    Action Bronson has been getting comparisons to Ghostface Killah since the beginning of his career, but just as the critique seemed to fade away, it's been reignited by Ghostface himself. Earlier this year, Ghost admitted that he'd heard a Bronson song, and actually thought it was one of his own verses. It was brought up once again on Bronson's appearance on SportsNation, where he suggested Ghost wasn't come as hard as him at this point in his career, “He’s not rapping like this no more,” he said, "just being honest."

    The members of Wu-Tang Clan have always made songs that sort of play out like the soundtrack for some NYC-meets-Tokyo urban Kung Fu flick, but with 12 Reasons To Die II, Ghostface and company take the concept record route to develop a fine-tuned project.

    The hip hop crew is an essential part of success. Whether big or small, every rapper has an entourage. Sometimes it's full of rappers, and other times it's just his buddies from back in the day, nonetheless, weak links in a crew can water down the crew as a whole-- something we took into consideration when crafting this list. You have the multimedia approach that Odd Future takes, and also the full-on lyrical assault that Wu-Tang Clan makes. Both are great crews, but who would comprise a list of the best rap crews of all time?

    Raekwon and Ghostface brought in the 15th(ish) anniversary of Raekwon's classic debut, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx, with the stellar second installment (OB4CL2), and they have similarly big plans for the 20th anniversary. The duo will be teaming up for a 32-date summer tour, where we assume they will perform large portions of the album, if not just performing the full LP in its entirety. Things kick off July 7th in Philly, moving throughout the states (but unfortunately, not Canada) befor closing things off August 18th in L.A.

    It’s tough to get 100 percent behind the Wu-Tang Clan these days. No one can deny their influence and run of classic records in the 90s, but drama, stylistic confusion, and album delays have plagued the crew for the past half-decade.

    Raekwon's Only Built 4 Cuban Linx is a certified classic, depending who you're talking to, it could be viewed as the greatest Wu-Tang solo project (though it's almost cheating considering Ghostface is on nearly every track). It also gained the rare honor of a legitimately great sequel, with 2009's OB4CL2, but as the 20th anniversary approaches this year, Rae has one more surprise for fans of the project.

    Ghostface Killah goes by many names: Ghostdini, Iron Man, Tony Starks, Pretty Tone and any slang-derivative of 'em is pretty much fair game. Despite the identity crisis, Ghost has always been reliable for putting out quality music. The Staten Island MC, whose real name is Dennis Coles, is well-known for his witty slang and impeccable story-telling, all of which has weathered two decades of prolific output.
