News of Big Boi joining the Zulu Nation was made public by Q-Tip, who previously revealed that Lil Wayne was a new member, via Twitter.
Additionally, Quadeer “M.C. Spice” Shakur, Zulu Nation’s Minister Of Information, shared with AllHipHop.com that Nas is now a Zulu Nation member and Jimmy Fallon has become an honorary member.
“The Tonight Show” host serves as one of the first entertainers to join the newly announced, Honorary Zulu chapter.
Following the announcement that Lil Wayne would be joining the Zulu Nation, producer 9th Wonder released a statement addressing those who criticized the organization’s decision to recruit the rapper.
“Dwayne Carter, also known to the world as Lil Wayne, is a member and an Ahki (which means ‘brother’) in the Universal Zulu Nation founded in 1973 by Afrika Bambaataa—a former gang member of the Black Spades,” 9th Wonder said. “This decision was made by Zulu King Q-Tip (of A Tribe Called Quest) and Zulu King 9th Wonder. Deal with it.”
