Ghostface Killah took a few years off from his solo career, but he’s ready to dive back in. During an interview with Montreality, Tony Starks said that Supreme Clientele 2: Blue & Cream is scheduled for release this summer and that it could possibly arrive as early as July.
“Blue & Cream. Hopefully this summer, hopefully this summer. Maybe like August or something like that,” he said. “I’m going to try for August, September or maybe July, but I think August might sound more reasonable if i can do it. I shouldn’t set it, because sometimes when I say a date, it don’t ever [stick]. But I gotta put it out because I’ve been sitting in it going on three years.”
Additionally, he confirmed that his collaborative LP with MF DOOM will finally get released this year. He said that fans sould anticipate the album dropping around Halloween, and will satiate fans in the meantime with his Adrian Younge collaborative project Twelve Reasons to Die, dropping April 16th.
“I got the MF DOOM project coming. I think we’re going to probably drop that around Halloween,” he said. “I got the shit I just did for RZA, Twelve Reasons to Die, that’s coming in April. … It’s a whole fucking movie but it’s an album from beginning to end. It’s different, though.”
As for the storied Wu-Tang Clan reunion LP, Pretty Tony said that the crew has been in talks to record another album but that there are no solid plans set in stone. He said that RZA hopes to get true musicians to craft beats for the project and that it will stray from the sample-based sounds of albums past.
“They talkin’ about it. I would love for it to happen,” he said.” I talked to RZA. RZA wants to do it and he said he was getting these other beats from real magicians, not nobody just making it in a beat machine. He wants to go a different route because it’s the 20th anniversary. Like a real album, album, album, album, album, with real, real music. Not just samples and a bunch of shit. Just real magicians playing shit. … You know, we’ve been having a lot of – not saying bad luck, but just a lot of disagreements. That’s why a lot of times, you don’t really hear too many new records. Hopefully this shit, we can get through that and just give it to the people and see what’s up. But it gotta be right, though. If it’s not right, I apologize.”
Ghostface will release Twelve Reasons to Die on April 16th. Watch the full interview below.
