Ghostface Follows the Wizard of Poetry Title To Its Logical Visual Conclusion
Who knew he meant it literally when Ghostface told New York the concept for his upcoming all-r&b record, Wizard of Poetry, back in July?
- I wanted to base it around The Wizard of Oz. I was passing the chuckle patches and all that stuff like that, doing everything till I got to the Emerald City, and meeting the person that was like God, you know what I mean? That's what I was gonna do: fall asleep where the chuckle patches was at, under a tree or something, and here go these skits, and they laughing and all this shit. I could have been dreaming, or whatever the case may be. But things had to change, 'cause I couldn't take the same likeness of that movie and put it on my album 'cause then it's gonna cause a problem. But I still kept the Wizard of Poetry and Emerald City.
Which is pretty much verbatim what ended up happening, it turns out, plus or minus some value-added female chuckle patch companions.
