Happy Birthday to Ghostface Killah! The New York-native turns 41 today (May 9).

Since the Wu-Tang's inception and collective debut album, Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), Ghostface has developed a massive following through his own stellar solo efforts and of course, participation in subsequent Wu-Tang members' solo projects. From his 1996 platinum debut Ironman, to 2000's epic Supreme Clientele to last year's critically acclaimed Apollo Kids, Ghost has more classic albums than most rappers have singles.
