With 36 Seasons, Tony Starks returns to Staten Island after 9 years, like a man returning home from a war. He wants the company of old friends, to reunite with his girl, to live a quiet life. But New York has other plans for himâ€¦
In 36 Seasons, those powers have never been more in-focus, as Ghostface takes his listeners on a gut-wrenching journey of double-crosses and revenge, through the rough and rugged housing projects of the famed Shaolin, in the shadows of New York City.
Ghostface once again delivers what the hardcore Wu-fans crave: desperate tales from the dark side over soulful boom-bap tracks. The soundscape is provided by Brooklynâ€™s The Revelations [soul group / production team]. Their hard-hitting tracks match the intensity of Ghostâ€™s violent narratives. His co-stars on 36 Seasons are legendary lyricists and storytellers in their own right, three of the greatest of all-time: Kool G Rap, Pharoahe Monch and AZ. The album also features vocal contributions from Blue Note Recordsâ€™ rising star Kandace Springs and gritty soul singers Rell and Tre Williams.
To visually flesh out the albumâ€™s dark and twisted world, the CD’s packaging includes 20 pages of striking images from a host of stellar comic artists, curated by the team that created Ghostfaceâ€™s 2013 six-issue comic mini-series, 12 Reasons to Die.
