CZARFACE & Ghostface Killah

Czarface meets ghostface

It's so easy to set the bar low — to confuse a rapper not falling off with still being peak — and that's why once-great rappers can get away with increasingly mediocre-to-outright bad projects, as long as the downward inclination isn't too steep and they throw a few references into their 90s shit with some decent features. It's just one rock-solid blast after another, each one showcasing the involved parties at their sharpest and mightiest. Czarface Meets Ghostface won't shake up any lives, and if we're being perfectly honest not too many of us will be spinning it when the year is out. Review Summary: bomb thrown, blow em sky-high, leave em wide-eyed At a certain point you ask yourself if you expect golden age-rappers to be 'good' or to be 'competent'. That's alright, though - it's not designed as some timeless classic statement. The b-side is better but still not perfect.

Review: Czarface and Ghostface Killah

Czarface meets ghostface

. All three of them are equally adept at delivering gripping narratives as well as razor-sharp lyrical attacks. It's the equivalent of a jam sesh in your friend's garage, easy-going and digestible; two vintage legends kicking rhymes with that funny guy who was beefing with El-P back in the day. So Czarface Meets Ghostface isn't a Twelve Reasons to Die or an Every Hero Needs a Villain, but that actually has a freeing effect. Ghostface Killah and Inspectah Deck, and probably Method Man if we're keeping score, found what I think is the loophole in the system. Ultimately, the rappers' styles seem to complement each other rather than clash. If you go in expecting something legendary you'll be looking for the exit, but if you go in to shoot the shit you might just have some fun yourself.

Fortunately, the same cannot be said of. My copy is really badly pressed. It doesn't skip but i sure can hear the pops. Update: the record store kindly supplied me with a new copy. This one feels heavier than the first one. My feelings about this make it all the more gratifying when great rappers legitimately stay great. At least the bubbles are not really audible.

Review: Czarface and Ghostface Killah

Comic-inspired hip-hop supergroup 's 2018 collaboration with was cool, but it was ultimately somewhat underwhelming, as the masked one just didn't seem to be fully committing to the project, and his presence felt phoned-in. They don't have the razor-sharp editing skills of the very best rappers, but that's okay, because after a few misfires they always come back with a Twelve Reasons to Die or an Every Hero Needs a Villain, shrugging off years of mediocrity like they never happened and sounding like the golden age come alive again as we bear witness. Perhaps wisely, the album doesn't follow a concrete storyline, so there's no burden of having to conform to a particular concept and no obligation to declare a winner or loser. The album's perfectly paced at a brisk 12 tracks, learning from the missteps of Czarface Meets Metal Face by dropping the filler and beat tracks. As always, Ghost is a proud attention hog, his ridiculous vocabulary and surreal humour marking him as one of the most innovative rappers out, even divorced of his recent aptitude for album-wide narratives.

Everyone brings their A-game here, and it feels more like the type of intergalactic battle worthy of the Marvel-style cover art. Sounding free from the burden of expectation from their storied careers, for the first time in a long time, this is the sound of legends cutting loose a little bit. Looks like there are some kind of little bubbles on the b-side. . . . .
