and over on the East Coast, Sunz of Man, Timbo King, Killarmy, Darkim Be Allah, Reverend William Burke, Suga Bang Bang just to name a few of the hundreds of talented artists, musicians and so on under the Wu family tree that have come through the Abbott to date. Dexter Wiggle is not an exception to this list, in fact, he is a great addition in helping to strengthen and add on to the tree. Lately some fans have been doubting if the Wu is still relevant and the number of bogus and unrelated artists claiming the Wu that are not part of it have watered down the standards associated with such name and affiliation. A breath of fresh air, Dexter brings something exceptionally new and unique to the table with his sing along rapping style that is not very common or resemblance to anyone out there. A well rounded artist who charms the microphone, be it singing, rapping, chanting or whatever with his unique flow, voice, word play and expressions; a skill that RZA noticed and got him involved in a number of projects and albums/. It also goes without saying that Dexter Wiggle is the first and only Killa Bee from the West that has ever been featured on a Wu-Tang album. A feature that is restricted to very few Killa Beez be in East, West or wherever due to the large amount of them, the number of Killa Beez that have ever featured on a Wu-Tang group album is probably not more than 4 including Dexter if not mistaken, now go figure.
Not much is known about Dexter outside the Westcoast Killa Beez gang and within the Wu fans until late. Whilst it would appear Dexter crept out of nowhere, he has been around the music scene for a long time, and met the Black Knights through the great late Doc Doom in their early formation when the Knights were simply known as Dirty Doggz, returning after a couple of years break to find the Dirty Doggz were now Black Knights and signed with Wu-Tang. Few might have missed him on Black Knights' first album "Every Knight Is A Black Knight" on the posse cut "What ya niggaz looking at me for" due to the number of the then new names on there along the Knights and RZA, but he surely couldn't have been missed on his later contributions on Afro Samurai soundtracks 1 and 2 (Resurrection) as well as the latest Bobby Digital "Digi Snacks" and of course his unexpected but relevant feature on Wu-Tang's last album "The 8 diagrams". It is of no suprise fans will be hearing more of him on the upcoming Black Knights' "All Skillz No Luck" album amongst other upcoming projects.
A fan once described Dexter Wiggle as a "Marmite": you either love his music or hate it, and of course there have been forums where fans did not show any keenness to his style, it should however be pointed out that Marmite is nutritious and full of vitamins regardless of how one perceives the taste and can be used in different ways that are beneficially. It is time to find out more about one of the West Coast's best kept secret, find out about the man, his background, aspirations and more on this Wu-International West Coast Killa Beez series. Enter the chambers of Dexter Wiggle because you will surely be hearing more of and from him, Enjoy!!
