Neako kicks off this project spitting “In my time I made some prolific music without influence, I was still fluent, remain exclusive only pop out when it’s necessary… I rhyme like I took 12 senzus, been in the hyperbolic chamber for months.” In true Ghost fashion, the ski-masked spitter hailing from New Jersey announces his remanifestation. And thus the title “Rules & Parameters” applies. A parameter is a quantity whose value is selected for the particular circumstances and in relation to which other variable quantities may be expressed. Neako takes us on a supernaturally braggadocious journey, spitting bars packed with references to high fashion, science fiction and raw street combat. From partying with Griselda in Buffalo on “Party with Gunn” to connecting with Los Angeles barsmith and Lord Mobb heavyweight Phonk P on “Bonnections,” Neako glides over a smooth yet spooky soundscape crafted by producer Spano for an un-skippable 17 track masterpiece curated by Dough Networkz.
