Azelia Banks Wants Ghostface Killah/action Bronson Showdown


Azealia Banks Ghostface Killah Action Bronson Wu Tang Clan

Bronson upset the veteran during a recent appearance on ESPN show SportsNation when he criticised the hip-hop superstar's talents, suggesting he's not as good as he used to be.

Bronson has since apologised after Killah threatened his life in an expletive-laden statement, but the Wu-Tang Clan member has refused to accept his rival's remarks - and now Banks, who has also fallen out with Bronson in the past, is baying for a showdown.

Picking up the beef between the two rap heavyweights on Twitter on Tuesday (21Jul15), she wrote, "But remember when Action Bronson had all that mouth to insult me but now that ghostface pulled his card he's mum... F**king fat slob. I want to see him get f**ked up SO badly...

Action Bronson Apologises To Ghostface Killah For Tv Criticism


Action Bronson Ghostface Killah Wu Tang Clan

The heavyweight Easy Rider star, who has drawn comparisons to Ghostface's style of rapping, criticised the hip-hop veteran during an interview on ESPN's SportsNation show earlier this month (Jul15), after interviewer Max Kellerman admitted he only bought Bronson's latest album, Mr. Wonderful, because he mistook his vocals for those of Ghostface.

Bronson responded, "He’s not rapping like this no more (sic)", adding, "Just being honest".

An angry Ghostface fired back at Bronson in a video message posted online on Monday (20Jul15), when he went as far as to threaten the 31 year old's life.

Ghostface Killah And Pras Michel Launch New Rap Video App


Ghostface Killah Wu Tang Clan Pras Michel

The Ooh Wee hitmaker has teamed up with the Fugees' Pras Michel and rapper/actor Saigon to create Spit 16, which allows artists to film and upload their promos for subscribers to watch and rate.

Ghostface hopes rising stars will use the app to get more creative with their videos after tiring of seeing scantily-clad girls dance around a luxury home or club in so many modern-day clips.

He tells the New York Daily News, "A 'good' video now, I guess, is a banging crib (house), girls with their a**es out and cars. That's what you see. But (to make) a good video, you hardly need any of that s**t...

BadBadNotGood & Ghostface Killah - Sour Soul Album Review


It's a testament to how far hip-hop has come in recent decades that one of this year's biggest releases sees big-name veteran Ghostface Killa collaborating with Canadian jazz trio, BadBadNotGood. 'Sour Soul' comes as the third link on Ghostface's chain of live-backed albums but BBNG's first full-length recording project with a rap vocalist. The trio appropriate their sound to the film-noir-style of the previous two Ghostface albums; 'Twelve Reasons to Die' and '36 Seasons'.

BadBadNotGood & Ghostface Killah - Sour Soul Album Review

Despite rumours prior to its release, Ghostface does not feature on every track - three instrumental tracks are included, which offer pretty interludes to the album's dark narrative. Opener 'Mono' builds playfully, xylophone and a climbing bass line drive the song into a rousing teaser of what's to come. 'Starks Reality' and final track 'Experience' demonstrate masterful use of brass and string arrangements, the latter of which is not only one of the album's brightest moments but comes across as strikingly professional and sincere.

Ghostface's stronger points on 'Sour Soul' are mostly in its latter half; centrepiece 'Tone's Rap' sees Ghostface bellyaching as fictional pimp, (- "b***h- the f**k I got lint on my robe/ I can't pimp in these clothes") to results that are both aggressive and comic. 'Mind's Playing Tricks' is an ode to GK's evil villain alter-ego, boasting bad-assery ("Street clientèle I flip, Buy and sell half the chains/ leaving a mark on my neck, That ain't frail.")  And on his last two tracks, 'Food' and 'Nuggets of Wisdom', GFK spits life advice at his audience, ("Superficial, don't get sucked into the scene/ The grass ain't always green, the meat ain't always lean"). These moments help to develop the album's thematic concepts as well as offering GFK wider lyrical territory.
