Hip-hop titan Ghost­face Kil­lah returns to the UK for the offi­cial launch of his GHOST­FACE KIL­LAHS album.

As one of the lead­ing swords­men from sem­in­al NYC rap ensemble the Wu-Tang Clan, Ghost­face is widely seen as one of the greatest MCs ever to bless the mic: his intric­ate word­play cre­at­ing and con­jur­ing vivid stor­ies from the grit­ti­er side of street life in New York’s Long Island and beyond.

Ghostface’s first solo EP did not come about until 1996, four years after he found fame in the Wu-Tang clan. The EP was entitled ‘Iron­man’ and deb­uted at the num­ber two spot on the Bill­board 200 chart, a bril­liant achieve­ment. The album pos­sessed a dis­tinct­ive soul style that would con­tin­ue to fea­ture on many of Ghostface’s songs.

Ghost­face Killah’s most crit­ic­ally acclaimed albums are his 2000 ven­ture ‘Supreme Cli­en­tele’ and his 2006 album ‘Fish­s­cale’. He is par­tic­u­larly well known for his dis­tinct­ive music­al style: he is praised for his loud, fast paced flow and his emo­tion­al free style rap­ping which often con­tains cryptic slang.

He was hon­oured in 2006 by MTV when they placed him on their list of The Greatest MCs of All Time and again by the edit­ors of About.com when he was placed on their list of the Top 50 MCs of Our Time.

Ghost­face Killah’s Ghost­face Kil­lahs is an album that gives us a taste of the hard­core hip-hop pion­eered in the east coast by the Wu-Tang Clan. This will be a show to remember.
