Looks like Ghostface is back at it, and I must say I love it when Pretty Toney gets romantic. As promised, Ghost is through making songs about crack cocaine and shootouts and plans on channeling his sensitive side on his upcoming project. And, of course, a track titled 'Forever' has already leaked.

And it turns out, Ghost's new, smoother sound is part mid-life crisis -- the rapper is 39-years-old -- and part recession. Oh yeah, and let's not forget the most important reason: Ghost hasn't actually shot anyone in over a decade! Go figure!

"You gotta tell the fans that you not gettin' no younger here -- I don't sell crack, yo. I ain't movin' no bricks or none of that other s---. I ain't shoot nobody in like...since the early 90s, man," Ghost explained in a recent interview. "How long you gonna be 40 years old and actin' like you still sellin' cracks and you on the block and you doin' this and you doin' that when times is more serious, man. We in a f---in' recession, B! Ain't nobody gettin' no money, man!"

Check out 'Forever.'
