Criminology ’95 Vs. Criminology ’09

Raekwon and Ghostface – Criminology ’09

This is what the games been missin’, some Wu shit! In ’95 Raekwon the Chef dropped the classic Only Built 4 Cuban Linx aka the Purple Tape. 14 years later, the follow up Only Built 4 Cuban Linx 2 is supposed to be released, and the first taste of what the Chef is cookin’ up is the ’09 version of his single with Ghostface “Criminology”. It’s a dope re-issue of the ’95 joint but they had to bring it back for those who forgot about the Wu duo. Which goes harder?

Takin’ Em Back – 1/23

23 01 2009

Ghostface Killah feat. Mary J. Blige – All That I Got Is You

Even though I didn’t become a GFK fan til his second album, I always thought this was a excellent track and it’s one of Ghost’s best to date. Ghostface does his descriptive storytelling as usual about his struggles coming up. The vivid lyrics Ghostface spits makes the audience feel his pain. To add to the soulful piano instrumental, the Wally Champ gets Mary J. on the hook making the track flawless.

Dope or Nope 10/31 – New Ghostface!

31 10 2008

Happy Halloween! I’m kicking things off with some new GFK!

Ghostface Killah – Computer Love

New joint from one of my most favorite MC’s Ghostface Killah. Surprisingly, I noticed he’s dropping an album titled Ghostdeini the Great which will feature remixes and unreleased tracks that will drop later this month. “Computer Love” is not included on the (rumored) tracklist, which means that Toney Starks has another project in the works. Ghost has put out 3 albums in the past 2 years, makes me wonder what’s going on at Def Jam?





NearClassics: Ghostface Killah – Supreme Clientele

24 10 2008

When it comes to new millennium classics, the first that come to mind are Blueprint and Stillmatic. An album that’s often overlooked is Supreme Clientele which is a classic in my opinion. Before I listened to Supreme Clientele, I knew Ghost as one of the standout members of the Wu. Though this is his sophomore album, it was my first full length GFK album that I’ve heard.

Rock The Bells 2008!

22 07 2008

The lineup has been out for a minute, but I’m posting this for those who missed it. This has gotta be the hottest show since the Glow In The Dark Tour brought to you by Kanye and co. Nas and A Tribe Called Quest alone is worth it, but when you throw in Ghost & Rae, Red & Meth, Rakim, and a slew of others, you got one hell of a show. Rock the Bells will take place August 9th at the Glen Helen Pavilion in San Bernadino (and yes, tickets are still on sale). I’ll be there, where will you be?
