The Green Ghost Project (Explicit)
by Various Artists
Released: Feb 2010
Label: Invasion Music Group
This is a great pairing. Styles P is one of the most renowned New York lyricists, delivering hardcore vignettes of New York street life with gruff, concise lines; Green Lantern has become the go-to mixtape DJ for NYC's heavyweight lyricists, from Nas to Immortal Technique. The Green Ghost Project does not disappoint. The propulsive "Double Trouble" samples Chuck D and teams Styles P with his Lox bandmate Sheek Louch, while the somber, menacing "Time Will Tell" features a stellar verse from Wu Tang maestro Raekwon. This is a treat for fans of true skool hip-hop lyricism.
