“The hundred-dollar kick rockin’ kid’s back for more.” The lyrics speak for themselves as the iconic, multi-alias, Wu-brother, wordsmith, Ghostface Killah is once again gracing microphones and stages across America. As the emcee that exploded onto the scene with the fist verse off Bring Da Ruckus, the first track off of the first Wu-Tang album Enter the Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers, it was almost destined that Ghostface would soon become one of the most notorious, feared, and respected emcees of all time. The stream of conscious and loud, fast paced flow was relatively unheard of at first but later became the staple and unmatched rhyming style that would be recognized by all.
In addition to his unique and evolutionary style, he has garnered critical acclaim for almost every avenue in the music industry. Ranked in many respected lists as one of the top 50 emcees of all time and of the greatest story tellers, he has numerous solo albums that pushed the envelope and truly helped hiphop reach its height. Being apart of the Wu-Tang Clan, Tony Starks aka Ironman aka Ghostdini aka Theodore aka Dennis Coles was apart of an industry changing landmark deal that gave Wu members the option of signing solo deals with different record labels while being signed the full group to a separate. with this, Ghostface went on to create his own label “Starks Enterprises.”
Ghostface Killah will be making his way to the Regent Theater on March 8th and is 100% sure to be a performance that you won’t want to miss. His stage presence and energy is unparalleled yet is only a by-product to his aggressive and maze-like rhyme style. Throw your W’s up and bounce to the rhythm that truly embodies hiphop and what it means to be an emcee, rapper, performer and entertainer.
