GHOSTFACE KILLAH’S “IRONMAN” PREMIUM COLLECTION: GOLD EDITION CD BOX





The folks behind Boston’s Get on Down (GetOnDown.com) did the classic justice, and are continuing their re-issue collection with a Ghostface Killah Ironman “Premium Collection: Gold Edition” CD Box. The collection features: ·

“24k Audiophile Gold Disc” (CD itself has embedded 24-karat gold) with re-mastered audio, housed in a “Cherrywood Trophy Box” emblazoned with IRONMAN plaque ·

48-page full-color, hard-cover book including extended artwork, album lyrics and text from journalist Chris Faraone ·

Black 2-piece outer box with gold-foil sticker embossed with Ghostface Ironman logo (online orders only) ·

12” x 12” puzzle featuring reproduction of original Ironman LP cover (online orders only) ·

CD box is limited to 2,000 copies worldwide

Now available online, the collection is offered in two separate packs. For $34.96, you can get the CD Box collection with the puzzle bundle. But for $49.96, you’ll get the same collection, with the added benefit of two LPs and a poster bundle. It’s possible I own every classic hip-hop album ever made (literally), but I can’t be the only one who gets super excited for these special editions. Sure, sometimes it’s difficult to shell out money for music you already have. Yet when it comes with behind-the-scenes interviews, posters, extended artwork and lyrics, as well as an improved musical quality, I can’t help myself. Any Ghostface fan probably feels the same way (one of my boys from school is going to eat this up – remind me sometime to tell y’all about the time Ghostface performed at our school… and then later that night played beer pong in my boy’s on campus apartment).
