If you are unfamiliar with the dastardly ways of CZARFACE, you need to go ahead and listen to their first album. The Wu-Tang emcee combined evil forces with the talented emcee Esoteric and producer 7L for a concept album centered around an evil hero, CZARFACE. Their first album featured Ghostface Killah, Cappadonna, Action Bronson and Roc Marciano and their new one, Every Hero Needs A Villain, is going above and beyond. This time they will have Method Man, GZA, MF Doom, Large Professor, JuJu, RA The Rugged Man, and Mayhem Lauren.
Aside from the aggressive raps and beats to knuckle up to, the album will come with a 70+ page, hardcover CD casebook and artwork by Gilberto Aguirre Mata (El Ultimo Codice) and L’amour Supreme, with “Death & Abduction,” a comic written by MC Esoteric. The album will also be available as a Double LP on clear vinyl which will include the full comic book and a limited edition cassette. There are bundle packs also available through Get On Down that include t-shirts, stickers, and other items.
You can pre-order the album on iTunes. Every Hero Needs A Villain will be available June 16th. You can peep the artwork, comic book, and bundle packs below.
Bryan Hahn wish he had a CZARFACE action figure as a kid. He’s on Twitter (@notupstate).
