Ghostface Killah 'Ironman' 2xLP
Sony Music and Get On Down proudly present the official reissue of the debut solo album from Wu-Tang Clans’s Ghostface Killah. Released in 1996 on Epic Records, Ironman earned immediate mainstream success, debuting at number two on the Billboard 200 chart, and number one on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.Though a solo album, Ironman is filled with Wu-Tang collabos, prominently featuring Raekwon and Cappadonna, with a handful of tracks featuring Ghost performing companionless. The album earned gold status in sales a year after its release and platinum by 2004, a true testament to its staying power.
Ironman pieces together Al Green and Jackson 5 samples, gospel choruses, kung fu soundbites and piano vamps into something unpredictable and vital-sounding. Arguably the best of the group’s solo albums to date, the record is filled with inventive production and rhymes, and ranks as another solid entry in the Wu-Tang legacy. Housed in a full-color gatefold jacket, this special double vinyl edition includes an 18” x 24” replica of the original retail poster. A classic piece of Wu-Tang artistry is reborn again for music lovers and MC’s alike.
