Stream Ghostface Killah’s 36 Seasons Featuring AZ, Kool G Rap,

ghostface seasons

We’ve heard nothing but heat from Ghostface Killah’s next offering, 36 Seasons, the concept album produced entirely by a band called The Revelations, and now we have it in it’s entirety one week ahead of scheduled release.

Ghost’s protagonist for 36 Seasons sounds wizened, no “Wisdom Body.” The character is a revenge-obsessed, crime-ridden Staten Island vigilante who observes the deterioration of his community and feels embittered enough to try and change it. Other personalities weave their way into the record, like AZ, a nemesis, and Kool G Rap, an unlikely victim. It has more upbeat moments than Ghost’s last project, the morbid Twelve Reasons To Die, though it has a similar approach to narrative and an equally cohesive sound production-wise.

It is a completely mature album, from the Ghost-less soul interludes on “It’s A Thin Line Between Love & Hate,” “Bamboo’s Lament” and “I Love You For All Seasons” to the crisp, cleaned up beats like “Emergency Procedure,” which features Pharoahe Monch in tip-top shape. The more we listen to the album and unroll the storyline, the more we find.

Do yourself a favor and bump Ghost’s latest album, 36 Seasons, over at NPR, and then check out some of the exclusive pre-order bundles right here. What do you think of the new Tony Starks album?
