Ghostface Killah & Adrian Younge
Album: Twelve Reasons To Die Why you should listen: You want an album with a narrative
If you want gritty, brutal tales of murder and extortion set to a backing of hard drums and orchestral flourishes then Ghostface and Adrian Younge's recent collaborative effort is definitely worth your time. The LP follows a narrative arc, tracing out a tale of revenge over its twelve tracks. Where MCHG sees Jay-Z hopping from subject to subject to subject, often in the course of just one song, Twelve Reasons To Die is a purposeful, highly focused piece of storytelling.
