So who are the Yellow Jackets? Why was Christ Bearer screaming out the group's name on almost every sentence on our last interview? Prior to publishing the Christ Bearer's Yellow Jackets Interview, the fans were already writing and asking about the group due to their 'out of nowhere' impressive double contribution to the new Killa Beez compilation; The Swarm Part 3: Pollen. Labeled as RZA's newest group and the newest Wu-Tang movement , all that was known up until now was that the group consisted of 11 to 13 members, which was lead by the likes of already known Wu-Tang affiliates; Armel The Great, Christ Bearer and Meko The Pharaoh. Armel, a one time protégé of GZA/Genius belonged to the group known as C.O.I.N.s (Ancient Coins), which was part of the Wu family tree then known as United Kingdom (Population Click) that housed the likes of Sunz of Man, Royal Fam, Brooklyn Zu, Daddy Rose, Makeba Mooncycle and more. Christ Bearer and Meko on the other hand are collectively known as Northstar and were the first ever West Coast Killa Beez singed under The RZA alongside the Black Knights (Crisis, Warcloud, Doc Doom and Rugged Monk), which were initially put together as Black Knights of the Northern Star. What about the other members of the group the fans are not familiar with? With 13 members it will be a long and probably an exhausting read to breakdown all the members this very minute, however Wu-International linked up with one of the members to connect the dots outside what we already know with the DJ, Mc and producer known as $paceman. Part of the extended Black Knights family tree, $paceman has been doing his thing for a while and quickly gaining recognition with his varied style best described as Los Angeles streets meets lyrical with a touch of grime. $paceman gained more respect within the Wu and others when he stopped Slaughterhouse (Yes Joe Budden's group) from rushing the stage at the 2009 Rocks the Bells concert. Deescalating the situation and keeping the show on course, it was evident then that this artist, entrepreneur and business man was a family man first and rider for the Killa Beez movement.
As can been seen, Yellow Jackets is more than just West meets East, or Northstar meets COINs, It is all Wu or New Wu as it comes, Wu within Wu, how did Armel from New York link up with Northstar and other members to form the Yellow Jackets? what about the other members of Yellow Jackets? who are they, where are they from? how did they all connect? why did RZA see the need to bring together another group with this capacity of members? what is the meaning of Yellow Jackets?
The answer to these questions have been partially answered in the first interview and everything else answered on this exclusive interview with $paceman. Fans were pleased with what they heard from the songs released already, the buzz around the group is growing as they have been touring and recording with creating more buzz. A new movement has been born, a movement that is needed in a time like this, a collective of a-alikes coming together under the "W" for one common cause with different styles and approach to it. In continuation with West Coast Killa Beez series, find out why $paceMan, Armel the great, J Justice, 2Real, Ram, 1Man, Voodou, ChristBearer, Meko, Skratch, Shaddow, Surpreme, and General Jihad are called Yellow Jackets and why they are relevant in today's game.
