In the era of Slaughterhouse, Black Hippy, Run The Jewels, CZARFACE and others, Heads are used to super-groups. One super-group that never got the shine they deserved is the Deadly Venoms (aka 5 Deadly Venoms). Not to be confused with the amazing Diamond D/D.I.T.C. posse cut from ’97, this was a Wu-Tang spin-off clique that contained N-Tyce (who introduced Method Man on “The Hush Hush Tip”), Lin Que (aka Isis) of X-Clan fame, and Finesse (of Finesse & Synquis), and Atlantic Records alum Champ, as well as J-Boo. Working with Wu, 40 Glocc and Tekitha over the years, the Venoms—although shelved by A&M Records for reasons unknown should not be forgotten—by real Heads.
