Ghostface Killah, born Dennis Coles in NYC, New York, USA, is a prominent American rapper that specialises in hip hop.
As well as being a solo artist, Ghostface is a key member of the hip hop collective, the Wu-Tang Clan. He found his fame and started his career in the successful hip hop group, which consisted of seven members. The members all went solo following the success of the group, although Ghostface continued to collaborate with a lot of his former group. Ghostface’s first solo EP did not come about until 1996, four years after he found fame in the Wu-Tang clan. The EP 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 Ghostface’s songs.
