RZA writes in the book that he once witnessed ODB force his own son to watch him do drugs. RZA tried to leave, he writes, but ODB wouldn’t let him. Now, RZA told CNN, he wishes he would’ve been tougher with ODB about his drug problem.

Method Man, the group’s most recognizable voice, was nearly killed before the band formed, Wu-Tang’s chief producer, RZA, writes in his forthcoming memoir.

Meth was walking to buy marijuana at 160 Park Hill Avenue in Staten Island — the house in Wu-Tang’s “Protect Ya Neck” video — when RZA saw him across the street, he writes in the book.

“Come over here, yo!” RZA beckoned, according to “The Tao of Wu” (Riverhead). “He stopped and came running over. A few seconds later — pow-pow-pow-pow-pow! — a guy started shooting up the front of 160. A buddy of ours, Poppy, an innocent, school-going, nice guy — he was shot and killed right there.”
