There are very few amazing and talented veterans in the rap game; Ghostface Killah is one of the those tiny few. At 37, Ghostface has released seven solo albums, is a member of The Wu-Tang Clan and shows a lighter side on the MTV2 shorts “The World According To Pretty Toney” and in films like “Walk Hard.”
On “The Big Doe Rehab,” the violence is still in full force. On the song “Walk Around” an innocent trip to the grocery store turns into a murder and how much of a bitch it is to get the blood stains out. Trust me, it is a bitch getting blood stains out of your clothes.
After a murder, Ghostface knows how to have a good time. On “We Celebrate”, Ghostface celebrates hip hop, poppin’ corks, New York and the world. “Paisley Darts” is a true “you can’t fuck with me” anthem featuring Cappadonna, Method Man, Raekwon, Sun God, and Trife Da God. I would give you a line, but there are too many to choose from and I would be writing the whole song.
Like I said from the beginning…there are very few good veterans.
p.s. If you want a fact, The Wu-Tang Clan’s “The 8 Diagrams” was supposed to be released on December 4th, but Ghostface was upset as this is the date he was releasing his album. RZA of Wu-Tang moved the Clan’s release to December 11th to avoid conflict.
