THE INSTRUMENTAL VERSION OF ADRIAN YOUNGE’S ACCLAIMED COLLABORATION WITH WU-TANG CLAN’S GHOSTFACE KILLAH, RE-ISSUED FOR THE FIRST TIME ON LINEAR LABS!
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 first ever collaboration between Ghostface Killah and Adrian Younge. A daring,
full-length Crime/Horror concept album, 12 Reasons’ executive producer and Ghostface’s longtime Wu-Tang
Clan collaborator The RZA, referred 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 high-profile
appearances on Kanye West’s Cruel Summer, RZA’s The Man With the Iron Fists soundtrack and 36 Seasons,
his recent collaboration with The Revelations – 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) Something About April (2011), and There Is Only Now, his collaboration with Souls Of
Mischief (2012), touched on psychedelia, blaxploitation, and the cinematic soul of the 1970s. 12 Reasons was
Adrian’s first project in which he’s immersed himself in the world of hip-hop.
