We in the Hip-Hop community know that there are two Tony Starks’. There’s the superhero in the Iron Man comic books, who is played by Robert Downey Jr. in the big budget movie version…and our boy Ghostface Killah a.k.a. Tony Starks from the Wu.
What do you think would happen if these two Starks’ met face to face? Do you think there’d be a knife fight about who is the “real” Tony Starks? Not quite. Although, according to Ghostface Killah, real recognize real – and upon meeting Robert Downey Jr. in person, he says that Robert acknowledged his realness. Check out what Ghostface told MTV below:
“I met Tony, I mean [Robert Downey Jr., he said, ‘Yo, I know you the real Tony Starks.’ I ain’t even think he know me. I was like, ‘Oh sh-t.’ I had to give him dap, give him a hug based on that sh*t.”
So, you would think that would make Ghostface satisfied right? Nope, he was kind of upset that they never called him to contribute to the soundtrack for the new Iron Man 3 film hitting theaters on April 26, 2013.
“But see, them n*ggas was supposed to be calling the kid and doing like a song or two, at least,” said Ghost. Check out the full interview below:
Sidenote: MTV also reports that Ghostface is currently being sued for using audio from the “Iron Man” cartoon is his 200o album, Supreme Clientele.
“Remember on Supreme Client, we were Tony Stark’d out with the skits, the ‘Iron Man’ skits and all that sh*t. Them n—as comin’ for that sh– after all that time.”
Wow, that’s got to hurt. Hopefully Ghost can work that out somehow. Check out the new Iron Man 3 trailer below. It was just released two days ago, and it already has 27 million views! Do you think a Ghostface song would work anywhere in there?
