Ghostface Killah & BADBADNOTGOOD – Gunshowers (ft. Elzhi)

Instrumental jazz fusion trio BBND released their third album – aptly titled III – earlier this year. And although the result was somewhat unbalanced, tracks like “CS60”, “Can’t Leave the Night” and “Since You Asked Kindly” curved III towards being largely favorable. Less than half-a-year later, the trio announced a new album – this time a collaborative effort with hip hop-legend and Wu-Tang Clansman Ghostface Killah – and a new track “Gunshowers” to mark the occasion. The instrumental are slightly more traditional and funk rooted than what I would normally expect from BBND, but it works damn good underneath Ghostface’s and Elhzi’s lyrically dense – and intense – verses. Expect a whole album of this early next year when Sour Soul drops.
