Ghostface Killah, Wu-Tang’s most tireless and reliable solo artist—lately he’s been dropping 22-track albums every six months or so—releases his latest, Ghostdini: The Wizard of Poetry in Emerald City, on Tuesday (September 29). Aside from its epic Wizard of Oz-quoting cover, the fact that it’s significantly shorter than most of his recent releases (only 14 tracks) and heavy on the R&B hooks (Ghost doesn’t sing though), you can already listen to the whole thing, right now, right here.
On first listen, it’s pretty awesome, more careful and consistent than his usual sprawling mess of posse cuts, remixes, freestyles and skits. Nothing quite as wild as adventurous as a RZA or GZA record, but definitely better than anything Method Man or Raekwon has done lately. Someone should try listening to it while watching The Wizard of Oz to see if Ghost is on some Pink Floyd shit, because that would instantly make this the best rap album ever. (HipHopGame)
