Rap artist Ghostface Killah will bring his solo skills to the Nightlight Lounge on Monday.

One of the original members of the Wu-Tang Clan, Ghostface Killah made his solo debut in 1996, with the album "Ironman" that would later go platinum. The album was produced by Wu-Tang member RZA and was well-received by the public, earning Killah some weight behind his solo work.

The follow-up release, "Supreme Clientele," was a solid release, attracting more attention than the first release, setting Ghostface apart from Wu-Tang.

Ghostface Killah, born Dennis Coles, went back and forth between working as a solo artist and with Wu-Tang through the years. Since 1996, he has released seven solo albums, his latest release in December 2006 with the album "More Fish."

Ghostface is touring all over the country in the fall, making a stop in Seattle, playing at the Showbox on Sunday night in case you can't make the Bellingham show.

The show at the Nightlight Lounge is $28; doors are at 8 p.m. and hip-hop duo Little Brothers opens.
