A couple years ago (or something) we started hearing that Ghostface was going to record a whole R&B album in which he would sing—as best as he could—over what we can only imagine would be some really great grimy soul instrumentals. More than anything, that album seemed like a pipe dream, but Def Jam hotshot Lenny Santiago knows otherwise. Apparently the album will not feature Ghost singing on every song, but will pair him up with singers like Estelle, Raheem DeVaughn, Lloyd (awesome) and John Legend (no one asked for that pairing, but we’ll reserve judgment). While this is exciting news, we can’t help but be a little disappointed. Ghostface singing has become one of the most endearingly weird idiosyncrasies of dude’s already weird career. The bright side? The album is called The Wizard of Poetry. Beat that, everyone else in the music industry! (via Nah Right)—Sam Hockley-Smith
