Don’t be spooked: Ghost seeks peace

Sean Hicks is surely an unlikely hip-hop peacemaker, but that very fact might be what could make him effective. Hicks, 39, is about a month out of jail, having served 15 years and nine months for a variety of infractions, including the stabbing incident that involved Celtics star Paul Pierce.
Hicks is also the rapper affiliated with Boston’s Made Men, known by his stage name of Ghost, an allusion to his very pale Irish complexion. He is also the nephew of Howie Winter, legendary crime boss of the Winter Hill gang.
The first session for a series of shoots for a new video being produced for Ghost/Hicks took place Monday at Quincy’s My House nightclub. The theme of the video for the song “This Is It” – which samples Kenny Loggins’ 1979 hit by the same name – involves Ghost and his crew headed to TD Garden for a show, only to be diverted by a scheduling snafu. The group switches the concert to the basement of Ghost’s home, which is represented by My House’s cozy main room. Along with the concert views filmed Monday, the video will feature footage shot of Quincy from the air, and a session on the USS Salem.
The action Monday drew a variety of what is an emerging hip-hop scene south of Boston. During the past month, My House has instituted a hip-hop open mike on Thursdays, and the response has been what the club’s owner, Marcellus Lee, calls consistently amazing. Already, hip-hop luminaries like Johnny Gil and Steve Smith of the group Dirty Vegas have stopped by while in the Boston area.
Hip-hop has often felt the need to operate under the radar because most club owners are wary of the music’s reputation. That’s why Hicks enlisted an amiable Boston native known simply as Casino to forge peaceful alliances with as many of the different factions involved in the music as possible. read more
