Wu-Tang Wednesday: Ghostface Killah, GZA, & Killah Priest - "Purified Thoughts"

What, you thought you weren't going to see me? I may be the Osiris of this ish, but that doesn't keep work and night class from piling up. I apologize for posting so near the witching hour, but technically 11:30 is still in time to celebrate what remains of this revered Wu-Tang Wednesday. I'll leave you with a quick post before going into hibernation.

In addition to having the best moniker in this or any other genre (my next dog will be named in his honor), Ghostface Killah has carried the brunt of the Wu-Tang legacy over the course of the past decade. While Supreme Clientele, Fishscale, and More Fish deservingly draw the majority of the praise, 2010's Apollo Kids is an underrated album in its own right that represented a return to the gritty Wu sound.

The lead-off track is no exception and is reminiscent of OB4CL. As always Ghostface slays it, while GZA/Genius and the ever-underrated Killah Priest provide superb guest verses. Again, I apologize for the brevity of the post, but I'm going to go reacquaint myself with the cousin of death. Should I wake from my slumber, I'll make it up with a lengthy post tomorrow.

Peace, Love, & Protect Thy Neck,
Ghostface Noah
