Few MCs can break into character quite like Ghostface Killah and Raekwon the Chef. The two Staten Islanders, and Wu-Tang Clan lyrical mercenaries have played the parts of a man battling his diamond-encrusted watch, a just-released convict home after three years up-state, or adding to their favorite Martin Scorsese or Mario Puzo storyline.

“Resurrection Morning” builds upon this rich tradition. In his Twelve Reasons To Die II (July 10) mind-frame, the Hip-Hop-meets-Spaghetti Western protagonist, Ghostface Killah encounters a man on the verge of taking his own life. That part is voiced by Raekwon, who offers a first-person perspective to the situation detailed by G.F.K. Complete with Bilal vocals, the Adrian Younge-produced track is something all its own—more Jedi Mind Tricks’ Stoupe than Wu-Tang RZA. However, for two MCs (and one producer) constantly releasing material, this operatic moment is a testament to their creativity and originality.

What transpires? Press play.
