Wu-Tang Clan’s very own Ghostface Killah is ready to drop his own life story, joining the growing list of hip-hop OGs who are sharing their tales with the world.
Ghostface, the man with the iron lungs and the poetic flow, is set to release his memoir, “Rise of a Killah,” (Pan Macmillan) on May 14, 2024.
The book promises to be a deep dive into the life of one of hip-hop’s most enigmatic figures, taking us from his early days in Staten Island all the way to his reign as a Wu-Tang Clan legend.
“Rise of a Killah” is billed as a “visual record and a real-feel narrative of a performer’s life,” offering a glimpse into the world that shaped Ghostface’s unique style and perspective.
It’s another addition to the growing library of Wu-Tang Clan literature, following in the footsteps of U-God’s “Raw: My Journey Into the Wu-Tang Clan” (2018) and Raekwon’s “From Staircase to Stage: The Story of Raekwon and the Wu-Tang Clan” (2021).
These, along with RZA’s philosophical musings in books like “The Wu-Tang Manual,” provide a rich tapestry of insights into the group’s formation, creative process, and enduring impact on hip-hop culture.
