It’s all about Ghostface on this Week’s edition of Scottscope Talk Radio! First, the roundtable discusses his new collaborative concept album with musician Adrian Younge, 12 Reasons to Die!  How does it measure up to his previous work?  Does the Wally Champ sound as good over live instrumentation as he does over classic soul samples?  Why is Raekwon MIA this time out?  Does Adrian Younge successfully pay homage to composer Ennio Morricone?  Does he remain true to RZA’s vintage sound?  Is this the best release yet from Soul Temple Records?

We’ll also be doing a retrospective of Ghost’s career.  Is he the most accomplished lyricist in the entire Wu-Tang Clan?  Should he be considered one of the greatest rappers of all time?   Just how much has he grown since the release of Enter The Wu Tang?  Why do he and Raekwon make such an effective team?  Did his stint on Def Jam records truly help his career?  At 42 years old, should he still be rapping so much about cocaine?  Where does he go from this point? 

Last but not least, we’ll be having a belated 20 birthday celebration for Onyx’s debut album Bacdafucup.  Has it stood the test of time?  Did it change the course of East Coast Hip-Hop?  Does the group get as much consideration as they deserve considering the influence they exerted in the early 1990’s?   Is Sticky Fingaz one of the most underrated lyricists of his generation?  Did any of their subsequent albums measure up to this one?
