Everyone has been praising Kendrick Lamar for his lyricism and storytelling on his most recent project and deservedly so. However, people must not overlook one of the best of all time. Ghostface Killah not only came up with own original story but he put it in an album, 12 Reasons to Die, which includes today’s Song of the Day.
“Rise of the Black Suits” is the second track from the album and is produced by mastermind Adrian Younge. Chronicling Tony Stark’s drug trade and demise from the DeLuca’s, the crime family who killed him, “Rise of the Black Suits” is unapologetically old school. This joint is storytelling at its peak and the entire project deserves an intricate listen.
Listen to the original version of “Rise of the Black Suits” below along with the official music video.
