Adrian Younge & Ghostface Killah-King Of New York Featuring Raekwon

Adrian Younge and Ghostface Killah’s Twelve Reasons To Die II sequel came out today. “King Of New York” featuring Raekwon and Younge’s soul music meets spaghetti western styled production is reminiscent of the Wu-Tang Clan. Younge says,”The 12 Reasons to Die Two saga continues on the streets of NY where Lester Kane played by Raekwon has been deemed the top gangster in NY 1974 and this is the pinnacle of his career. This is how I envisioned a song would sound if Ennio Morricone and The Rza composed in Hip Hop record in 2015.”
