Czarface feat. Ghostface Killah – Savagely Attack

czarface figure

I can’t be bothered reviewing albums anymore since everyone that’s interested has already streamed/stolen/ordered it anyway, but I will say that the Czarface album is surprisingly enjoyable. It’s fair to say that DJ 7L is in fine form here, handling the majority of the beats and cuts, while Inspectah Deck and Esoteric display a good chemistry as they share lead microphone duties. “World War 4″ features Deck over “Assembly Line”, which is genius in itself, while the production on “Dead Zone” and “Czar Rafeli” are serious stand-outs, earning this LP my coverted “New Rap That Doesn’t Suck” stamp of approval. Available now through Brick Records.



Ghostface Killah and Adrian Younge – The Rise of the Ghostface Killah

2000516377-1

This is the first track from 12 Reasons To Die, a new concept album from Ghostface and producer Adrian Younge. The plot revolves around Tony Starks falling for the daughter the Deluca crime family, who have him killed and “pressed Tony’s remains into 12 vinyl records, one for each member of the family”, which allows him to take his revenge from beyond the grave.

“A brutal tale of gangsters, betrayal and one vengeful soul hunting the 12 most powerful crime lords in the World”.

Pre-order the album here.

Managed to fight back the Wu-Fatigue from the other week and give this new Raekwon a spin. Despite sounding a little distorted due to being mastered FAR TOO LOUD, this is pretty good. The Scram Jones tracks were the stand-outs for me, especially the “Trans-Europe Express” flip on “Came Up.” Hopefully a remastered version appears soon, but in the meantime here’s the EP with the title that English teachers hate.

Congratulations to ceasar for winning the Masta Killa Selling My Soul Deluxe Edition (courtesy of Nature Sounds)for this Wu-Tang memory:

In 2005 I was locked up in LA County Jail for a year. I started the journey in 120 man dorms, but an ear infection sent me to the 6 man cell dungeon part of the jail back at Twin Towers, which was closer to the county doctors. My stay was only supposed to be for a few days, then I’d get transported back to the dorm, but there was a paperwork error, and I wound up getting stuck down there for 6 months. It’s grimy as shit, cold, damp, and dark at all times.

Some quality Wu banger action from the new Tarintino flick. Rusty’s involvement is always a point of concern, though…
