On October 5th, Ghostface Killah will be releasing his first album since 2015’s Twelve Reasons to Die II, The Lost Tapes—a collaborative effort with producer Big Ghost.
With two weeks to go before the release, the Wu-Tang legend hits us with a video for the project’s second single, “Buckingham Palace” with KXNG Crooked, Benny the Butcher and .38 Spesh.
“‘Buckingham Palace’ focuses on royalty. Me, my fam and my regime represent the Gods,” GFK told Billboard. “Survival of the fittest. Getting it by any means necessary and striving to maintain our influence on the game; everything that encompasses preserving the legacy and our prestigious throne.”
Directed by DirtyDiggs, the music video is comprised of show footage from a Wu-Tang concert mixed with some smokey behind-the-scenes action.
How nasty is the back-and-forth from Benny and Spesh?!
“Benny and the entire Griselda camp definitely got the torch right now and his style is impeccable,” Ghost told XXL when the song originally dropped. “Spesh and [Kool] G Rap just dropped an album and any MC that can go bar for bar with KGP has my admiration. And Crooked I is one of those MCs that’s universally respected across the board and regarded as one of the West Coast’s elite. Put it all together and you got a marvelous feast for your eardrums no doubt.”
