    New York, NY (February 14, 2013) – Soul Temple Records announces the release of Twelve Reasons To Die, the new album from Ghostface Killah and composer/producer/multi-instrumentalist Adrian Younge on April 16. Twelve Reasons To Die is a brilliant and daring crime/horror concept album. This is the third release from Soul Temple Records, a company whose mission is to release quality music coupled with packages engaging multiple elements of the creative community.

    Ghostface’s long-time Wu-Tang collaborator The RZA acts as executive producer on the groundbreaking album which melds the sounds of classic 36 Chambers-era RZA with Portishead, and the Italian film music of Ennio Morricone. The album will be available in various configurations including a standard CD, a deluxe double CD with instrumentals and a mini comic book, plus a digital deluxe version with instrumentals and digital comic book, multiple vinyl formats and a cassette. To visually flesh out the dark and gritty world of Twelve Reasons, Soul Temple Records has partnered with Black Mask Studios to produce a 6-issue comic book series and collected graphic novel featuring striking visuals and an intriguing dual-narrative structure with contributions from a host of stellar comic book artists.

    A National tour is currently be routed for Ghostface together with Adrian Younge and his live band, Venice Dawn, which will commence March 14th at SXSW and run thru early June hitting all major US markets. Tour dates will be confirmed and tickets will go on sale later this month.

    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, the critically-acclaimed soundtrack to RZA’s film The Man With The Iron Fists and the new Wu-Block album. Twelve Reasons To Die catches the gifted MC at the height of his lyrical prowess, and to celebrate this album announcement, Soul Temple is offering a free download of the first single, “The Rise of the Ghostface Killah.”

    Adrian Younge represents the next generation of black music producers. Twelve Reasons is Younge’s first project immersed in the world of rap and hip hop, and his aim is to deliver an organic re-appropriation of hip-hop circa the mid-90s. Younge’s previous releases, the Black Dynamite (2009) soundtrack and Something About April (2011) touched on psychedelia, ‘blaxploitation,’ and the cinematic soul of the 1970s.

    I'd check that out. I haven't bothered with a lot of the more recent stuff because a lot of it has just been sort of mediocre. I still love the first two Wu-Tang albums though, and some of the early solo stuff is almost as good, especially ODB's first.

    This is the last hip-hop album I got.



    Real good. The last P.E. single, "I Shall Not Be Moved", was real good too.

    PE's been consistently interesting from day one I think. I still give their new releases a shot. I might be one or two behind but I have most of them.

    Also I was going to go see PE when they played a free show in Central Park a couple of years ago but I got drunk on the subway and woke up in Flushing instead.

    As much as I love Wu the recent hip-hop I can't stop bangin' is Roc Marciano's RELOADED and Shabazz Palaces' BLACK UP.

    All-time favorite hip-hop album is hands down The Mouse and the Mask by DangerDoom. It was the first rap album I bought and got me hooked on hip-hop which I wasn't into back then. That new Ghostface Killa single is the shit!

    I really dig PE's There's a Poison Goin' On. I only have it on cassette though and I think the CD is OOP. Same deal with Pharaohe Monch's Internal Affairs.

    I got that Monch cd. I remember the day I got it. I bought a new mini-stereo from Circuit City and grabbed a handful of discs to celebrate. Monch's good but the album has never really grabbed me. Half my stuff is in AZ right now but when I come across it I'll mail it to you.
