In a new interview, Ghostface Killah claims he will be the guiding force behind an upcoming Wu-Tang Clan album. While speaking with HipHopDX, the Staten Island rapper revealed how RZA agreed to give him control over the new project.
"RZA put the ball in my hand," he explained. "He said 'Yo, I want you to do it,' and I been wanting to do it, and that’s a big test for me right there."
Ghost went on to say that he would begin work on the album himself before bringing in the rest of the group.
"I’m going to do my part first and let them know what I did and then have them listen to that and follow my lead," he elaborated. "It’s like how they do in sports with athletes. It’s like alright, just follow my lead."
In addition to the Wu album, the rapper also talked about how he was planning a sequel to his classic 2000 solo album, Supreme Clientele. He mentioned Rick Ross and Mobb Deep as potential features, but did not let any other details loose.
In addition to talking about music, Ghost discussed a number of other topics during the wide-ranging interview. He had some choice words for infamous "pharma-bro" Martin Shkreli, with whom he traded shots earlier this year. "If I ever would’ve seen that dude, I might’ve literally smacked his f*****g head off," he said.
Ghost also discussed new rappers he's feeling, including Drake, Uncle Murda, and ScHoolboy Q, the last of whom he met for the first time only a few days ago.
