Czarface is the boundary-busting hip hop crew consisting of 7L, Esoteric, and Wu-Tang Clan’s Inspectah Deck. The group has announced an inventive book and record set release for Record Store Day. The project, titled First Weapon Drawn, is a beautifully conceived vinyl release packaged with a 24-page comic book in a gatefold jacket:

The musical component of First Weapon Drawn provides a soundtrack to the comic book that includes both instrumental accompaniment and voiceover narration. It’s kind of like the soundtrack to Shaft meets hip-hop meets Power Records (a series of influential comic-and-vinyl releases from the 70s). First Weapon Drawn serves as the musical accompaniment to the origin story of the character known as Czarface. Listen to two tracks here:
