Wu-Tang Clan’s Ghostface Killah has announced plans to hit the recording booth and release three new albums heading into next year.
Details on the albums were released on the Internet Tuesday (October 12).
Aside from his work on Wu-Massacre and a few guest spots, it’s been a while since we’ve heard new music from Wu-Tang favorite Ghostface Killah. The rapper’s last solo release was 2009’s Ghostdini: Wizard of Poetry in Emerald City, a weird, sexed-up R&B experiment. Fortunately, the rapper appears to be returning to form with three new albums on the horizon. The first is an album due out on December 14 called The Apollo Kids. Ghostface announced the record in a tweet earlier today (October 12), and while little else is known in terms of details — like if this is a compilation or a proper studio album — his 2000 hit “Apollo Kids” stands as one of his most universally loved songs.

Ghost also hit up Twitter to confirm one of his new forthcoming projects.
“New Album “The Apollo Kids” Dropping December 14th!”
“Since the face been revealed, game got real!”
“APOLLO KIDS LIVE TO SPIT THE REAL! December 14th, Cop That!” (Ghostface Killah’s Twitter)
Prior to today, Ghost said he was putting together two separate albums.
It would figure that this news would be released several hours after I read an interview with Ghostface wherein he said he was working on two albums — Blue & Cream and Supreme Clientele 2. He didn’t reveal anything beyond the album titles, but it appeared that he was at least somewhat close to finishing up Blue & Cream. But then, a mere three hours later, he took to Twitter to announce a completely different album, The Apollo Kids, will be released Dec. 14. Further details on this project are unknown. (Prefix Mag)
Earlier this year, Ghost released his collaboration album, Wu-Massacre.
