Artists You Should Know (ticket giveaway): Ghostface Killah

Ghostface Killah

Ghostface Killah is one artist who hardly needs an introduction.  He made a name for himself in the seminal rap collective Wu-Tang Clan and has since enjoyed a successful solo career; most recently releasing Ghostdini: Wizard of Poetry in Emerald City last month.  Needless to say, we are excited to present this hip hop legend at a sure-to-be explosive show at the Barrymore on Tuesday, November 3rd.  We’re also excited to offer our blog readers an opportunity to win tickets to see him live! Read on to find out how you could win.
