Ghostface Killah to perform at Exit/In on Friday


Braden Barnett

As part of Red Bull’s Sound Select series, Ghostface Killah will perform this Friday, April 7th at Exit/In.

Known for his loud and swift rapping style, Ghostface Killah was one of the most important members of the Wu-Tang Clan, the highly influential rap posse that helped define the East Coast hip-hop scene. He is also known for a string of highly successful, critically acclaimed solo albums, including Ironman (1996), Supreme Clientele (2000), and Fishscale (2006). He is sure to bring his lyrical and storytelling prowess with full force to Nashville.

Supporting Ghostface will be Bronx rapper Kemba. This up-and-coming Kendrick Lamar cosign was endorsed by K-Dot himself and is rumored to appear on his next album. His modern take on East Coast rap will perfectly compliment the old-school mastery brought by Ghostface. Also performing that night will be Minneapolis rapper Greg Grease.

Check out Ghostface’s solo material with “Iron Maiden”, and his famous work on Wu-Tang’s “Impossible”.
