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 Yorks Long Island and beyond.
Ghostfaces first solo Album did not come about until 1996, four years after he found fame in the Wu-Tang clan. The Album 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 Ghostfaces songs.
Ghostface Killahs 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 freestyle 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.
