The Green Ghost is the kind of handle that just screams “comic-book hero.” Thus, it should comes as no surprise that DJ Green Lantern and LOX emcee Styles P are building anticipation for their forthcoming collaborative LP with an accompanying comic book (unrelated note: “Green Ghost” is also the name of one of the weirdest-looking board games I’ve ever seen). Not that the project needs that kind of (admittedly cool) gimmick to get heads’ attention – if previously-featured cut Pablo Doe didn’t convince you that the East Coast natives had some damned good tunes up their sleeve, final leak Shadows should do the trick. Here, Statik Selektah serves up a delicately tuneful beat Chipmunk-sampled from The Alan Parsons Project’s ‘82 single Old and Wise as Styles delivers his poetic take on life, death, and the streets. Green Lantern tops it all off with some authentic cuts, sampling vocal snippets from Biggie, DMX and Styles himself. If you’re digging this reflective track, you can find more on The Green Ghost Project when it drops next Tuesday, February 2.
