U-God (born Lamont Jody Hawkins, 1970) – A founding member with his own solo career, U-God’s has had a relatively low profile, in part due to his limited exposure, from being incarcerated for most of the recording of 36 Chambers, in which he only delivered short verses on “Da Mystery of Chessboxin'” and “Protect Ya Neck.” He is known for delivering strong verses, his unique “bass-like” voice, and his style of blaxploitation rap.
