The Gravediggaz were comprised of RZA, Frukwan, Too Poetic (R.I.P.) and producer Prince Paul. They were the first true offshoot group to be loosely-affiliated with the Clan. They did this by way of Bobby Digital's inclusion in the crew, but their music was nothing like anything else the Wu was making at the time.

Their first album, 6 Feet Deep, was built around haunting themes like suicide, murder, demons, the devil, ghosts, and the afterlife. The group's iconic first single, "Diary of a Madman," with its spooky melody and grim subject matter, effectively ushered in the horrorcore rap genre. Because when RZA told us he "chewed his fucking arm off and made an escape," it was quite possibly the most shocking thing we'd ever heard.
