Ghostface Killah (Wu Tang Clan)
Thursday 7 June 2012
The man of many aliases which includes Tony Starks, Ironman & Pretty Toney; Ghostface Killah is a founding member of one of rap’s most influential groups, the Wu-Tang Clan. As the most prolific and productive record maker from the Wu pantheon, Ghostface has had a successful career in his own right. His first solo LP Ironman, which was release in 1996, received platinum certification and hit #2 on the Billboard pop charts. In 2006, Ghostface teamed up with underground artist DOOM to produce several songs for Ghostface's 2006 album Fishscale, which debuted strongly in the #4 position on the U.S. charts and was voted Album of the Year in many notable Hip Hop publications.
With a career spanning 20 years and 16 album releases to-date, Ghostface has become noted for both his up-tempo, stream-of-consciousness rap and, later in his career, for his emotionally charged raps and smooth constant flow. His collaboration roll call includes the likes of the Wu family, Redman, Busta Rhymes, The Game, Black Thought (The Roots), Mary J Blige, Styles P, Jadakiss and many more.
