Apollo Kids

The most prolific and productive record-maker in the Wu-Tang Clan pantheon,
Def Jam core artist Ghostface Killah has completed his 16th career album - and
his 6th solo album for Def Jam - APOLLO KIDS

In addition to guest appearances by Wu-Tang Clansmen Raekwon, GZA,
Method Man, and Cappadonna, APOLLO KIDS also boasts star turns by
Redman, Busta Rhymes, Sheek Louch, The Game, Jim Jones, and many more.

APOLLO KIDS is - amazingly - Ghost's third original studio project in just over
one year. It follows up his previous solo album, The Wizard Of Poetry (released
September 2009), in which he attracted an A-list of duet partners including
fellow Def Jam artists Kanye West & Ne-Yo (on the closing track, "Back Like
That"), John Legend, Raheem 'Radio' DeVaughn, Fabolous & Shareefa, Lloyd,
Vaughn Anthony & Estelle, and others.

Prior to The Wizard's release, Ghost spent July-August 2009 on the road with
Method Man and Redman, keeping the Wu-Tang Clan spirit alive and well on the
month-long, 21-city Foot Print in Hip-Hop Tour. The tour was attended by Ghost's
legions of fans, who have been tuning in to The World According to Pretty Toney
long enough to know that "he doesn't so much deliver rhymes as narrate
graphically detailed scenes, rife with violence, passion and a little humour"

More recently, Wu Massacre (March 2010), a collaboration with Method Man and
Raekwon, was as close to a W-TC reunion on record as history has seen in the
three years since the group's last album, 8 Diagrams. Wu Massacre was a
collectors' dream, with three separate album covers - one for Ghost, one for
Meth, one for Raekwon - created by famed DC and Marvel graphic master Chris
Bachalo. 300 randomly distributed copies of Wu Massacre contained Bachalo's
original un-inked pencil sketch of one of the three explosive color covers.
Those ultra-rare inserts now rank among the Maltese Falcons of hip-hop limited
editions.

Ghostface Killah is always a dynamite performer...and in the Clan, his blade cuts deeper than most. He's loud and fierce...and his newest album, "Apollo Kids," is another Wu-Tang winner.

"Purified Thoughts" is a great opener. The lyrics and production set the tone for the entire album. As usual, GZA and Killah Priest bring wisdom to the table.

"Superstar" is a good track (although the hook can be a little annoying). It's fast and upbeat and Busta Rhymes' verse is unique.

"Black Tequila" keeps things moving. You can always count on Ghostface to tell a vivid story.

"Drama" is a pretty good track. (The lyrics are sweet...but the production is something to be desired.)

"2getha Baby," the album's lead single, changes tempo a few times, which is cool. It's a great track.
