LIKE THAT (FEAT. NE-YO),” GAIN MOMENTUM WU-TANG CLAN ON REUNION TOUR NOW!! DATES
ANNOUNCED FOR NATIONAL SOLO HEADLINING TOUR!
“Back Like That,” Ghostface Killah’s soulful new single, already
gathering heat from radio and the streets, Ghost has announced a new release
date of March 28 for his highly-anticipated new album Fishscale.
Featuring Def Jam’s rapidly-rising young star Ne- Yo, “Back Like That”
finds Ghost in a familiar role, bemoaning a vengeful ex who’s been seen around
with a bitter rival: “Yo, I should just bark on you, burn your car on you.” The
hot new video for “Back” premiered on MTV2 on Sunday night with a half-hour
“Making The Video” special. The “Making the Video” special will re-air on
Tuesday 2/14 at 8:30am and on Wednesday 2/15 at 5:30pm. On MTV proper, the “Back
Like That” video premieres tonight on DFX.
“Ghostface is one of the most original hip-hop artists around,” Ne-Yo
recently told MTV News. “He’s a legend. Just to be considered for the song was
an honor. He’s true hip-hop.” Ne-Yo’s smash single “So Sick” recently
reached #1 on the Rhythmic charts, and is currently #3 at urban and #6 on the
Billboard Hot 100.
Armed with production from the late J. Dilla, Just Blaze, MF DOOM, Pete
Rock, MadLib, and many others, the broad shouldered Ghost stands ready and
willing to carry the Wu Tang’s burden and return rap to its proper course.
“Fishscale is just me showing that I can still ball with the best of them,” says
Ghost. “With each album I learn, so this album has the most knowledge of all of
Songs like “Kilo,” featuring old friend Raekwon, and “Be Easy,”
the Pete Rock mixtape burner released last fall, demonstrate this knowledge with
their effortless brilliance. Free of intoxicants (“I haven’t smoked in over 2
years,” says the one time psychedelic fanatic.), Ghost’s flow is focused and
free. “This album is gonna put me back on top of everyone’s list,” he says.
“Ain’t nobody approaching they music with the care that I do.”
With the recording of Fishscale complete, Ghost – a seasoned veteran of the
road – is out on tour with his Wu-Tang brethren throughout the month of
February, and will launch a 32-date North American headlining run March 5 in
Pittsburgh. Stay tuned for more info on hip-hop’s Ironman, Ghostface Killah.
