I try to pace my life out and try not to be too involved with negativity and try to fix what I can fix in my life. And that’s it.
Ghostface Killah

The most prolific and productive record-maker in the Wu-Tang Clan pantheon, Def Jam core artist Ghostface Killah has completed his 16th career album – and his 6th solo album for Def Jam – APOLLO KIDS, set to arrive in stores on December 21st. In addition to guest appearances by Wu-Tang Clansmen Raekwon, GZA, Method Man, and Cappadonna, APOLLO KIDS also boasts star turns by Redman, Busta Rhymes, Sheek Louch, The Game, Jim Jones, and many more.

APOLLO KIDS is – amazingly – Ghost’s third original studio project in just over one year.  It follows up his previous solo album, The Wizard Of Poetry (released September 2009), in which he attracted an A-list of duet partners including fellow Def Jam artists Kanye West & Ne-Yo (on the closing track, “Back Like That”), John Legend, Raheem ‘Radio’ DeVaughn, Fabolous & Shareefa, Lloyd, Vaughn Anthony & Estelle, and others.

Prior to The Wizard’s release, Ghost spent July-August 2009 on the road with Method Man and Redman, keeping the Wu-Tang Clan spirit alive and well on the month-long, 21-city Foot Print in Hip-Hop Tour.  The tour was attended by Ghost’s legions of fans, who have been tuning in to The World According to Pretty Toney long enough to know that “he doesn’t so much deliver rhymes as narrate graphically detailed scenes, rife with violence, passion and a little humor,” as USA Today once wrote.

More recently, Wu Massacre (March 2010), a collaboration with Method Man and Raekwon, was as close to a W-TC reunion on record as history has seen in the three years since the group’s last album, 8 Diagrams.  Wu Massacre was a collectors’ dream, with three separate album covers – one for Ghost, one for Meth, one for Raekwon – created by famed DC and Marvel graphic master Chris Bachalo.  300 randomly distributed copies of Wu Massacre contained Bachalo’s original un-inked pencil sketch of one of the three explosive color covers.  Those ultra-rare inserts now rank among the Maltese Falcons of hip-hop limited editions.

Ghostface Killah "Apollo Kids" Get 7 out of 10 In Spin Magazine!

After last year’s R&B-friendly Ghostdini: Wizard Of Poetry, Ghostface Killah’s ninth album consoles his hardcore constituency: Forty-plus minutes of gritty, soul-sampling beats soundtracking bizarro street tales (“Starkology,” “Ghetto”), with lyrical tough-guys Busta Rhymes, Redman, and more than half the Wu Tang Clan tagging along. On previous albums, Ghost found ways to casually reinvent himself (Supreme…
