Judging from the fan-boy murderer’s row of selections on the Iron Fists soundtrack, my guess is that Bobby Digital has allowed Quentin T. to make his own list of dream collaborations. Or they have a very gifted 30-year old music supervisor who understands that not only were Freddie Gibbs and Meth supposed to rap together, […]

Evan Nabavian also enjoys the Green Lantern and Blue Dream. So far, Sheek Louch and Ghostface Killah’s collaborative album has materialized in the form of threadbare New York rap over throwaway beats. One would hope that none of these actually make the album and Wu-Block is produced entirely by the ’98 Hitmen or MF Doom. […]

The Wu Block single is notable for Starksologists because it validates the upbeat tone that Tony showcased two months ago in Soho. Admittedly, everyone in Lox is painting by inmate numbers here, but this is the most electrified that Ghost has sounded in years. No more Def Jam contractual obligation mode for now. I’m not […]

Doc Zeus is taking this back to the days before he had a certified player hating degree. Flashback to the summer of 2005: America was in the midst of year five of the George W. Bush “Appetite For Destruction” tour, my beloved Cleveland Cavaliers had just signed the Incomparable Larry Hughes and his 40.7% career […]

Do I need to explain why I posted this song? No, I do not. Obviously, it’s for Trife Diesel. Download: MP3: Ghostface Killah ft. Sean Price & Trife Diesel – “Laced Cheeba”

Tony Starks in Soho June 16, 2011
In the words of Zilla, Ghost is locked in. Spend 15 minutes getting excited over a new Ghostface project like it’s 2000 again. Goodie Mobb cameos, Wu tattoos, and upcoming projects. Starks is the only dude worth sitting through a Tim Westwood video for. Other video after the jump. Download: MP3: Ghostface Killah ft. Raekwon, […]

Word to the Gold Panameras February 23, 2011
Say what you want about Rotund Ricky, he holds his own in rap battles like he does at an all-you-can-eat crustacean buffet. Forget “Devil in a New Dress,” he first put everyone on notice with “Knife Fight” where he arguably topped Kool G Rap. Blasphemy yes, but even if that’s hyperbole, the finish was photo. […]

It’s a fair criticism to suggest that Ghostface is far too talented to write songs like “2Getha Baby.” When I started to write this post, I almost called it “N 2 Getha Now” the track that proved that circa 1999, anyone with the budget to afford Primo and Tical could’ve made a classic track. Apollo […]

Doc Zeus never had baked alaskan. Age is not a valued commodity in the dog-eat-dog world of professional rapping. Aside from the young pups clamoring to rip the necrotic, fleshy careers of the flabby and sick, age often robs rappers of that certain youthful couldn’t-give-a-fuck attitude that made us love our most esteemed veterans in […]

It’s unfortunate that Mark Ronson’s music arrives accompanied by all the onerous celebrity DJ/producer baggage, because occasionally the man’s musical talents are undeniable. Certainly his gifts lie squarely in the “ringleader with a good ear” category of Puff Daddy, than in the camp of legendary beatmakers. But from Lily Allen and Amy Winehouse, to his […]
