Ghostface Killah

ghost-jester-cropGhostface’s new album is going to be more of an R & B record, thanks in large part to the personal growth he’s experienced since he first burst on the scene with the Wu-Tang Clan: “I don’t sell crack, yo.

I got intrigued by this and decided to catalog what other CDs people weren’t buying at Circuit City, even at 50% off.

Norman Mailer: Microphone Fiend?

So author Norman Mailer, called “pugnacious” or “a genius” or “a jerk” or all three in no less than 8,000 obituaries, kicked this weekend. Meaning everyone’s rushing to squeeze Mailer references into articles where they might not fit so good. Like this Mpls./St. More »

Lyle Lovett Has Destroyed Our Thinkin’ Brains

ghost.jpgLyle Lovett has recorded the theme song to the awful-looking upcoming musical satire Walk Hard: The Legend Of Dewey Cox with the help of Jewel, Jackson Browne, and … Ghostface Killah. (Somewhere my pal John’s throat just clenched without knowing why.) The brief description of said song in this Rolling Stone interview has rendered me momentarily … something:

“Leak” Of The Day: Ghostface Killah Pushes Weight

Nah Right has an MP3 of “Chunky,” the new Ghostface track from the just-released J-Love mixtape. It’s a solid turn, but considering the title, we were hoping it would be a loving tribute to one of the ’90s finest rhymers: Ghostface Killah – Chunky [MP3, link… More »
