Narratively speaking, “Rise of the Ghostface Killah” is the moment in Twelve Reasons to Die when our favorite masked avenger has risen from the grave to exact his revenge against the DeLuca’s. While his rhymes alone paint a bloody picture, collaborator Adrian Younge has taken that violence to a new level in the accompanying video. As RZA and a Satanist cult bring mayhem to a Catholic church, Ghostface (who, remember, is a ghost by now) gets to the task of stabbing practically everyone in sight. The whole thing’s like a hip-hop version of The Exorcist or Rosemary’s Baby, except the fact that GFK makes Regan MacNeil look like a cuddly wuddly kitten by comparison. Watch (in horror) below.
