Vinnie Paz Recruits Ghostface Killah for “Herringbone”
Jedi Mind Tricks member Vinnie Paz just released a new solo album called The Cornerstone of the Corner Store. One of the finest cuts on the LP is the Oh No-produced "Herringbone" featuring Ghostface Killah. The Wu-Tang Clan's own Tony Starks unleashes some slick bars, throwing down impressive rhymes on Oh No's beat.
"Ding donging bitches flicking they pussy lips/French vanilla butter pecan, I call 'em sugar tits/Palming they ass, one finger in the stinker/40 pound herringbone chain without a kinker/Minger, my fur got stashed by some chambers/Barracuda grip, big stones is in my banger," Ghostface raps.
This past weekend was a huge anniversary for Ghostface as his classic debut Ironman turned 20. XXL caught up with the legendary MC to get reflections on his first solo album.
"I was ready but there were a lot of things going on. To me, Ironman was kind of dark for me," Ghostface said. "I wasn’t looking for it to be that dark like that. That’s why I say it could have been better. Going in there I’m thinking about music, I’m thinking about the block. It’s this over here, it’s family here, like everything just hit me after Only Built 4 Cuban Linx."
Make sure to check out XXL's entire conversation with Ghostface for insight about the Ironman album. The Wu-Tang member recalled the creative process behind LP and how RZA convinced him to call it Ironman instead of Supreme Clientele.
