Ghostface Killah 

Wednesday, 8 p.m. March 8. Pop's (1403 Mississippi Avenue, Sauget, Illinois)

While the rest of the Wu-Tang Clan has lost their way (Method Man resorted to a crap sitcom on FOX; ODB, sadly, is R.I.P.; the RZA's disciples have outdone their master; the GZA and Raekwon are, we can only hope, plotting their comebacks), Ghostface Killah — a.k.a. Tony Starks, the man who once described God as his bodyguard — is the only Wu-banger who's consistently kept the fire burning. What other Wu member has had not one, but five slamming solo albums? Ghostface has been able to successfully straddle both underground and mainstream hip-hop by keeping himself and his fans on their toes. He's formed his own side posse, Theodore Unit, has appeared on countless compilations, and has even teamed up with underground producers like MF Doom and Prefuse 73. So don't play yourself like a sucka: Go see the world's best MC performing at the world's best trucker bar.
