Today we got the first taste of what’s to come on the second installation of Twelve Reasons To Die, an album expected to come out of the Ghostface camp this July. Producer Adrian Younge and Wu-tang affiliate Ghostface Killah trade bars on ‘Return of the Savage’, a cold cut which even sees guest appearances from Wu’s Raekwon and RZA, ending the track with a narrative snippet. The song arrives at an interesting time with Younge’s experimental album (Linear Labs: Los Angeles) full of unreleased beats and collaborations set to debut later this week.
Here’s hoping that Twelve Reasons To Die II will be pick up where the first left off in terms of quality. If Ghostface ducks the 36 Seasons vibe and returns to his 2013 form, he really could embed the saga in the annals of modern musical classics. You can listen to ‘Return of the Savage’ featuring Raekwon and RZA down below.
