Ghostface and Sheek Louch talk about the hardcore hip hop sound on their upcoming album, and Ghost weighs in on the Action Bronson comparisons.
Members of the Wu-Tang Clan, Ghostface Killah, and D-Block, Sheek Louch, have teamed up to drop their Wu-Block project.Â Both bring hard-hitting gutter hip hop sounds, and in a recent sit down with Fuse talked about the Ghost/Action Bronson comparisons, and how their upcoming Wu-Block effort is a â€œno skinny jeanâ€ kind of album.
Queens rapper, Action Bronson has a sound and style that often draws comparisons to Ghostface Killah â€“ Bronson even references it on his Blue Chips mixtape.Â Ghost has no qualms with it, and even admits they have similar styles and says heâ€™s a fan of Action Bronson. Â When talking about the similarities, Ghost says (via HHDX), â€œAction Bronson, I heard some stuff from him, heâ€™s dope,â€ adding, â€œhis vocals sound like my vocals, but he’s not doing it on purpose. He’s cool, though, he’s mad, mad cool.â€
When discussing their collabo album, Sheek Louch says fans can expect a â€œreal hip hopâ€ sound, sayingÂ he reached out to Ghost and said, â€œYo, we really gotta do something together on some real Hip Hop right now.’â€ Â Sheek says itâ€™s going to be an album for the hardcore, â€œI think the streets are gonna love it. We tell everybody every night on stage, ‘This is no skinny jean [shit].â€
Ghostface adds that he is pleased with the end result, “When we heard it for the first time all the way down, I was happy..I was really, really happy. There’s nothing out there that’s like it.”
