The Champ: Ghostface Killah

The results are in and, according to our thoroughly scientific polling datum, Ghostface Killah was the "Greatest Staten Islander of the Decade."

Terrible Tim made a last minute end run at the illustrious title, and minutes to midnight, almost made the improbable comeback. But Pretty Toney came out on top with, I dunno, like 27 percent of the voting or something like that.

Ghostface started out the decade on January 25, 2000 with Supreme Clientele and, in the Dump's opinion, probably could've stopped there and still won the "Greatest" title.

But Ghost then released Bulletproof Wallets followed by The Pretty Toney Album, Fishscale and The Big Doe Rehab.

After an OK R&B album in '09, Ghost is coming back hard with "The Wu Massacre," a collaboration with Wu legends Method Man and Raekwon due out in February.

Take a bow, Pretty Ton, it's time to celebrate.

We're not sure what exactly he wins, if anything. But maybe when the "Charlie Rose of Hip-Hop" Emilio Sparks interviews Ghost he can give him the award.
