Ghosting is a project that gives listeners insight on the types of artists and music that inspires Buff1.  Giving himself one week to write original material, Buff1 created this free project to be released into the blogosphere.  Choosing songs that coincidentally had space for Buff1 to spit, none of the original songs have been edited.

Buff felt there were obvious similarities between the music on this project and one of his favorite Ghostface songs “Holla”; on which Ghost raps over the entire Delfonic’s song “La-La Means I Love You”.  Ghosting also happens to be a game where one person follows behind another, mimicking their movements as closely as possible, without being detected.

The Ghostface homage, combined with Buff1 trying his best to follow in the footsteps of the artists who inspired him to write this project, made the title obvious.  Lastly, don’t sleep on the exclusive bonus track “Better” produced by Slot-A.
