The majority of the hip-hop community first encountered Wu-Tang Clan in the early 1990s, and they witnessed the group’s rise to fame both collectively and individually. RZA pulled together the storied throng of emcees who each contributed—and do so still—in their own special way. It’s one of the factors contributing to their widespread popularity and reputation as one of hip-most hop’s esteemed ensembles.
The legendary group has put in a lot of effort over the course of their 25+ year career to create a legacy through numerous music projects and other undertakings. The members of Wu, who include RZA, GZA (Genius), Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, U-God, Masta Killa, Inspectah Deck, Method Man, Cappadonna, and the late O’l Dirty Bastard, have the following net worths to share.

Cappadonna is regarded as a member of Wu-Tang after contributing verses to numerous albums. He has a variety of solo albums under his belt and performs with the ensemble. His net worth is reportedly estimated to be $4 million by Celebrity Net Worth.
One of the crew’s most well-known members, Ghostface Killah, has more than a dozen solo albums to his credit. He constantly creates music, has appeared in Netflix’s Luke Cage, runs his own store where fans can buy songs, figurines, clothing, and other merchandize, and he once had his own vape product line. His net worth is reportedly between $17 and $20 million, according to a number of publications (including Celebrity Net Worth).
GZA is renowned for his lyrical prowess, and both his solo and Wu-Tang discographies have reached platinum status. With Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts from 2020, he ventured into voice acting. He also also collaborated with a Columbia professor to develop a hip-hop scientific curriculum (according to The New York Times).
The Richest estimates GZA’s net worth to be $18 million.
Inspectah Deck (Jason Hunter), another founding member of the Wu, has a vast musical resume that includes his work with Wu-Tang as a group and as a solo artist. But did you know that he is also a producer who has collaborated with some of the most well-known hip-hop artists?
The versatile Inspectah Deck revealed to CityPages that he invests his money in mutual funds and the stock market in addition to making money through touring and business enterprises associated with Wu and through music publishing, TV and music production, and Wu-affiliated tours. The rapper’s estimated net worth is $14 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
Masta Killa revealed to Forbes that he only contributed one line to Wu-Enter Tang’s the Wu-Tang and that he was a quick scholar of music and business after that. That same year, Masta Killa released his fourth studio album. According to Celebrity Net Worth, Masta Killa is worth about $1 million.
While expanding out into acting, Method Man has had a fruitful rap career both with the group and on his own. He has worked on films, TV shows, and music over the years with Redman (as well as solo), and it has recently been revealed that he will be a cast member of Power Book II: Ghost.
The Cinemaholic estimates that Method Man is worth $20 million and that his influence is still expanding.
Ol’ Dirty Bastard
Ol’ Dirty Bastard, one of Wu-most Tang’s inventive lyricists and charismatic individuals, is missed by all of us. He signed with Roc-A-Fella after leaving the Wu-record Tang’s company not long before he passed away. Along with some of his children, his wife manages his inheritance, and they assisted in the establishment of “Dirty Coin,” a cryptocurrency in his honour.
A biopic is also in the works, claims Complex. ODB’s estate is valued at an undetermined amount; The Richest pegs it at $6 million and Celebrity Net worth at $500,000, respectively.
Along with being a talented rapper, Raekwon Da Chef is also a shrewd businessman. He continues to release solo albums, participate in collaborations, and support Wu collective endeavours. He introduced Licataa Lambrusco, his own sparkling wine line, in 2018. The estimated net worth of Raekown is $13 million.
RZA, who is regarded as the de facto head of the Wu-Tang Clan, not only creates music for the group but also performs in movies and writes, directs, and acts in them. He still has the ability to licence the Wu-Tang name and other intellectual property.
He contributes to soundtracks, collaborates with other musicians, and is a major influence behind Wu-Tang: An American Saga on Hulu, just like many other Wu members. RZA has an estimated net worth of $18 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
U-God—a.k.a. Famously, in 2016, Lamont Hawkins sued Wu-Tang (the company, not his buddies) for unpaid royalties. U-God is regarded as one of the group’s founding members, but as The New Yorker notes, his early musical contributions were limited by his repeated spells in jail and other problems. He gave his all to the Wu-Tang Forever album from 1997.
U-estimated God’s net worth is $5 million, which includes his music endeavours, his novel Raw: My Journey into the Wu-Tang, royalties, and investments.
