Fans who have been waiting for the past 2 years can finally rejoice - Adrian Younge and Ghostface Killah's 'Twelve Reasons To Die II' is finally here. To up the ante this time Ghostface has added a very important lyrical companion to the mix; Raekwon. The chemistry cemented two decades ago on Rae's classic 'Only Built 4 Cuban Linx' is as strong as ever. On the topic of chemistry executive producer and Wu-Tang patriarch The RZA returns to Part II as the story's narrator. The storyline for Part II is vividly brought to life with the help of Younge's never-endingly evocative and unique brand of cinematic, psychedelic soul. The music - on which Younge hiimself plays upwards of 10 instruments on certain songs - was recorded strictly on analog tape, to bring out the true grit of the 70s era that provides the 'Twelve Reasons' backdrop. 'Twelve Reasons To Die II' is another heavy feather in the caps of all involved, especially Younge and Ghost, who again poured their skills an intellect into the dramatic and engaging tale. It all fits perfectly into the Wu-Tang family tree as well as Younge's always-expanding musical universe, which now proudly relies on Linear Labs to house it.
