Tragedy

This new track from Marco Polo’s upcoming Newport Authority 2 is bittersweet.

TwelveReasonsToDie

Character concept albums are all the rap rage these days (Smoke DZA’s Rugby Thompson and The Alchemist’s Russian Roulette, to name just a couple reviewed here), and Wu-Tang alum Ghostface Killah does the same, basing Twelve Reasons to Die on a comic book of the same name. Dropped April 16, 2013, Ghostface’s tenth studio album is nothing short of symphonic. Hit the jump for the full review and album stream, courtesy of Spotify.

Ghostface1

Ghostface Killah, Inspectah Deck, U-God, Masta Killa and Killa Sin all trade sharp, menacing rhymes on the Adrian Younge-produced, RZA-channeling “Murder Spree.” Wu-Tang Forever flashback, anyone? This is the latest sample of Starks and Younge’s Twelve Reasons to Die LP, out April 16. There’s a shit load of goodies that come with the album — too many to list, in fact — so head on over to Bandcamp to window shop.

Greg Grease – “Forward”

 

 

If you’ve managed to get this far during the week, you probably deserve a break. And what good timing to introduce Greg Grease‘s latest video for “Forward”, a stripped down, less-is-more banger that doesn’t need to be overdramatic to get it’s point across. Directed by Adam Dunn as a part of his #LABB (Lights and a Backdrop) series, the visuals are as minimalistic as it gets, allowing the Grease, his DJ and his turntable to play centre stage. Check it out and be sure to pick up Greg Grease’s Black King Cole EP if you don’t already own it.
