Allah Real was specifically part of the mentorship of DJ Mathematics, producer and organizer for Wu-Tang’s The Saga Continues album last October. Mathematics mourned his teacher’s passing online.
“I grew up under this brother to the point where I was able to [see] eye to 3rd eye with my equal making him my Brother through [trials] and tribulations. He was a teacher a Master Builder, Great God and an amazing singer,” writes Math’, with a music video clip of the vocalist singing.
