He’s one of the most revered identities in the American hip hop scene, as a crucial member of the legendary Wu-Tang Clan. He is Ghostface Killah, and he’s finally heading to Australia for his first ever antipodean tour!

Hailing from New York’s Staten Island, Ghostface took his moniker from the villain in seminal kung-fu film Ninja Checkmate, and early in his career was never be seen without a mask covering his face (so the story goes, he was concealing his identity as he was wanted by the police).

As well as featuring on Wu-Tang’s seminal 1993 album Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), Ghostface has also maintained a healthy career as a solo artist, dropping his first album Iron Man in 1996 and more recently The Big Doe Rehab in 2007.

For his debut visit down under, Ghostface Killah will be joined by fellow Theodore Unit artists Wigs, Trife, Du Lilz and DJ J-Love:
