Ghostface Killah’s raps could be described as a vocal Blaxploitation film, complete with gangster tales, sexual encounters, humorous quotes and memorable lines. Adrian Younge scored Black Dynamite.
Ghostface Killah came into the game rapping over soul-sample-driven beats arranged by RZA. Adrian Younge makes retro soul that sounds like Bobby Digital himself would have sampled it.
Ghostface Killah loves the Delfonics. Adrian Younge is producing the new Delfonics album.
So yeah, the upcoming Tony Starks album, Twelve Reasons to Die (produced entirely by the aforementioned Mr. Younge and executive produced by RZA), seems to make a good bit of sense, and damn it all if the first single “The Rise of The Ghostface Killah” doesn’t exceed expectations.
