Ghostface Killah Released 'The Pretty Toney' On This Day in 2004

The Pretty Toney Album was the fourth studio album from Ghostface, a member of the Wu-Tang Clan. The album was released on April 20, 2004, via Def Jam Recordings. It is the only album to be released solely under the title of ‘Ghostface’. If you look closely you will notice that ‘Killah’ has been omitted from his name.

The album cover is a photograph taken from his performance of the song “Summertime” with Beyoncé at Jay-Z’s farewell concert at Madison Square Garden in November 2003. It is an interpolation of the cover of Doug E. Fresh’s album The World’s Greatest Entertainer. The oversized jewelry he is seen wearing in the photograph was given to him prior to his performance by rapper Slick Rick, as seen in the film “Fade to Black.”
