Today In Hip-Hop: Ghostface Killah Celebrates His 43rd Birthday

On this day, May 9, in hip-hop history…


The Wu-Tang Clan member has an impeccable career arc, starting from his classic Ironman album to his latest Adrian Younge-produced, Twelve Reasons To Die. The Staten Island native manages to stay in the game through hardwork, continuing to lay down the sharpest bars than any MC. GFK is known as the most consistent rapper and doesn’t look like he’ll be retiring the mic anytime soon.

On top of all his achievements, Ghostface is one of the few rappers out who has been making music for over 20 years. Over that time span, he has dropped amazing guest verses and solo tracks. His styles evolves as he ages and his storytelling abilities just keep getting better. In light of his birthday, rock some gaudy chains and rings for Tony Stark.
