Stream Ghostface Killah’s New Album
Ghostface Killah and Adrian Younge unveil their Twelve Reasons To Die II album just in time for the holiday weekend. Featuring Raekwon, RZA, Vince Staples and Bilal, the follow up to Twelve Reasons To Die is another chapter in Ghost's fictional mafioso tales. The concept album paints vivid pictures and sounds more like a screenplay for a gritty early '70s mafioso flick and, if he really wanted to, Ghost could probably try his hand at screenwriting. Stream the project via The New York Times here.
The album is produced entirely by Younge and features a more sinister storyline than the original. Younge uses scores from Italian horror films as his inspiration and mixes it up with boom bap drums for production that RZA will certainly be proud of. Recorded entirely on analog tape to capture the essence of old soul vinyl albums, Twelve Reasons To Die II officially drops July 10.
Ghost won't spend much time relishing in the moment as his long-awaited project with MF Doom seems to be in the works. Fans will get a chance to hear potential cuts from DOOMSTARKS. The duo is scheduled to perform at Miami’s III Points Festival in October and the performance will not be your regular run-of-the-mill program, which is to be expected whenever Ghost and Doom are involved. According to Pitchfork, Doom will be “transported Star Trek-style directly onto the III Points Festival stage,” and will appear on a live screen “from the other side of time.”
