Ghostface Killah - 36 Seasons
Tony Starks returns to Staten Island after 9 years, like a man returning home from a war. He wants the company of old friends, to reunite with his girl, to live a quiet life. But New York has other plans for him...On his new release '36 Seasons' his powers have never been more in-focus, as he takes his listeners on a gut-wrenching journey of double-cross and revenge through the rough and rugged housing projects of New York's Staten Island. On '36 Seasons' Ghostface once again delivers exactly what the hardcore Wu-fans crave: desperate tales from the dark side over soulful boom-bap tracks. The soundscape is provided The Revelations [Brooklyn's acclaimed soul band / production team]. Their hard-hitting tracks match the intensity of Ghost's violent narrative. His co-stars on '36 Seasons' are legendary lyricists and storytellers in their own right, 3 of the greatest of all-time: AZ, Kool G Rap and Pharoahe Monch. The album also features vocal contributions from Blue Note Records' rising star Kandace Springs and gritty soul singers Rell and Tre Williams.
