In the 1st half of 2018, Wu-Tang Clan fans worldwide were hopeful that the previous sale of the one of a kind Wu-Tang album, Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, would change hands from the currently incarcerated owner Martin Shkreli to Wu-Tang affiliate Matthew “M80” Markoff who would release it freely to the public— to be appreciated by all. In light of Markoff’s 1 million dollar offer, the sale never came to fruition and Markoff like most Wu-Tang fans simply wrote off the notion of the one of a kind album and any chance at ever being able to hear it after that.
It’s a good thing that Ghostface is a man of the people! Wu-Tang Clan’s own Ghostface Killah will release his new studio album, The Lost Tapes, alongside legendary underground producer Big Ghost on 10-5-18. The collective goal was to bring fans back to the Ironman/Supreme Clientele/Cuban Linx Era sound. Both Ghost’s set out to revive that feeling, update it for 2018 and create another certified Wu-Tang Banger!
The Lost Tapes also features an All-Star Line-Up including; Snoop Dogg, E-40, Big Daddy Kane, Raekwon, Masta Killa, Cappadonna, Killah Priest, Sheek Louch, Ras Kass, Michael Rappaport and more.
After announcing the new project a few weeks ago with “Saigon Velour,” Ghostface returns with “Buckingham Palace,” which features Griselda Gang’s Benny The Butcher, KXNG Crooked and 38 Spesh. “Benny and the entire Griselda camp definitely got the torch right now and his style is impeccable. Spesh and G Rap just dropped an album and any emcee that can go bar for bar with G Rap has my admiration” Ghost commented. “Crooked is one of those emcees that is universally respected and one of the west coast’s elite. Put it all together and you got a marvelous feast for your ears no doubt.”
