Both MCs may be members of the nine-strong Wu-Tang Clan, but theyve backed each other so consistently over the years we can really think of them as a tight tandem, in the same league with names such as Eric B. & Rakim, Boogie Down Productions and Clipse. Dont believe me? Raekwons debut, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx , which bills Ghost as a guest star on the front, is a drug-rap classic, a touchstone for any contemporary MC who aims to depict the brutal hustle of the cocaine trade. And Ghosts first album, Ironman, which has Raekwons name and visage on the cover, was the first salvo in one of the greatest NY rap careers of the past decade.
So this Saturdays show? Kind of a big deal. Click here for videos featuring Ghost and Raes two all-time best team-ups.
