Ghostface announced the album on August 14, and provided a link to The Lost Tapes website, which comes with a pre-order option. Its said that Big Ghost will be the album’s executive producer, but there has been some speculation that Big Ghost is merely an alias for Ghostface himself. A&R Matt “M-Eighty” Markoff insists that Big Ghost is a real person, however.
“This new Ghostface and Big Ghost album is definitely something that is going to blow the minds of Wu-Tang and Hip Hop fans alike,” Markoff told HipHopDX. “Our collective goal in calling it The Lost Tapes was to bring fans back to that Ironman, Supreme Clientele, [Only Built 4] Cuban Linx era. We set out to revive that, update it for 2018 and just like that, we have a certified 2018 Wu-Tang banger on our hands.”
“This album is exactly what Hip Hop needs in 2018 and thankfully, it’s coming from one of the game’s greatest storytellers and a supporting cast of certified legends,” Markoff added. This may come as a surprise to those expecting The Lost Tapes to be similar to Nas’ 2001 album of the same name, which included scrapped songs and unreleased material from previous releases like I Am… Check out The Lost Tapes tracklist below.
