Inspectah Deck was born in Brooklyn but grew up in Staten Island, where he went to the high school with Method Man, Raekwon, and Ghostface Killah, with whom he would later perform in Wu-Tang Clan. Deck had a rough childhood in the Park Hill Projects in Clifton, Staten Island, after his father died when he was six, and his mother supported the family by herself.
Inspectah Deck co-founded the Wu-Tang Clan in 1992, along with RZA, U-God, GZA, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, Method Man and Masta Killa, and the group went on to record seven studio albums, and sell more than 40 million copies worldwide.

The singles “Method Man”, “C.R.E.A.M.”, and “Can It Be All So Simple” were among the most popular song on the album, and hit the charts in the US.
In 1997, Wu-Tang released the double album called “Wu-Tang Forever”, which achieved 4x platinum status and is their best-selling album to date. It topped the US Billboard 200, UK Albums, US Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums, and Canadian Albums (Billboard) charts, and received a Grammy nomination for Best Rap Album in 1998.
