Before the Wu-Tang Clan was signed by Loud Records (then a subsidiary of RCA Records), the many-membered crew would cycle through RZA's place, as he laid down beats behind each artist's rhymes.

The Wu put out their first single with "Protect Your Neck" on the A side, and first "Tearz" and then "Method Man" on the B side.
