May 9th has officially been deemed Ghostface Killah Day in New York City. The Wu-Tang Clan rapper was honored for his contributions to the music industry by Mayor Eric Adams, who presented him with an official Proclamation.
The ceremony on Monday coincided with the opening of Ghostface’s coffee shop Killah Koffee in Staten Island with business partners Ross Filler and Shawn Wigs. The rapper had been selling his coffee online for a year prior, but the shop marked the business’ first brick-and-mortar venture.
“There’s so many people coming out here seeing a performer, a young person who grew up here who lived in public housing and went to public school, and now is able to have a business out here; just coming back to the community,” Mayor Adams said, per HipHop-N-More. “That’s what it’s all about. So we just want to say, ‘thank you.’ ‘Thank you for reinvesting.’”
Ghostface said that he was “grateful and humbled” by the recognition.
