Ghostface - Apollo Kids (album)

I noticed DJ Premier recommending the new “Apollo Kids” album by Ghostface with the following words:

“I just heard Ghostface Killahs new LP “Apollo Kids”…if u love raw and uncut ghetto shit, get it 2mrrw when it comes out…..Lovin it!”

I checked the album, and yes, Preem’s right like always. The producer named Frank Dukes is really stepping his game up nowadays.. Props!
