After meeting during a taping of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, English rocker Elvis Costello and the legendary Roots crew decided to record an album. And with just under a week before the collaborative Wise Up Ghost LP hits shelves (and iTunes), NPR has given us an early listen. Click here and hear the 12-track album (which features zero Black Thought vocals) which reminisces on the "early-70s cinematic funk of Curtis Mayfield and Isaac Hayes."

    Dope album, but I'm really disappointed about the lack of Black Thought verses. There's a few tracks he would have tore the fuck up.
