Czarface Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records
This week on CZARFACE!
After facing off with the nefarious METAL FACE (MF Doom) our hero has to face his greatest challenge yet, the unstoppable GHOSTFACE (Killah). Fortunately for him, he's not alone. 7L, Jeremy Page, Inspectah Deck and Esoteric all offer a helping hand to give CZARFACE a fighting chance.
Will CZARFACE previal? Or will GHOSTFACE have him by the neck? All shall be revealed on CZARFACE meets GHOSTFACE.
East Coast rap’s long-standing fascination with the world of comics bears yet more fruit in Czarface’s lavish Dog Days Of Tomorrow. For their latest trick the union of Boston hard-heads 7L and Esoteric with Wu-Tang’s Inspectah Deck drop a 7” record and a comic book in which they team up with another famous mug in Ghostface Killah to fight some such evil. While Dog Days Of Tomorrow serves as a warm-up for a collaborative LP between the two parties this package is lavish enough to be copped on its own merit.
- Vinyl Double 7" (SIL009-7)

Like Czarface? Like MF Doom? Well then, czech this out: a full-length team-up of the hip-hop heavyweights, following on from a 2015 collaborative track together. The two lyricists trade fantastic sparky lines left right and centre, with additional guest spots from Open Mike Eagle and Vinnie Paz. Sixteen tracks, presented on CD, LP or cassette by Silver Age.
Like the Czarface Meets Metal Face full-length team-up between Czarface and MF Doom but don’t actually like the rhymes and vocals too much? Well then, this instrumental version of the album is for you! All facetiousness aside, this is a great bonus accompaniment to the original record, letting those beats fully shine. Cassette only release from Silver Age.
Czarface is a hip-hop trio that pulls together the talents of Inspectah Deck, 7L and Esoteric. They love their comic-book / super-hero culture, which comes through both in their fluid lyrics and through the frankly incredible artwork for Every Hero Needs A Villain: a full, 70 page comic book comes with both the CD and the Vinyl.
Czarface (Inspectah Deck + 7l & Esoteric) (featuring MF DOOM)
Czarface and MF DOOM recently worked together on the superhero / comic themed Every Hero Needs A Villain. Ka-Bang! is taken from that record, and is accompanied by a new mix, an exclusive track, and instrumentals. DOOM’s flow is strong as ever, and the track is a wonderful swaggering thing, interspersed with comic-esque samples. Pressed to beautiful 10” picture disc on Brick Records.
Czarface is one of those thousands of sub-groups of the mighty Wu-Tang Clan, featuring Esoteric, 7L and Inspectah Deck all working it out together. A Fistful Of Peril grew from a commission from Marvel, and there is a great comic book / pop culture flavour running through these fine funky hip-hop cuts. CD / LP release on Silver Age.
