‘Czarface Meets Ghostface’ makes its anachronistic approach clear from the start: this is gonna be some weird Wu-Tang-flavoured shit.


It's just one rock-solid blast after another, each one showcasing the involved parties at their sharpest and mightiest.

FLOOD Magazine

A twelve-track saga loaded with menacing beats and ’90-style boom-bap flows guaranteed to satisfy nostalgic hip-hop heads yearning for the genre’s golden era.


Sounding free from the burden of expectation from their storied careers, for the first time in a long time, this is the sound of legends cutting loose a little bit.


From a bar-for-bar standpoint, the rhymes on here are better than a lot of today’s modern offerings but it’s missing the menacing attitude which is often times half the battle.

Crack Magazine

The collective take turns spitting trash like a group of duelling Kaiju, but maybe Ghost is still not quite at his absolute peak.

The Needle Drop

Czarface Meets Ghostface finds everyone besides 7L punching below their weight.

This was super enjoyable. Powers and stuff is probably the best rap track on the year so far. Czar and Ghost are both in peak form for this album. I actually found this more entertaining than Czarface Meets Metalface. Czar and Ghost just seem to have better chemistry.

Favs: Powers and Stuff, Mongolian Beef, Back at Ringside, Super Soldier Serum

Least Fav: Iron Claw
ngl i'm kinda pissed they couldn't do justice to MF DOOM with an album cover as good as this one..

Extremely enjoyable, lighthearted and fun Hip-Hop record. The synthy bass lines add so much and they're easily the best thing about this album. I love GFK's performances on this and he really brings a strong punch to the theme. Cartoony-Villain concepts in Hip-Hop albums are always welcomed by me, and Czarface surely did great work on implementing that theme to this project.

Damn this album...
The beats, never overwhelming, never taking over the track and just intriguing enough to keep you in your seat wanting more. The flow and the lyrics are something to behold.

Best: Powers and Stuff, Masked Superstars, Super Soldier Serum, Listen To The Colour

Weakest: The King Heard Voices
Neither party are breaking new ground on this collaboration, but that isn't the objective here. Like last year's Czarface Meets Metalface, Czarface Meets Metalface sets out to deliver a satisfying and tight rap experience that emphasizes fun over pretty much anything else, but I'd argue that this record is more successful. The production is much more memorable with its hard-hitting bass and heavy beats, and Czarface and Ghostface just have more tangible chemistry throughout the project, making ... read more
While the production on this album is definitely a great highlight with the comic book superhero theme to it, the tracklist can occasionally feel quite samey and it doesn't feel like the artists are performing to their full potential at times. Not like I found this project draining or anything, I enjoyed the majority of the album. Cool stuff.
