Ghostface Killah Hoping To "Rhyme About God" On His Next Album

Ghostface Killah speaks on religion in new interview, says a lot of his questions were "answered through Islam."

With a Wu-Tang Clan album set for release this summer on top of the newly-released Twelve Reasons To Die, Ghostface Killah has quite a lot on his plate and he’s hoping to add even more thanks to a project that may catch some off guard.

As part of an in-depth interview with Fact Magazine, Ghostface revealed that he hopes to one day release a positive album about God, an album that people of all ages can enjoy. While speaking on the possible album, the Wu-Tang emcee shared that one of his duties in life is to teach and lead the people.

“Yeah, I wanna rhyme about God, I wanna do a God album, a positive album so the kids and everybody will understand what’s going on,” said Ghostface. “I want to tell what’s going on through my eyes. I don’t wanna give too many of my ideas away because people just be taking them. Feed the poor people, feed the animals, that’s one of the main reasons I’m here. God put me here to teach people and to lead people to his direction. I’m not a Christian, I’m a Muslim but God is one. I just believe in the most high. I know what my duty is.”

The Staten Island rapper further spoke on his religion and how many of his questions about life were answered when he began to study Islam.

“I’ve always been into Islam. I got a lot of questions and I got a lot of my questions answered through Islam,” Ghostface explained. “When I look at history and I look at all the prophets, I love them all from Moses, Noah, Jesus, Abraham, Solomon, David, Job, Ezekiel, John the Baptist, Jonah, all of them. I love them all because they all served a purpose. It’s like the stories I heard on all them prophets, I was fascinated by it.”

Ghostface Killah and Adrian Younge’s Twelve Reasons To Die was released on April 16 while Wu-Tang Clan’s A Better Tomorrow is set for release this July.

      You (& other 'believers' of nonsense fairy tales) are slowing down the progress for everyone without your ignorance. It's 2013! why have you not taken the time to 'educate' yourself. Clearly you have the Internet available, therefor you really have no excuse other than being lazy or finding 'bliss' in your brainwashed ignorance. NOT everyone needs to have a mental 'babysitter' to tell you what to do. It is actually a luxury to live without 'god'. Basically, we feel sorry for you, like a retarded child in the 'slow class' of life. Go away.

    "were eventually explained by science" Oh Science, which is basically man made speculations. Next theory.

    • Cynical_Heathen

      Making an attempt to find answers (science) is much better than assuming the people that could barley read or write (passing these 'stories' around the fire 2000 yrs ago), had everything figured out. It must feel special to be satisfied with being so retarded with all this knowledge available at your fingertips. I don't know if you should be aloud to enjoy the benefits of modern medicine or advancements in computer technology if you refuse to believe in any advancements of understanding since your 'biblical times'... Once again, please go away. we don't need you slowing us down from progress.

    Big Guwop is the realest rapper and heres why. 1) all other rappers rap about being gangster shooting and killing but they havent done it. 2) Eminem raps about killing he hasnt. 3)Jay z raps in open letter about sending shots he hasnt. 4)Nas raps about how he is a queens thug but he wasn't. 5)Most of the rappers rap about stuff they havent done yet you all support them and say its real rap. 6)When rick ross does it you all claim he is fake and say its fake rap. This shows that hiphop fans are hypocritical and all these real hiphop fan wanna be's are just some unjustified haters whose opinions are just as irrelevent as the swag fag rapper fans. BIG GUWOP KILLED A MAN HE WAS A DRUG DEALER BEFORE RAPPER HE HAS STREET CREDENTIALS HE IS THE ONLY RAPPER THAT RAPS ABOUT FACTS THERE FORE BIG GUWOP IS THE REALEST RAPPER IN THE RAP GAME AND THATS A FACT!.

    Jesus said in John 5:58 that before Abraham was I AM. God calls himself I AM. in Exodus. Only God can say that His name is I AM so that must mean that Jesus is more than a prophet.. He is the Son of God and God Himself.

    I read the Quran. I wasn't impressed: they pretty much just rehashed Bible stories.

