Wu-Tang Clan: Kung-Fu Flicks that Inspired their Names

Ghostface Killah

Ghostface Killah x the Ghost Faced Killer from Mystery of Chess Boxing (1979)

Over the years, Ghostface has proven to be one of the most consistent members of the Wu. He took his moniker from the main villain Ghost Faced Killer (Mark Lung, 龍冠武) from The Mystery of Chess Boxing (雙馬連環, 1979), aka Ninja Checkmate. The movie is about Ah Pao (Lee Yi Min, 李藝民) who seeks to learn the art of kung fu in order to exact revenge against the Ghost Faced Killer for murdering his father. As a sidenote, Ah Pao’s first teacher in the movie is a cook portrayed by Simon Yuen (Ol’ Dirty). (Even more foreshadowing, note#2: this piece of information is crucial for the origin of the last Wu-Tang member on this list.)

“Speaking of the devil psych, no it’s the God, get the shit right
Mega trife, and yo I killed you in a past life
On the mic while you was kicking that fast shit
You reneged tried again, and got blasted”
