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 him…
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 Brooklyn’s The Revelations [soul group / production team]. Their hard-hitting tracks match the intensity of Ghost’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 Records’ rising star Kandace Springs and gritty soul singers Rell and Tre Williams.
To visually flesh out the album’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 Ghostface’s 2013 six-issue comic mini-series, 12 Reasons to Die.
