Ghostface Killah: Ironman (1996). The Wu's Fortress Is Fortified By Iron

Ghostface Killah: Ironman (1996). The Wu's Fortress Is Fortified By Iron

The crew take a look back at Wu Tang Clan crew member Ghostface Killah's debut classic album Ironman. After a four year run of exellence that started with the group's groundshifting debut Enter the 36 Chambers followed up by acclaimed solo releases by various group members, the release by the proclaimed Pretty Tone aka Tony Starks was the final solo release from a group member before the groups second album, Forever, in 1997.

Backed my soulful, but at times gritty beats, Ghostface showcases his witty yet entertaining flow packed equally with a stream of consciousness vibe and acerbic lyrical darts. He was also joined by his fellow Wu-Tang brethren, most notaby by Raekwon, who would feature prominently on Ironman as Ghostface did on Only Built 4 Cuban Linx. It would go on to debut at #2 on the Billboard 200 and go platinum, serving as Ghostface's best selling album to date.
