    This album is crazy. It's 2013, and I can honestly say I've never heard an album like this. I'm not saying there aren't any out there, but it's a first for me. I don't even know how to describe it. It's like think about a crime drama/supernatural novel that's written in rhyme form. Then think about that novel being dictated over an old school horror movie score. That's how this shit comes off. It's tight, but you get a "What possessed them to come up with this shit?" type of feeling. lol

    One thing I'll say, is that I don't want to hear anyone say Ghost ain't the best Rap Storyteller after this. Plenty of people make story tracks. This dude made a story album. And I'm not talking about like with Good Kid Mad City where there is an underlying narrative but the songs merely relate to that narrative and don't really convey it. With this album, the songs actually tell the story for the most part. You get the narrative by listening to the songs.

    If you want to hear another dope-as-fuck story album, go listen to Sticky Fingaz "Blacktrash: The Autobiography of Kirk Jones". That's just one of the illest and most underrated albums ever produced. The whole thing literally follows Kirk Jones through his escapades in the streets and in jail.

    I duped this thread here by accident.

    http://community.allhiphop.com/discussion/493544/ghostface-adrian-younge-twelve-reasons-to-die-album-stream-on-npr#latest

    I figured no one posted it yet because it wasn't on the first page or stickied... but i was forgetting this is The Reason, a place where niggas would rather gossip about a catfight between Kanye and Ray-J.

    lol Yeah, this shit didn't last on the front page anytime. That's crazy considering what kinda threads stay on the front page for days at a time.

    This album has been discussed quite a bit on here though. I even posted a link to a site where you can stream the whole album

    As for radio, dude hasn't been on the radio in years. Hell, even when the Wu was at it's biggest, they weren't the most radio friendly.
