‘The Lost Tapes’ by Ghostface Killah

Ghostface Killah Releases New Album ‘The Lost Tapes’

Globally recognized as a pillar in music, Hip-Hop royalty Ghostface Killah releases his new album ‘The Lost Tapes.’ His independent projects and work with Wu-Tang remains unparalleled and continues to quickly grab the attention of music lovers worldwide. The album came as a surprise to me, as it came out shortly after Ghostface reunited with Wu-Tang on Logic’s album ‘YSIV’ for Wu Tang Forever.

Ghostface has many friends on this album and hosts 24 features on this project. The roster is made up of Michael RapaportKXNG Crooked, 38 Splash, Benny The Butcher, Planet Asia, Hus Kingpin, L.A. The Dark ManRas Kass, Chris RiversHarley, Snoop Dogg, E-40, Killah Priest, Bishop Lamont, Big Daddy Kane, Cappadonna, Styliztik Jones, RaekwonMasta Killa, Sheek Louch, Vic Spencer, Reignwolf, Luke Holland and Tricky.

Before even listening to the album, my heart was won over by the cover photo, referencing boo from ‘Super Mario’ – the nostalgic feeling grew rapidly. Being a fan of Ghostface, I was excited to hear this project and didn’t really know what to expect. As soon as the intro started playing, I felt this album was going to be legendary because he actually go Rapaport to introduce the album! From then on out Ghostface hit’s you with hard lyrics touching spirituality, music, life etc. He also united legendary names from the East & West like Snoop and Big Daddy Kane throughout the album. Ghost Face really reminded us how important artists like E-40 and Sheek Louch are for Hip-Hop, he also flexed that classic Wu sound with Raekwon, Cappadonna and Masta Killa in one track, ‘Watch Em’ Holla’. His track ‘I Think I Saw A Ghost’ was impressive as he had Luke Holland & Reignwolf lay down a Rock n’ Roll beat for Ghost and Vic Spencer to flame.

This 13-track album is definitely a heavy hitter and is made to get your adrenaline pumping.

Top 3:

  1. Done It Again
  2. Saigon Velour (Remix)
  3. I Think I Saw A Ghost

It was hard to pick a Top 3, but I knew as soon as I heard Big Daddy Kane go off in ‘Done It Again’, it was my favorite track.
