It's been four years since Styles P has gone Ghost on us (via the DJ Green Lantern collab album, The Green Ghost Project). Now, Holiday Styles, one third of the iconic group the LOX, has teamed up with newly formed NMC Music Group to bring you back into the spiritual realm for his latest, his seventh studio album, Phantom of the Ghost.
With almost two decades of spitting out consistent "ghetto classics," under his belt, SP's self-imposed reincarnation into his piff-passing, fire-spitting, gun-toting alter ego, the Ghost, remains true to the gritty, unapologetic gangsta flow that captivated hip hop heads on his first, A Gangster and a Gentlemen.
And with assistance from Jadakiss, Sheek Louch, Vado, Raheem DeVaughn and more, this album is the answer to the streets' prayers, standing as a viable contender to fill the void for New York rap. Keep reading for a track-by-track look. —Dominique Zonyeé (@DominiqueZonyee)
