Ghostface Killah - Together Baby

Posted about 6 years ago
The Apollo Kids

If you weren’t completely feeling Wu-Tang representative Ghostface Killah‘s detour into modern R&B territory on Ghostdini: The Wizard of Poetry... well, then I don’t get you, because that album was dope. Regardless, I think we can all agree that it’s good to hear the rap legend back to his old tricks on Together Baby, the lead single off his forthcoming follow-up. Starks is still all about the ladies here, but the overall effect is grittier than anything on his last effort, with Yakub serving up an instrumental that ricochets between an old-school soul hook and a claustrophobic brass loop (both sampled from The Intruders’ Together) as Iron Man offers his version of the ideal night at the club: getting tipsy on ‘Jimmy Neutrons’ (which are apparently a mix of Patron and Nuvo), dancing and, of course, spitting game to all the fly honeys at the spot. The moral of this story? In Ghost’s own words, “When it comes to baggin’ a chick, don’t be aggressive / I get girls, y’all fellas is desperate.” The Apollo Kids drops December 14; I know what I’m getting all the Wu Tang-lovers in my life for the holidays…
