About the author (2007)

As one of the original members of the seminal 90s rap crew the Wu-Tang Clan, Ghostface Killah made an impact before he released his debut album, "Ironman", late in 1996. Like all members of the Wu-Tang Clan, the rapper used the group as a launching pad for a successful solo career and "Ironman" debuted at number two on the pop chart. His work with Wu-Tang continues, as does his solo career. His 2006 album "Fishscale" was a top ten hit and on many top ten lists for album of the year.
