Twelve Reasons to Die II may be a Ghostface Killah album, but fellow Wu-Tang Clan affiliate Raekwon gives reliably solid turns on five of the 13 songs. The Chef’s gruesome lyrics on early track “Return Of The Savage,” are complemented by that tune’s sudden organ note jabs, along with Ghost’s spirited but simplistic chorus chanting and his competent,

In the early 1990s, a dark force began to rise in Los Angeles, fueled by classic ’80s New York boom-bap and equally inspired by evil-tinged rock groups from the 1970s, like Black Sabbath.

Immortal Technique: Revolutionary Vol. 1
Originally self-released in 2001, the plain-spoken politics (the title of this album is not to be taken lightly) and barebones production of Revolutionary, Vol. 1 missed MTV and Rap City entirely, surprise surprise.
