So that’s why Ghostface Killah missed — and lost — a recent court date: because he’s too busy in the booth to bother with a three-year-old copyright case, even if it means paying upwards of $150,000 in statutory damages. Aside from the loooming release of the Wu-Tang Clan’s A Better Tomorrow LP, the rapper now has a solo record on deck for December 9. Backed by the Brooklyn soul band/production team The Revelations and joined by several guest singers (Rell, Tre Williams, Kandace Springs) and MCs (Pharaohe Monch, Kool G Rap, AZ), 36 Seasons is described as “a gut-wrenching journey of double-cross and revenge through the rough and rugged housing projects of New York’s Staten Island … desperate tales from the dark side over soulful boom-bap tracks.”

It’s not the only marquee effort Ghostface is planning for the months ahead, either; according to a recent press conference, he is currently wrapping Blue & Cream, the sequel to career highlight Supreme Clientele. And nothing against 36 Seasons, but it’s supposed to be “one of the best albums” he’s ever done.

“I think I get better at what I do,” he explained. “I learn. You know what I mean? That’s why with the Blue & Cream Supreme Clientele 2 it’s gonna be a whole different ball game, baby. I just gotta hope my samples get cleared. I just don’t got the people on it that I want to get on it because I’ve been doing so much other stuff like that … After that I’m done with it.”
