The 50 Best Guest Verses of All Time

32. Ghostface Killah on Raekwon's "Criminology" (1995)

Album: Only Built 4 Cuban Linx
Producer: RZA
Label: Loud

Ironman performs armed robbery on this song, as he attacks this "militant" RZA track with the ferociousness of a starving pitbull. Packing more threats of physical violence than an M.O.P. song, he promises to "jux a brother," "send your ass back into the essence," and "throw niggas off airplanes," while simultaneously weaving in Five Percent mathematics and Wu Slang Democracy into a murderous package of verbal pugilism. This performance showcases Tony Starks at the peak of his "punch you in the face just for living" period, when he was known for terrorizing toy rappers just as brutally as he disciplined the microphone.
