With the Wu's sixth studio album set to drop later this year, 2013 has already witnessed some insane Shaolin mastery.
Czarface, the collaboration album between Inspectah Deck and 7L & Esoteric, is already on many people's record of the year lists. It was difficult to choose just the one track off this expansive record, but we've settled for Cement 3s featuring a sick Shaolin'style beat by 7L.
Earlier this year Ghostface and Adrian Younge combined to produce one of those concept albums that will stand the test of time. 12 Reasons to Die combines Ghostface's lyricial virtuosity with Adrian Younge's masterful compositions. Set in 1960s Italy, Tony Starks fights against a crime organization in an intrictate plot including a love story with the kingpin's daughter. The album definitely deserves multiple listens! Here we feature The Rise of the Ghostface Killah featuring Masta Killa and Killa Sin.
Rise of the Ghostface Killah
Although not released to much fanfare, Killah Priest's latest full length offering, The Psychic World of Walter Reed, features KP in fine fettle. Cosmic lyrics are accompanied by cosmic beats in this gem of a record.
Ps. how sick would a Killah Priest/Jay Electronica collab be??
