Big Ghost continues his run of successful projects with a new album, alongside Rochester rapper, 38 Spesh. Think luxurious neck-snapping, sometimes soul tinged beats, coupled with grimy, hard-boiled street raps and you’ll be right on the money. There are features too, including Eto, Black Geez and Street Justice. A Bullet For Every Heathen is available to listen to below and you can cop a physical version over on Bandcamp.

To celebrate the 15th anniversary of Jay Z’s The Black Album, Big Ghost Ltd. has revisited the monumental project to add some fresh perspective. Ol’ Volcano Hands himself says that the remixes aimed to create a version of the album “where A-List celebrity producers played no part…n it was no politics involved nahmean. No hype or pitches to the artist from whoever whoever… Just the feel of that early 00s shit when the R.O.C. had established itself as the pinnacle n the heartbeat of the culture n the greatest rapper of all time pump faked his retirement”. If that sounds like a winning formula, that’s cos it is, as Ghost manages to pull off a successful venture into what maybe considered hallowed turf. Cuts on the album come from Giallo Point and DJ Grouch. You can stream The Black Album Revisited below, with downloads available via Bandcamp. Read the rest of this entry »

Recognize Ali returns with a new project, following on from his God’s Vision LP back in March. The Outlawed promises to deliver more of the same level of lyricism as its predecessors, if the tasters we’ve been given so far are anything to go by, including the recent Mug Shots track. The beat selection is on point, with the likes of Big Ghost Ltd, Farma Beats, El Ay and Frank Grimes all providing tight contributions. There are also some decent guest spots too, as Ali is joined by Da Flyy Hooligan, Daniel Son and Estee Nack, among others. You can stream a couple of tracks below, but to download the full project or cop one of the physicals, head over to Greenfield Music. Read the rest of this entry »

Rumours of a collaboration between Ghostface Killah and Big Ghost have been circulating online for a while, with the latter confirming the project’s existence earlier this year.

Big Face Frankies is just one of the gems to be found on the recent album from CRIMEAPPLE and Big Ghost Ltd. Aguardiente – named after the sugar-based liquor – was released to well-deserved acclaim last month and continues the gold run that the blogger turned producer has been creating, since his debut with Griselda back in 2015. It marks another success for CRIMEAPPLE too, following on from last year’s Metraletta project. The video was made by Mercenary Productions and the album is out now on iTunes.

For those of you patiently waiting for the imminent collaboration between CRIMEAPPLE and Big Ghost Ltd., yesterday saw the release of a nice little appetiser to keep you satisfied until the main course is served up next month. Aguardiente Season features a medley of three previously released Big Ghost beats, which the rising New Jersey MC proceeds to murder in cold blood. You can stream the crime scene below. More news on the full Aguardiente release coming soon.

Big Ghost has been making some serious heaters over the past couple of years, most notably his project with Westside Gunn & Conway and last year’s collab with Vic Spencer. So the internet went into a bit of a reasonable hype last week when he announced a new partnership with the Wave lord himself, Hus Kingpin. The full Cocaine Beach release is coming on 1 June and today we got our first morsel, in the form of Coke Casa. No surprises it’s straight grade A uncut rawness. You can stream the track below and stay tuned for more news on the album coming soon. Read the rest of this entry »

Big Ghost is like the gift that keeps on giving. Not only does he stay dropping knowledge nuggets with the eloquence of 57 pimps, he also brings his production talents to the masses on regular occasions and each time is like an awakening. Last time it was the Griselda boys and we all know how that’s worked out since then. Now he’s back with Chicago rapper Vic Spencer and their accomplished LP, The Ghost of Living.
Eleven tracks deep and each one seems like the perfect union, with 70’s funk breaks blending with smoke fuelled bars. The project is out now and will make the perfect gift for that rap fiend in your life. You can stream the LP below, with downloads available on Bandcamp. Read the rest of this entry »
