Ghostface Killah reveals that both his next solo album, "Supreme Clientele 2: Blue & Cream", as well as his highly-anticipated joint album with MF DOOM will be released this year, and talks about the possibility of a Wu-Tang reunion album.
While Ghostface KillahÂ has been busy with his WuÂ Block project, we haven't heard much from him as a solo artist in quite a while. According to Ghost, the hiatus won't last much longer, asÂ he'll be dropping his follow up to 2010's Apollo Kids later this year.
The Wu-Tang rapper said he would likely drop his sequel to the classic Supreme Clientele sometime this summer.Â "[Supreme Clientele 2:Â Blue & Cream.] Hopefully this summer, hopefully this summer. Maybe like August or something like that," he said. "I'm going to try for August, September or maybe July, but I think August might sound more reasonable if i can do it. I shouldn't set it, because sometimes when I say a date, it don't ever [stick]. But I gotta put it out because I've been sitting in it going on three years."
Not only will he be giving us new solo material, but will also be dropping the much-talked about collaborative album with MF DOOM."I got the MF DOOM project coming. I think we're going to probably drop that around Halloween," he said, and also talked of his film/albumÂ collabo with Wu producer RZA.Â "I got the shit I just did forÂ RZA,Â Twelve Reasons to Die, that's coming in April. ... It's a whole fucking movie but it's an album from beginning to end. It's different, though."
As far as a new Wu-Tang album goes, Ghost can't make any promises, though he is definitely on board.Â "They talkin' about it. I would love for it to happen," he said.Â "I talked to RZA. RZA wants to do it and he said he was getting these other beats from real magicians, not nobody just making it in a beat machine. He wants to go a different route because it's the 20th anniversary. Like a real album, album, album, album, album, with real, real music. Not just samples and a bunch of shit. Just real magicians playing shit. ... You know, we've been having a lot of - not saying bad luck, but just a lot of disagreements. That's why a lot of times, you don't really hear too many new records. Hopefully this shit, we can get through that and just give it to the people and see what's up. But it gotta be right, though. If it's not right, I apologize."
