Introduction 

Dennis Coles, better known by his stage name Ghostface Killah, is an American rapper and member of the Wu-Tang Clan. He debuted his solo-career with Ironman in 1996 and has continued his success over the following years. He is the founder of his own label Starks Enterprises. 

As of 2019, Ghostface Killah’s net worth is estimated to be $17 Million dollars. 

 

Early Life

Dennis Coles was born on the 9th of May, 1970, in New York. Coles grew up among a great number of siblings. Coles served his first prison sentence when he was 15 years old. 

In the mid-80s, he became inseparable from Robert Diggs “RZA”,  then known among the local hip-hop scene as Rakeem.

Along with RZA’s cousins GZA and Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Park Hill residents Method Man, U-God, Inspectah Deck, and Raekwon The Chef (and, eventually, Brooklyn’s Masta Killa), Ghostface Killah was recruited to form Diggs’ insanely ambitious project: the Wu-Tang Clan. 

 

Career 

Ghostface Killah’s music career began when his friend RZA founded Wu-Tang Clan. Killah helped bring together the other seven members of the group. In 1995, he guest starred on fellow Clan member Raekwon’s debut album, ‘Only Built 4 Cuban Linx’. 

In 2003, Ghostface signed with Def Jam Records, and the next year he released ‘The Pretty Toney’ album. The album, while containing two RZA productions, featured none of the Clan; instead, it featured collaborations with Missy Elliott, D-Block and Jacki-O.

The singles “Tush” and “Run”. Ghostface Killah also appeared on the track ‘On My Knees’ which became a huge hit in the UK and Australia. 

Shortly after the release of Only Built 4 Cuban Linx… Pt. II, Def Jam contracted Raekwon to work with their label artists Method Man and Ghostface Killah on an album later titled Wu-Massacre.

Production began in November 2009. Wu-Massacre was released in 2010, to generally positive reviews from most music critics with some mixed criticism due to the album’s rushed feel clocking in at a mere 30 minutes of music.

With heavy promotion, it sold 37,900 units in its first week. It has sold 64,000 units as of May 12, 2010. It features production from Scram Jones, Mathematics, and the RZA who produced the album’s lead single, “Our Dreams”.

As of 2019, Ghostface Killah’s net worth is $17 Million dollars.
