Ghostface Killah – Love Don’t Live Here No More

Ghostface Killah – Love Don’t Live Here No More (Feat. Kandace Springs). Dennis Coles better known by his stage name Ghostface Killah, is an American rapper and prominent member of the Wu-Tang Clan. The season of the Wu continues as Ghostface Killah ready to release a solo piece of his own. Dubbed 36 Seasons, the new release is “a revenge concept album” with Ghost reimagined as a superhero-like, vigilante character returning to save his hood from crooked authorities and decay. He’s not alone on his journey. Brooklyn soul band/production team The Revelations will orchestrate the musical backdrops and everything would be live. The Revelations Wes Mingus described part of the process: “It was decided at the beginning that this would be a very non-traditional, more organic hip-hop album – one where all of the sounds created would be by real players, on real instruments, while still maintaining the spirit and boom-bap purity of classic hip-hop. No digital keyboards or samplers were used. Everything would be analog. All “samples” would be extracted from original music performed by live musicians”

It all sounds auspicious enough, right? Listen to the first release from the project, “Love Don’t Live Here No More,” where GFK emerges as a man returning from a nine year hiatus to find his lady’s replaced him and so the story begins. It’s stanza one of in a total of fifteen and, if anyone could weave a rapping audiobook, it’s Tony Starks.

Ghostface Killah – Love Don’t Live Here No More Lyrics:
[Verse 1: Ghostface Killah]
Feelin’ fresh, walkin’ down the block
‘Bout to see my boo, it’s about 6 o’clock
Love is love, it’d been a long time comin’
9 long years, I know she missed my lovin’
Huggin’, kissin’ in the scent of the kid
She gonna fall out when she see me at the crib
Ding dong, can I speak to Bamboo?
It’s me Penelope, stop actin’ a fool
She said, “damn, I thought you was dead
Not a phone call? Not a carton of milk”
For real a phone call? Stop
You know I had to up and leave
I told you I’ll be back, girl, but you ain’t believe
She told me 9 was too long, and she got a new man
One who gon’ stay and hold it down for the fam
So scram, there’s no more love for the kid
So I turned my head down and walked away from the crib
[Hook: Kandace Springs (Ghostface Killah)]
Loved so many times
I’ve been alone so long
Had to pull myself together
Find my heart a brand new home
Got a good thing goin’ on
Can’t let you mess with my flow
Too little, too late
Love don’t live here no more
(Love is love, Tony’s back up on the aisle)
(Gone for 9 years like 9 months to a child)
Cried so many times
(Where’s my boo at? I need to see Bamboo)
(I got a lot of things on my mind, to explain to you)
Love don’t live here no more
Love don’t live here no more
[Interlude: Ghostface Killah]
It’s like that? Okay then where you put all my stuff at then?
You know, I thought, you know I swear he’s, he been doin’
gthis for too long. I done came home, you got another man,
you know what
[Verse 2: Ghostface Killah]
Oh word, so you over it? That’s absurd
I never did a damn thing to deserved it
This is a man’s world, I go away come home lookin’ for you
Now you fuckin’ up the plans, girl
You another man’s girl, that ain’t kosher
Once you see the kid’s face you’re supposed to
Drop what you’re doin’, show your loyalty and love
Step out on the porch with a kiss and a hug
Yo you buggin’
[Hook]
[Outro: Ghostface Killah]
Just can’t understand, you know. I treated you, I gave you everything you wanted.
You know what I’m sayin’? And it’s like you got another dude laying in the bed?
Wearin’ my robes, wearin’ you out. I know I was gone but damn, I just can’t get it,
baby. But I loved you though man, and I still do though
