Ghostface Killah is gearing up for his first solo LP since 2015’s Twelve Reasons to Die II with The Lost Tapes, which is slated to release next month (Oct. 5). The project will be exclusively produced by Big Ghost and is sure to be a star-studded affair. On Thursday (Sept. 20), Ghostface unleashes the album’s second single with a cinematic visual to go alongside “Buckingham Palace.”
The 48-year-old connects with Kxng Crooked, Benny the Butcher, and .38 Spesh for the hard-hitting track. DirtyDiggs handles the visual’s creative direction to helm the clip that takes viewers behind-the-scenes of a riotous Wu-Tang Clan performance.
“‘Buckingham Palace’ focuses on Royalty. Me, my fam and my regime represent the Gods,” the Wu-Tang rapper tells 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.”
The Lost Tapes is loaded with legendary cameos across the 13-track project including the likes of Snoop Dogg, E-40, Big Daddy Kane, Raekwon, Masta Killa, Sheek Louch, and a special introduction courtesy of NYC-bred actor Michael Rapaport.
