We've been psyched about Ghostface Killah's new record 36 Seasons since he first started sharing singles, but we're especially excited to be able to sample the whole record now, a week in advance of its physical release, via NPR. The album format's essential to this one - the whole record tells a classic, heroic story of a guy who returns from a time away to find his neighborhood different, his girl with another man, and the local characters increasingly shady - it's kinda like The Odyssey! His foils are "played" by guys like AZ, Pharaohe Monch, G Rap, and more. Cut some time out of your day and check it out below via NPR right now.
