In 1990, the Hip Hop generation was introduced to a new era of music via the X-Clan. With the tragic passing of hip hop cultural leader Professor X in March 2006, the message of X-Clan and the Blackwatch Movement is being carried forward by his protege, Brother J, X-Clan’s co-founder and spokesman.

Led by Brother J, the Clan’s founder and original lead MC, X-Clan are ready again to move your mind, body and spirit like back in the day, as one of the most powerful and influential hip hop crews Hip Hop has ever witnessed, have returned after nearly a decade-long hiatus. 

Moving forward, Brother J, Ultraman Ra Hanna, ACL, DJ FatJack, Kumu M. Haynes, Master China and Grand Arkutect Paradise will carry forward the message into the next generation of X-Clan with the release of Return From Mecca, which will be released on 10-31-06 and finds the group reforming their groundbreaking tradition of displaying ancestral wisdom, culture and a signature lyrical style that appeals to all generations of Hip Hop. 

X-Clan’s new LP also marks the group’s debut for hip hop and underground tastemakers Suburban Noize Records.

Making its debut in 1990 with, To The East Blackwards, and with there 1992 sophomore effort, Xodus, (both of which are considered classics and peaked at #11 on the hip hop charts) X-Clan was at the forefront of hip hop’s cultural movement. 

With hits like “Funkin'' Lesson,” “Heed The Word of the Brother” and “Raise The Flag,” X-Clan secured hip hop as their vehicle to deliver and advance the science and math of upliftment, popularizing the ideas of Malcolm X, Sonny Carson, Huey Newton and Clarence 13X, while keeping dance floors packed.
