TWELVE REASONS TO DIE
Jesus Fuckin Christ!
It's a wrap y'all! Ghost Deini has done it! The curtains have closed!
What we have right here folks? Hands down the best Rap album of 2013!
There is, and prolly won't be no competition. I am fuckin ecstatic!
I might even be as bold and say this could very well be
one of the best albums of the last 10 years!
I mean, oh my lord! Have mercy!
If you are a Wu fan or a Rap fan in general and not
acknowledge with me right now how truly spectacular this album is,
you can take your Asap's, Tyler's, Wayne's and Future's and jump
off a cliff in front of my eyes so i can marvel at the death
of pussy faggot rap and give it all one last middle finger up! Ha!
No seriously, Adrian Younge and the almighty Ghostface Killah
have created a masterpiece here...in 2013. A masterpiece.
20 years after Enter the Wu.
For me, music to move me, has to have that one thing that
makes it all worth while: melodies...in whatever genre.
With rap, if you add the perfect flow, perfect rhymes & rhytmn,
you've got something that makes this genre one of the best
musical experiences there is. And with this album
Ghostface & Adrian nailed every single aspect.
The production, so very wu, is flat out amazing and
i think even surpasses RZA's in some way.
The choice of instruments, the melodies (!),
the vintage drum patterns and sounds, and even the
choice of opera-like approach to vocal parts.
It's all just so damn exquisite! I love every second of it!
As for Ghost, you know he's been so on point with everything he ever did
and never disappointed, but you know the production is that extra special
if you have Ghost shining like this. He kills every word, every line, and
as such a big fan, it is truly a blessing to hear something so fantastic.
This is up there with his finest work. Time will tell where the alb
stands amongst the rest of his incredible ouvre, but i have a feeling
it will be in his top 3 albums of all. And that's a tough feat!
Add to that, nothing but Clan features (Killa Sin is Wu yo!), and we finally
have the best WU release since the first clan members solo's started to
come out back in the mid 90's. Liquid Swords, Iron Man, Cuban Linx, etc...
This album could've easily been released 20 years ago and would
have blown me and the rap world away just the same
(perhaps for different reasons, but still...)
This is hip-hop at it's finest. Period.
I cannot praise this enough.
This really is a wrap.
Listen, marvel, be amazed and soak it all in.
and his name is Ghostface!
Overall Score: 10/10
