Ghostface Killah 

The formidable Wu-Tang rapper performs at The New Parish.

As Method Man put it in an interview clip at the end of Wu-Tang Clan’s “Can It All Be So Simple,” Ghostface Killah is “on some ‘Now you see me, now you don’t.’” Method Man was presumably referring to his collaborator’s dexterous rap flow and ability to seamlessly change between various styles. Since Wu-Tang’s debut album, Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) came out in 1993, Ghostface has cemented himself in rap history as one of the greatest East Coast MCs. His work has spawned countless imitators, including Action Bronson, a younger rapper whose style is so similar to Ghostface’s flow that Ghostface even once mistook Action Bronson’s voice for his own. After a beef between the two artists raged for several years, Action Bronson took to Twitter in 2015 to acknowledge that he was in the wrong for feuding with his elder. Rap beefs notwithstanding, Ghostface has managed to stay prolific since his Wu-Tang days. To promote his latest album, Sour Soul, he performs at The New Parish on December 18 with Oakland rapper Raw-G among other artists.
