Sour Soul (Instrumentals)
Sought after instrumentals for critically acclaimed album Sour Soul, by Toronto jazz/hip hop band BADBADNOTGOOD and Staten Island rap champ, Ghostface Killah. Inspired by 1960’s and 70’s music and taking inspiration from the recording techniques and production of that era, they embrace live instrumentation and zero sampling. BBNG in collaboration with producer Frank Dukes created a dramatic, cinematic musical staging for Ghostface’s vivid storytelling.
