When we saw Ghostface Killah had a show at the Royal Festival Hall, we copped tickets immediately. Not only is Ghost 1/9 of Wu Tang Clan, he’s also one of the most consistent rappers in the industry. That was evident when he rocked up on stage and performed a five minute Wu Tang medley, running through all the classics, from Ice Cream to C.R.E.A.M.
Many of the verses Ghostface performed weren’t even his own, as he represented for the rest of the iconic group, spitting verses by Raekwon, Inspektah Deck and more. Joined by Killah Priest, there wasn’t a boring moment during the show. Fans were amused by the man they call Tony Starks, even when he simply instructed the lights man to “take off them purple shits” and decorate the room in a red hue.
Even the support acts were incredible, as Piers James and Kojey Radical warmed up fans in the legendary venue prior to Ghostface hitting the stage. Performing with a live band, Kojey put on his best show yet, leaving the audience wondering, “Who the fuck is this guy?!”
Be sure to catch Ghostface Killah next time he touches down in your town.
