Wu-Tang Clan affiliate and mentor, Freedom "Popa Wu" Allah, has passed away at the age of 63. As the news broke yesterday, Wu-Tang Clan members and other music peers alike began paying tribute on social media.

The older cousin of Wu-Tang's RZA, Popa Wu had appeared on several songs over the years, including Ghostface Killah's "All That I Got Is You," as well as the Clan's Hulu series, Wu Tang: An American Saga. He was also related to Ol' Dirty Bastard and GZA.
