twelve reasons to die

After releasing the first single, “The Rise of Ghostface Killah,” and looping us in with all the details last month, Ghostface Killah and Adrian Younge serve up a second sample of their forthcoming collaborative album, Twelve Reasons to Die. “The Sure Shot (Part 1)” is another cinematic score, driven by a dusty breakbeat and sparse licks, while “Part 2” slides in straight after with a vibrant piano sequence. Both feature the usual dexterous rhymes from Tony Starks.

Executive produced by RZA, Twelve Reasons to Die hits stores April 16 and will include a six-issue comic book series and collected graphic novel. The record should warm us up for Ghostface’s other new projects, Supreme Clientele 2 and a collaboration with MF DOOM, which he says could arrive in the Summer and around Halloween, respectively.
