Ghostface Killah’s 10th album: “12 Reasons to Die”, along with a comic book, released back in April. The album, in it’s entirety, was composed and produced by Adrian Younge.
Ghostface, Adrian Younge, along with Masta Killah were on a nationwide tour to promote the album. I was fortunate to see their show in San Francisco at 1015 Folsom.
(Side note: Whenever I go to a WuTang show, the diversity of the crowd always amazes me. I love that about WuTang fans. There is no complexity about being a Wu fan. You never have to feel as though you have to dress, act, or be a certain way. You can just be yourself, and all other Wu fans accept you.).
I attended their San Francisco show, and was completely blown away by the whole performance in it’s entirety. It was a raw display of Classic R&B meets Broadway, married to Psychedelic Rock– whilst having love affair with Hip Hop. It was trippy, intriguing, and exciting. I had never seen anything displayed as such, at a Hip Hop show.
Adrian Younge began the show with a live band “Venice Dawn”, all adorned in black neckties, suits, and sunglasses.
Ghostface Killah and Masta Killah then came out and put on a great performance. I hadn’t had one drink or a hit of weed. The show was damn amazing. I begged for people to pinch me, cause I seriously thought that I was dreaming.
