Cop Today: Ghostface, Del & Tame, Jay ARE, & P.U.T.S.

Ghostface – Ghostdini : The Wizard of Poetry in Emerald City

Among the multitude of hip-hop albums dropping today, here’s a few that caught my eye.

Y’all already know how I feel about that Ghostface album. In addition, I suggest checking out from J. Rawls & John Robinson as jazz-hop duo Jay ARE, an eccentric collabo between Del the Funky Homosapien & Tame One, plus a brand new LP from Los Angeles’s  People Under The Stairs.

Videos from Ghostface Album Release Party

Last night was pretty epic for both hip-hop culture and my personal journey as a part of it.

Ghostface tore down Hiro Ballroom NYC for his Ghostdini: The Wizard of Poetry in Emerald City release party, bringing out a boatload of special guests including U-God, Jadakiss, Redman, Large Pro & Kid Cudi.

After promoting William Cooper’s Beware of the Pale Horse on the street with Cooper & BP then waiting three hours on line in the chilly Manhattan wind, we finally made it inside right before Ghost rocked.  Similar to the other times I’ve seen Tony Starks live, the energy was non-stop intense – rap cats of all ages (even Hov)could take away a few pointers.

As for me personally, I met Pharoahe Monch, 9th Prince of Killarmy and Trife da God throughout the night. Besides a scuffle on stage as near the end of the show, it was extremely dope overall.

I’ve linked some of the concert footage popping up round the ‘net. Up top is a good angle, shout to Ian for the heads up & Digiwaxx for the vid. You’ll see a different vantage point down below, thanks to Khal for the heads up.

Let’s go hip-hop, Enjoy!

Tonight

Here’s your friendly reminder that MySpace Music, Socialight & Digiwaxx are presenting Ghostface Killah live tonight at Hiro Ballroom NYC alongside production duo Beatnick & K-Salaam.

Doors open at 8 PM, but since this is a free show I’d recommend showing up crazy early. William Cooper and I will be in the building promoting Beware of the Pale Horse so come say what’s up if you see us out there. Dallas Penn might be joining us as well.

Ghost will be promoting his latest effort Ghostdini: The Wizard of Poetry in Emerald City while Beatnick & K-Salaam should be rocking songs from their fly remix album Never Can Say Goodbye featuring reinterpretations of classics from Michael Jackson, Marvin Gaye and Stevie Wonder.

Ghostface

Fellow Ghostface fans can now stream Tony Starks’ latest offering Ghostdini: The Wizard of Poetry In Emerald City courtesy of iMeem and Universal.

I haven’t been this excited listening to a Ghost album since, well, probably Fishscale. Not many rappers can flip a sultry R&B record the way the Wallabee Champ does and still come correct with lyricism.

Peep the link and tracklist below, plus the dates for his upcoming U.S. tourGhostdini: The Wizard of Poetry in Emerald City drops next Tuesday, the 29th. Enjoy!
