Image: 1580203 The sounds of classic 36 Chambers-era RZA meld with Portishead and the Italian film music of
Ennio Morricone on 12 Reasons To Die, the new album from Ghostface Killah and Adrian Younge. This project
is a daring, full-length Crime/Horror concept album. 12 Reasons’ Executive Producer and Ghostface’s
longtime Wu-Tang Clan collaborator The RZA, refers to the album as “groundbreaking” in the hip-hop genre.
Ghostface Killah’s prominence in hip hop has grown steadily over his 20-plus year career – including recent
high-profile appearances on Kanye West’s Cruel Summer, RZA’s The Man With the Iron Fists soundtrack and
the new Wu-Block album – 12 Reasons catches the gifted MC at the height of his lyrical prowess.
Composer/producer/instrumentalist Adrian Younge represents the next generation of black music producers.
His aim is an organic re-appropriation of hip-hop circa the mid-90s. His previous releases, the Black Dynamite
soundtrack album (2009) and Something About April (2011), touched on psychedelia, blaxploitation, and the
cinematic soul of the 1970s. 12 Reasons is Adrian’s first project in which he’s immersed himself
in the world of hip-hop.
