Hi, and I hope you're having a great Easter weekend!
Candi Lindsey, aka Blue Raspberry, is a name that you may or may not know, but I'd guess that you recognize her voice. She was Wu's first female vocalist and her voice made some of Wu Tang solo albums sound even grimier (but with a feminine touch).. in fact she is on many of my favorite songs which wouldn't be the same without her.
Before laying down vocals on some of the dopest rap out there, she was a parking lot cashier at a Bally's in New Jersey. Wu Tang was there for a convention and heard her singing over a loudspeaker and a wonderful match was made.
Wu Tang, meet Blue Raspberry:



Oh and it gets better



She's done some other great songs after these (and one, unreleased, track with Biggie, KRS, OC, Raekwon in 1995. man I'd love to hear that one!)
Here she is on Raekwon's Cuban Linx II:

and on the Ghost Dog soundtrack:

She did a song with Apathy here:


Apathy helped her produce this song:


I am so glad that Wu heard Blue Raspberry by chance and had the innovative idea to bring her in to do vocals with them. She really brought something special to the songs she was on, and her voice was perfect for Wu!

Have a great weekend!
Thank you for reading. Do you agree that the above Wu songs were made even doper by Blue Raspberry's vocals?

I had a lot of fun studying up for this thread!

Ultimately, I was trying to figure out if Wu was the first to use live female vocals vs. samples but I didn't get that far (yet).

Thanks for stopping in!

Memory Lane is a path I travel frequently, lol.
Especially when it comes to great, innovative music, movies, art etc.
