By Josiah HughesAside from his work on Wu-Massacre and a few guest spots, it's been a while since we've heard new music from Wu-Tang favourite Ghostface Killah. The rapper's last solo release was 2009's Ghostdini: Wizard of Poetry in Emerald City, a weird, sexed-up R&B experiment. Fortunately, the rapper appears to be returning to form with three new albums on the horizon.
The first is an album due December 14 called The Apollo Kids. Ghostface announced the record in a tweet earlier today (October 12), and while little else is known in terms of details - like if this is a compilation or a proper studio album - his 2000 hit "Apollo Kids" stands as one of his most universally loved songs.
In addition to the winter release, Prefix reports that Ghostface is working on two more albums. One is called Blue & Cream and the other is a sequel to his breakthrough 2000 album, Supreme Clientele, simply called Supreme Clientele 2. This follows Raekwon's epic Cuban Linx sequel and the GZA's upcoming Liquid Swords 2.
Stay tuned for more details as they become available. In the meantime, Ghostface will continue on a massive American tour that doesn't include any Canadian stops, but does include a CMJ date on October 22. All Ghostface dates can be seen here.
