In the early and mid-90s there simply wasn’t a better hip-hop clique than the Wu. Hell, there still hasn’t been anyone close to Wu Tang Clan in rap or rock or gospel or yodeling or damn well anything else since then. But in those halcyon years RZA helmed some all time classics, and Ghostface Killah’s Ironman is in the Top 5 solo Wu albums, which is saying a lot. So it makes sense that Boston’s Get On Down has finally decided to give Tony Stark’s classic the deluxe all star treatment, as they already have done to other Wu Tang gems such as Raekwon’s Only Built 4 Cuban Linx Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s Return to the 36 Chambers and GZA’s Liquid Swords. Like the others, Get On Down’s Ghostface Killah Ironman Premium Collection: Gold edition is a treasure trove for Wu Tang disciples, centered around a fully remastered Audiophile gold disc — the CD itself embedded with 24k gold. There’s also a 48-page full color hard cover book including extended artwork, album lyrics and text written by Chris Faraone, a double vinyl full color gatefold LP, and an 18” x 24” replica of the original poster. And it all comes packaged in a Cherrywood trophy box with a gold IRONMAN plaque. Just like the other Wu re-releases, Ironman also comes with cool unique twist: While GZA’s Liquid Swords came with a chess set, Raekwon’s Cuban Linx came with the Purple Tape and ODB came with, what else, a welfare card, Ironman features a 12″ x 12″ puzzle of the original LP cover. Like the others the box set is limited, but instead of only making 1,000 Get On Down’s upped the run to 2,000 copies worldwide this time. Get your Ghostface Killah Ironman Premium Collection: Gold edition over at GOD for $50.
