Ghostface Killah – Save me dear

I was talking to friend at the weekend and he told me he thought that hip hop was under represented on the blog so far, given my affection for the genre. On reflection I have to agree.

My trouble is that even though hip hop changed the way I view music irrevocably I feel conflicted about it. I am a sucker for beats, and hip hop is full of them. However, it can also be full of intollerance and profanity (which I am less keen on). Ultimately though I am just a sucker for a great hook.

Ghostface is a favourite. He writes clever rhymes full of wit and humour. He is an alumni of Staten Island’s finest, the Wu Tang Clan. This particular track samples an awesome tune that I have already posted.
