Wu-Tang Clan rapper Ghostface Killah and producer Adrian Younge announced they're teaming up for a sequel to their 2013 Mafioso-rap epic Twelve Reasons to Die, titled Twelve Reasons to Die II. They released a single for the project featuring Ghostface's fellow Wu-Tang member Raekwon called "Let the Record Spin."

The album is a sequel in more than just name. In Twelve Reasons to Die, Ghostface played a mob enforcer in '60s Italy who was murdered by the Deluca family and had his remains pressed into vinyl -- when played, the vinyl resurrects the enforcer and allows him to take his revenge. According to Rolling Stone, the new album picks up the story a decade later in New York, with Raekwon playing a powerful crime boss that resurrects Ghostface again to fight the reformed Delucas.

The album is due out on July 10 via Linear Labs. As well as Raekwon, the album will feature RZA, Bilal and Vince Staples. It is Ghostface's second album of 2015 so far, after Sour Soul, a collaboration with jazz group BadBadNotGood
