Some info about Remedy:
Remedy is a white rapper who is part of the Wu-Tang Clan crew (but not a member of the actual rap group). Born in 1972 as Ross Filler in Staten Island, NY, he began writing songs and poems at the age of seven, and by high school, was performing as a rapper at local shows. Filler (around this time known as Remedy) began recording demos at Northshore Soundworks, the home of such rap luminaries as EPMD, Das EFX, and Redman. After striking up a friendship with Wu-Tang Clan member RZA, Remedy's track "Never Again" (a track inspired by the rapper's Jewish roots and the holocaust) appeared on the hit Wu 1998 release, The Swarm. Remedy's debut album, The Genuine Article, appeared in April of 2001, produced entirely by the rapper himself and mixed by RZA. A year later, Code Red arrived in November, including a track that offered his personal viewpoint on the terrorist hijacking of September 11th, 2001.
Here is an album review for The Genuine Article by Jason Birchmeier:
Not your traditional Wu Tang affiliate, Remedy showcases exactly why RZA and company went out of their way to hook up with a white Jewish rapper. First of all, Remedy isn't just a rapper; he's also an equally skilled producer, crafting nearly every beat on this album. Secondly, he doesn't rely on the extended Wu family to carry his album; there are actually a minimum of guest rappers here, giving Remedy plenty of time to explore a number of viable topics. Finally, this guy seems to really instill a lot of emotion into his music; both his rhymes and his beats are obviously labored, and his delivery is equally passionate. So, in short, Genuine Article has the makings of a great debut album. This guy is a real talent and not a brand extension like many of the other Wu Tang affiliates. Sometimes his lyrical agendas can get a little heavy-handed but, for the most part, there's not a lot to complain about here; this is how a debut rap album should sound.
