Wu-Tang Clan’s Ghostface Killah surprised and blessed fans this Thanksgiving with a few extra helpings of heat. Dropping off two freestyles Thursday, the new tracks proved to be a simple treat for the holiday, yet still pack that heavy punch that Ghostface has been known for for decades.
The first freestyle “Bob James” has him reuniting with his Wu-Tang brother Raekwon. The dynamic duo tears through a classic Bob James’s sample as they never miss a step. The classic combination of Ghost and Rae goes way back since their first solo projects and decades later they still have flawless chemistry. “I Got Soul Freestyle” is a solo affair for Ghost but, nonetheless, he still is as sharp as ever.
Ghostface’s resurgence as of late stems from his previous comments of wanting to make a collaborative album with the Bruno Mars-Anderson .Paak tandem Silk Sonic in the near future. With old school swagger and refined lyrical ability, Ghostface is just as much as a ‘Killah’ now than he was back in his Wu-Tang days.
Each track outwardly displays the revered rapper’s wordplay and effortless flows, showcasing both Wu-Tang members’ knack for in-you-face energy and a presence unmatched by today’s brightest stars. Proving once more that they’ll always be some of the most consistent rappers in the game, Ghostface looks to continue his Supreme Clientele — with its sequel on the horizon — as fans can expect more collaborations with Raekwon in the near future.
