Ghostface Killah, is an American rapper and prominent member of the Wu-Tang Clan. After the group achieved breakthrough success in the early- to mid-1990s, each member was free to pursue solo careers. Ghostface Killah took his name from one of the characters in the 1979 kung fu film Mystery of Chessboxing. GFK was raised in the Stapleton Housing Projects in Staten Island, New York.

In his autobiographical song “All That I Got Is You “, Ghost tells the story of his childhood. He raps about how he grew up in a three bedroom apartment without his father who left him at the age of six. Growing up poor he experienced hard living conditions like “Pluckin roaches out the cereal box. ”
He debuted with the rest of the hip hop rap mega group Wu-Tang Clan on their critically acclaimed debut, 1993’s Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). A roommate of Wu-Tang founder The RZA, Ghostface helped bring together the other seven members, and would function as executive producer on all the Wu-Tang Clan releases.

In 1995, Ghostface would guest star extensively on fellow hip hop Clan member Raekwon’s debut album, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx…, appearing on almost every song. He also contributed songs to the Sunset Park and Don’t Be A Menace To South Central While Drinking Your Juice In The Hood soundtracks, which would be included on his first solo LP, Ironman, in 1996. The album, which debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200, had a more pronounced soul influence (particularly 1970s soul) than previous Wu-Tang releases, and Ghostface’s future albums would continue this stylistic trait.
Ghostface became well-known for both his up-tempo, seemingly indecipherable stream-of-conscious hip hop rap and, later in his career, for his emotionally charged raps and his smooth constant flow. In 1996 he would discover that he was diabetic, a condition that would severely weaken his health. According to “Trials of Life “, a 2007 song with fellow New York rapper Prodigy (himself a sickle-cell anemic), Ghostface assumed he had been stricken by a sexually transmitted disease until he received the diabetes diagnosis. This assumption was brought on by a rapid weight loss he experienced and that he had “hit it raw aplenty “.
