10. Twelve Reasons To Die
Label: Stone Temple Records
Notable Tracks: “Murder Spree,” “Rise of the Ghostface Killah,” “12 Reasons To Die”
Ghostface Killah comes back strong after his 2010 studio album Apollo Kids, which was met with critical acclaim, and delivers 12 Reasons To Die. After a brief hiatus from doing solo work, Ghostface crafted an album based around the comic book also titled ’12 Reasons To Die.’ The Wu-Tang member ensured that his tenth studio album would be finely tuned with the collaboration of producer and composer Adrian Younge and executive producer and narrator RZA. There’s no doubt that the chemistry between Younge and Killah is organic and when united they piece together a dark and twisted ride that delivers a ferocious story all in under 40 minutes. For what some might view as intimidating, Younge sets up a Zen garden for Ghostface that allows him to do exactly what he does best.
