Ghostface Killah And Sheek Louch: “This Is No Skinny Jean” Rap
Ghostface and Sheek Louch talk about the hardcore hip hop sound on their upcoming album, and Ghost weighs in on the Action Bronson comparisons.
Members of the Wu-Tang Clan, Ghostface Killah, and D-Block, Sheek Louch, have teamed up to drop their Wu-Block project. Both bring hard-hitting gutter hip hop sounds, and in a recent sit down with Fuse talked about the Ghost/Action Bronson comparisons, and how their upcoming Wu-Block effort is a “no skinny jean” kind of album.
Queens rapper, Action Bronson has a sound and style that often draws comparisons to Ghostface Killah – Bronson even references it on his Blue Chips mixtape. Ghost has no qualms with it, and even admits they have similar styles and says he’s a fan of Action Bronson. When talking about the similarities, Ghost says (via HHDX), “Action Bronson, I heard some stuff from him, he’s dope,” adding, “his vocals sound like my vocals, but he’s not doing it on purpose. He’s cool, though, he’s mad, mad cool.”
When discussing their collabo album, Sheek Louch says fans can expect a “real hip hop” sound, saying he reached out to Ghost and said, “Yo, we really gotta do something together on some real Hip Hop right now.’” Sheek says it’s going to be an album for the hardcore, “I think the streets are gonna love it. We tell everybody every night on stage, ‘This is no skinny jean [shit].”
Ghostface adds that he is pleased with the end result, “When we heard it for the first time all the way down, I was happy..I was really, really happy. There’s nothing out there that’s like it.”
