Ghostface Killah dropped his long-awaited album Ghostface Killahs this past week after delays. The project was well worth the wait though. Ghostface Killahs will transport the listener back to the mid-90s with its nostalgic instrumentals and focus on lyrical depth. A stand-out cut from the project is "Me Deny & Daryl," which features guest appearances from Ghostface Killah, Method Man, and Cappadonna.
An instrumental that sounds like it belongs in a 70's flick sets the tone for the Wu-Tang vets to lay down cinematic verses. There is no chorus in "Me Denny & Darryl," allowing Method Man, Ghostface, and Cappadona to flow freely with no restraint. The pure lyricism and lack of a hook force the listeners to focus on what is being said instead of just nodding along to a repetitive record.
Cauliflower wallabees, turkey legs, collard greens
Dollar dreams, if I'm not the T'Challa then what kinda king
Am I? My persona, man, it's nada, this is not a thing
Island got Italians, load the Talons and then bada-bing
Make 'em sing, this is not Sopranos, y'all, don't make a scene
Making cream, how I make it up without the Maybelline?
