Ghostface Killah added to Intonation Festival
Ghostface Killah was named as a late addition to the 2006 edition of the Intonation Music Festival in Chicago. "We are proud to announce that Ghostface has been added to Saturday's bill," the festival's website proclaimed Monday. "This original member of the mighty Wu-Tang Clan has been blowing up the charts (and your radio) with his hot new Fishscale LP." Ghost joins Dead Prez, Rhymefest and Lady Sovereign among the hip-hop contributors to the two-day event, which drew 30,000 people last year. The Intonation Music Festival will take place in Chicago's Union Park on June 24-25. Two-day passes are $35 and one-day passes are $20. Both include a subscription to Rolling Stone magazine. Meanwhile, Ghostface is making some noise thanks to comments he made to Prefix magazine. When asked if "New York is jealous it lost the hip-hop crown" to the south, Ghost replied with a big F.U.N.Y. "New York lost the crown because the New York deejays gave the crown away for some money," Ghostface told Prefix. "Right now, I say f--- New York... I don't know -- for some reason we started to get really soft. And now we act like we want that real hip-hop back... we trying to bring it back but we can't even play that real hip-hop on the radio."