    • Anonymous

      Abraham was around before Moses and Jesus, therefore there were no Torahs or Bibles. The word Christian doesn't appear in the Bible until Acts (way after he "left" in A.D.) and not once does Judaism appear. Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy are Moses' books, which are the the first 5 of the Bible, but is from the Torah. Many Christians use the New Testament only and many original books were left out. If you want to speak about Mohammedism and the actual book, you may be right, but what Abraham lived by is all up in the Torah and Bible, and that is Islam.

    • IMhO

      lmao at this guy^^^ how dumb are yu that u got your religions backwards.. bible came WAYYYYY before the quran and islam is the youngest religion.. dumbass

    • Anonymous

      Quran came before the Bible son. Christianity is the youngest "religion", and this leads to major flaw #2: If he was teaching the word that was "lost", and reaffirming the words of Moses and Noah, what was he teaching while alive if Christianity was after he resurrected?

    These non-God believers on support what their 5 senses allow them. If niggas was born blind, they wouldn't believe in color!! Based on that, I'm guessing the most important thing in life is money, which is being depreciated daily by a small group of people that own 90% of it! Its so sad to see yall worshipping money!

    Thank you Ghostface, at the end of the day its about the message. People want to confine that to one religion or say you cant learn from everything, and in essence restrict themselves and their way of thinking.

    Religion is merely guidance, a system. The underlying factor in all religions is Spiritual Truths.

  • Assassin221

    Whatever man, I was listening to Wu Block the other day and it was tight, but it was a damn far sight from God worshipping. I love hip-hop but one thing that always kills me is how rappers want to simultaneously praise God and talk about thugging and bitches. That shit is INCOMPATIBLE unless you belong to a religion that permits spending your days getting head from hoes and drinking 40s, last I checked Islam and Christianity are not it. And that goes for Scarface and DMX and all these assholes that try to get away with being spiritual and positive 2% of the time and think it counts for something.

  • Nick

    You God haters kill me. Constantly deriding believers and labeling them bigots for there beliefs that YOU CAN NEVER DEFINITIVELY PROVE WRONG. In reality; y'all the biggest bigots out there. On another note. I'm shocked no one has said yet: "Wu-tang is for the children." RIP ODB

    • Anonymous

      If anything believers deride those that point out flaws and call them heathens, disbelievers, sinners, etc. Kind of like what you're doing. I can point out 10 flaws in the Bible and get nothing but flack from believers, but I'm quoting the very same book you say you abide by. It's no secret many of the Christian faith are huge hypocrites, like many of you will say Jesus and god today and spam the comment section tomorrow with curses, lying, deceit, and lies. While you judge someone over a website article.

    "You need to study religion. All of them. Then you will see how the shit is made up. One day Christianity and Islam will be nothing more than a mythology". Agree a lot of religion is made up such as various sects made in Christianity and even Islam. But the pure message in the Quran is not man made it is from God. There is only 1 God, there is only one congregation of people, no sects, idol worship is forbidden. But people make their own laws such as saying Jesus is son of God which is wrong. Jesus was another human being on earth and was a messenger of God.

      Genesis, Chapter 4: 13-And Cain said unto the LORD, My punishment is greater than I can bear. 14-Behold, thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the earth; and from thy face shall I be hid; and I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth; and it shall come to pass, that every one that findeth me shall slay me. 15-And the LORD said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the LORD set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him. 16-And Cain went out from the presence of the LORD, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden. 17-And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch ^ now...... who were these people he was scared of? Why did the lord have to curse those people if they touched Cain, and put a mark (tattoo?) on Cain if there was only four people on Earth? And who was this woman he bore a child with and how did this land get a name (Nod) if it was only Adam, Eve, Cain, Abel, in Eden? AND, HOW would THEY KNOW what happened in Eden if they weren't there? The FIRST book in the HOLY Bible has a HUGE contradiction in it. We DON'T KNOW who these other people where, but WE CAN SEE (if you can READ instead of FOLLOW) that these dwellers of Eden were NOT the first people.

    "When you figure out why there are so many religions you will realize there is no God" There are so many different religions because most are manmade frauds, created to extort money from people who are too trusting, or too close minded to believe in a God they can't see.
