Ghostface told New York Magazine in July that he “wanted to base [this album] around The Wizard of Oz. I was passing the chuckle patches and all that stuff like that, doing everything till I got to the Emerald City, and meeting the person that was like God, you know what I mean?… I couldn’t take the same likeness of that movie and put it on my album ’cause then it’s gonna cause a problem. But I still kept the Wizard of Poetry and Emerald City.” And talk about good timing: This week was the 70th anniversary of the debut of The Wizard of Oz.
