The Wu-Tang Clan's Ghostface Killah will be coming to 2720 Cherokee on Saturday, April 27. Joining him will be a ten-piece band, Adrian Younge's Venice Dawn.
Here's what RFT Music writer Gun Gray had to say before Ghostface's 2006 appearance at Pop's:
Ghostface Killah -- a.k.a. Tony Starks, the man who once described God as his bodyguard -- is the only Wu-banger who's consistently kept the fire burning. What other Wu member has had not one, but five slamming solo albums [Editor: Now TEN, still slammin']? Ghostface has been able to successfully straddle both underground and mainstream hip-hop by keeping himself and his fans on their toes. He's formed his own side posse, Theodore Unit, has appeared on countless compilations, and has even teamed up with underground producers like MF Doom and Prefuse 73.
Ghostface's upcoming new album, entitled Twelve Reasons to Die, is presented by Adrian Younge, so the live collaboration is no surprise and will likely mean attendees will get a chance to check out some of the new material live. The album drops April 16. Check out a track from the project below:
