We’re admittedly suckers for a great concept album with Outkast’s “ATLiens” and Deltron 3030’s self-titled epic topping our list. So it’s surprise that Ghostface Killah and Adrian Younge’s brutal tale of gangsters, betrayal and one vengeful soul hunting the twelve most powerful crime lords in the World is an album that we can get behind.

Usually this is the part where we recommend three essential songs off the album, but since it’s a concept album make sure to listen to the whole thing so you get the full effect.
