  • Ghostface Killah & Adrian Younge streaming new album; new Czarface (Inspectah Deck + 7L & Esoteric) album out now too

    Ghostface Killah is having quite the prolific year. He already released a collaborative album with BADBADNOTGOOD, and this Friday (7/10) he releases a collaborative album with Adrian Younge, Twelve Reasons to Die II. (It's the followup/sequel to 2013's Twelve Reasons to Die.) The album features Ghostface's fellow Wu-Tang Clan members Raekwon and RZA, neo-soul singer Bilal, the quickly-rising Vince Staples and more. You can stream the whole thing over at the NY Times. The song with Vince is also streaming below.

    Ghostface isn't the only Wu-Tang member working with interesting collaborators lately. Inspectah Deck's collaborative project with underground Boston duo 7L & Esoteric, aka Czarface, released their second album this past June. It's called Every Hero Needs a Villain and features Wu-Tang pals Method Man and GZA, plus DOOM (who's also on the Ghostface/Badbadnotgood LP), Large Professor, R.A. the Rugged Man and Juju of The Beatnuts. It follows…

  • Ghostface Killah: Adrian Younge presents Twelve Reasons To Die II review – hard-boiled hip-hop capers

    (Linear Labs)

    Ghostface Killah’s renaissance – see his solo album 36 Seasons, and Sour Soul, the collaboration with jazz trio BadBadNotGood – continues with the second instalment of his hardboiled hip-hop caper made with Adrian Younge, LA producer and soundtrack composer: Younge’s lavish, jazz- and soul-tinged production providing the aural red carpet for one of rap’s greatest yarn-spinners. The story – featuring Ghostface as Tony Starks, the betrayed gangster who gets stabbed in the back by the DeLuca crime family – is at times ridiculously bellicose (the closing track, Life’s a Rebirth, makes the end of The Wild Bunch seem tame), but these kinds of over-the-top payoffs are what the Wu Tang Clan have always traded in. RZA’s narration and appearances from Raekwon (who plays Starks’ avenger, Lester Kane) keep the Wu connection alive, but cameos from Vince Staples (Get the Money) and Bilal (Resurrection Morning) make sure it’s not the same old faces going over the same ground. The Ghostnaissance continues.
