Iron Age: The Art of Ghostface Killah
Dean Van Nguyen
In the beginning, he was one of nine—the Wu-Tang Clan’s first swordsman. But much more than just 11.11% of a greater entity, Ghostface Killah established himself as a seminal rapper in hip-hop history and one of the greatest artists to skulk the planet. In a series of essays that blend music criticism, cultural examination, and personal appreciation, Dean Van Nguyen examines every side of Ghost’s bionic make-up. This essential collection is for students of East Coast rap, comic book culture, grindhouse cinema, and New York history. Most of all, it’s for fans of the almighty Ghostface Killah, one of the most thrilling, fascinating rappers of our time.
