    12 Reasons To Die Tour: Ghostface Killah with Adrian Younge, Venice Dawn & Special Guest Moe Pope

     Ghostface Killah’s prominence in hip hop has grown steadily over his 20-plus year career including recent high-profile appearances on Kanye West’s Cruel Summer, the critically-acclaimed soundtrack to RZA’s film The Man With The Iron Fists and the new Wu-Block album. Twelve Reasons To Die catches the gifted MC at the height of his lyrical prowess, and to celebrate this album announcement, Soul Temple is offering a free download of the first single, “The Rise of the Ghostface Killah.” Adrian Younge represents the next generation of black music producers. Twelve Reasons is Younge’s first project immersed in the world of rap and hip hop, and his aim is to deliver an organic re-appropriation of hip-hop circa the mid-90s. Younge’s previous releases, the Black Dynamite (2009) soundtrack and Something About April (2011) touched on psychedelia, ‘blaxploitation,’ and the cinematic soul of the 1970s.

    Moe Pope, originally from Boston, MA, is an indie hip-hop artist, songwriter and contemporary painter. As a lyricist, Pope chronicles the stories of his life and his community by touching upon subjects like fatherhood, relationships, and the human condition. His new album Let The Right Ones In was released on January 23, 2013.
