This month, Ghostface Killah released his latest solo endeavor. Titled Ghostface Killahs, the new, independent project involves Wu-Tang Clan partners Method Man, Inspectah Deck, and Masta Killa, as well as Cappadonna. Notably, G.F.K. also features some of the artists he’s been grooming for years, including Theodore Unit affiliates Solomon Childs and Shawn Wigs. Ghost’s oldest child, Sun God, is also featured (embedded below). Sun God has previously appeared on high-profile albums such as Fishscale, More Fish, and the Wu M*ssacre side-project with Raekwon and Meth.’
Among the 14 new tracks, one highlight is “New World.” The track features Eamon, who like Ghostface, is a native of Staten Island, New York. The retro-Soul singer who may be best remembered for 2003’s “F*ck It (I Don’t Want You Back)” joins G.F.K. for a song that combines a classic 1970s break-beat (care of Aaron Neville’s Allen Toussaint-produced single “Hercules”) with some musings on how we can collectively do better. The wise father is concerned about the world we are giving our kids.
