Ghostface [click to read] revealed to MTV.com plans to record an entire LP with Wu-Tang Clan brothers Method Man [click to read] and Raekwon [click to read]. According to Ghost, the as of yet untitled album will go into production in the next couple of months.
“We ain’t got no title for it, but [Rae and Meth] been wanting to do that for a while, maybe like the past two years,” Ghostface said. “I was always with it. I think that right now, everybody is in that position to do it now. I think within the next two months, everybody will start collecting beats. Everybody goes in — [Raekwon] gets four songs, I get four songs, [Meth] gets four. Start coming around like that and seeing what we can do. Make a little phat, tight one. I told Meth the other day, ‘It’s gotta be phat and tight. We don’t need 16, 19 joints on there. Nah, nah, nah — 12 phat bullets. We do it like that, and that’s it.’ That’s gonna happen soon. It will probably be out by the end of the year or January, and that’s that.”
Ghost and Meth will also appear together on Raekwon‘s long-delayed Only Built 4 Cuban Linx II LP [click to read]. The album, which was supposed to release on August 11, will see a September release.
“Rae got darts,” Ghost assured. “His beats were up to par. He was doing what he gotta do. It’s good, man. People wanna see that. Rae‘s been like, ‘Cuban Linx coming, Cuban Linx is coming’ for years. [Fans] was like, ‘Yo, when is it coming, B?’ Now he’s finally finished it, and he’s gonna put it out September 8.”
In addition to these projects, Ghost is also anticipating the release of his R&B-inspired album, The Wizard of Poetry [click to read]. Although he plans to drop the album this year, an official date has not been set.
“If it’s not steaming,” he said of the finished product, “we can’t put it out until it’s right.”
