Ghostface Killah Twelve Reasons To Die on LP
The sounds of classic 36 Chambers-era RZA meld with Portishead and the Italian film music of Ennio Morricone on 12 Reasons To Die, the new album from Ghostface Killah and Adrian Younge. This project is a daring, full-length crime/horror concept album. Twelve Reasons' executive producer and Ghostface's longtime Wu-Tang Clan collaborator The RZA, refers to the album as "groundbreaking" in the hip-hop genre.
Ghostface Killah's prominence in hip hop has grown steadily over his 20-plus year career - including recent high-profile appearances on Kanye West's Cruel Summer, RZA's The Man With the Iron Fists soundtrack and the new Wu-Block album - Twelve Reasons To Die catches the gifted MC at the height of his lyrical prowess.
Composer/producer/instrumentalist Adrian Younge represents the next generation of black music producers. His aim is an organic re-appropriation of hip-hop circa the mid-90s. His previous releases, the Black Dynamite soundtrack album (2009) and Something About April (2011), touched on psychedelia, blaxploitation, and the cinematic soul of the 1970s. Twelve Reasons To Die is Adrian's first project in which he's immersed himself in the world of hip-hop.
