Wu-Tang Clan’s members often invoked some permutation of Matthew 20:16, such as Killah Priest’s solo turn on “B.I.B.L.E.”: “The first shall be last, and the last shall be first.” This applies well to the great Ghost Deini, since he was the first of the original nine to be heard on 36 Chambers—and, artistically speaking, is pretty much the last man standing (Raekwon’s solid outings and RZA’s hacky directorial work notwithstanding). GFK is now in that rarefied 10-plus-album zone few hiphop soloists get to—and even in that small circle, he’s among the most consistent and forward moving. If you haven’t listened for a while, the Wally Champ’s 2010s output includes, among other things, a couple of ace album-length collaborations with lauded live musicians: Twelve Reasons to Die (with LA’s vintage savant Adrian Younge) and Sour Soul (with reverent Toronto jazz instrumentalists BadBadNotGood).
