Ghostface Killah rose to fame as a founding member of the hip-hop collective Wu-Tang Clan. As Wu-Tang members began their solo careers in the mid 90s, Ghostface's would turn out to be one of the most critically and commercially successful of the group, regardless of, and perhaps due to, his loyalty to his obscure yet highly vivid lyrics and 70s soul sound. He's touring behind his sixth studio effort, 'More Fish.' Ask any serious emcee who their influences are, and without a doubt, Rakim Allah will be high on the list. An intelligent and incredibly skilled microphone fiend, there are very few artists who have had the impact and influence as The R. Inspired by golden era legends like KRS-One and Rakim, Brother Ali began rapping as a means of survival. Ali has shared stages with the likes of Atmosphere, Brand Nubian, Rakim, MF Doom and Murs throughout the U.S., Canada, Europe, Japan, South Korea, Australia and New Zealand. And he hasn't been limited to playing clubs and concert halls as he has participated in renowned music festivals like Coachella, Sweeden's Hultsfred and the Eurokeenes Festival in France.
