On The Totally Adorable Video For Ghostface’s “Baby”


It’s gonna take me way longer than the Sept. 29 release date to get over the fact that Ghostface’s new album is called The Wizard of Poetry. Here, in a slightly less juvenile clip than Raekwon’s latest, he serenades a young lass in the first verse, discusses the side effects of her pregnancy in the second (“I want some Popeye chicken,” excellently lip-synced), and is scrambling to get her to the hospital, I Love Lucy style, by clip’s end, Raheem DeVaughn waxing nasally sentimental throughout. A whole album of this, I don’t know, but this is very sweet. The early ’90s having come and gone, he will probably not shoot you for saying so.
