WC

Biography

William Loshawn Calhoun, Jr. (born August 9, 1970), better known by his stage name WC (pronounced "Dub-C"), is an American rapper. He was born in Houston, Texas, but moved to South Central Los Angeles at an early age. He originally was a rapper in the group Low Profile, and later formed his group WC and the Maad Circle, who first succeeded with the single "Curb servin'". He later started a solo career and has released four solo albums. He is also well known for being a member of the rap supergroup Westside Connection.

A longtime staple of the gangsta rap scene, WC began his career with the group Low Profile. The group released one album called We're in This Together in 1989. He later formed his group WC and the Maad Circle, which also included fellow rapper & mentor Big Gee, Coolio, producer Sir Jinx and DJ Crazy Toones. He released two albums with his group, Ain't a Damn Thang Changed in 1991 and Curb Servin' in 1995.

His solo debut The Shadiest One followed in 1998, landing in the pop Top 20 in its first week of release. "Better Days" and "Just Clownin'" were moderate R&B hits, and his second record, 2002's Ghetto Heisman, entered the pop charts as well. In 2007, he released his third solo album, Guilty by Affiliation on Lench Mob Records. Ice Cube, Snoop Dogg, and Game all made an appearance on his album Guilty by Affiliation. He released his fourth solo album, Revenge of the Barracuda, on March 8, 2011. The album has featured guests like Ice Cube, Young Maylay, Daz Dillinger and Kokane.
