Eight Gigs: Ghostface Killah & Raekwon

Thu., July 28, 7 p.m., Ace of Spades, $32

2015 was the 20th anniversary of the illustrious purple tape, a.k.a the release of Raekwon’s Only Built 4 Cuban Linx, guest starring Ghostface Killah. Widely regarded as one of the all-time best rap albums, the Source eventually corrected its 4.5-mics review from 1995 to make it an undisputed five mics—indicating certified classic status. A year later, Ghostface dropped his debut Ironman, collaborating heavily with Raekwon yet again, to similar fanfare. Between their respective solo records and Wu-Tang Clan albums, there are 23 years of collaboration to play out. 1417 R Street, www.facebook.com/
