The Grantland Consumer Advisory of the Day: This Ghostface Puzzle
Everyone else in the music-nostalgia repackaging business, consider this an official warning to step up your game. As Pitchfork points out, a label called Get On Down is re-releasing Ghostface Killah’s classic 1996 debut, Ironman, as a “Premium Collection: Gold Edition” package — and that package comes with an Ironman album cover puzzle. There’s only 2,000 of them available, and each includes a remastered 24k “audiophile gold disc” CD, a “cherrywood trophy box,” a 48-page hardcover book, and — oh, yeah — that Ghostface puzzle.
Here is that puzzle:
Yep, Rae, Don Don the Cabdriver, a bunch of Wu Wear wallabees, and Mr. Tony Starks himself, all in glorious, jagged, puzzle-piece form. The reissue drops later this month. I suggest you start saving your funds now, possibly by embezzling your place of business.
By the way, this really does escalate the whole enterprise. Meaning: If the Supreme Clientele reissue doesn’t come with a make-your-own diorama set, I’ll be sorely disappointed.

“Actually, the last thing we shot with Matthew [McConaughey], which was really great because we got to surprise him, was from episode seven when Marty’s watching the video tape Rust stole from the Tuttle house and Matthew has his back to Woody. We start rolling and I keep it going and we gather the entire crew right outside the storage unit. We slammed the doors open, which kind of shocked him for a second, and then the whole crew was there to clap for him. It was pretty awesome.”
