Product Description

Fishscale features the single 'Back Like That' which features Ne-Yo. Other guest appearances include Wu-Tang Clan and Keyshia Cole and production by he late J. Dilla, Just Blaze, MF DOOM, Pete Rock, Madlib, and many others. Universal. 2006.


While the rest of the Wu-Tang Clan now seems a faint memory from hip-hop's '90s era, Ghostface has become a one-man force in maintaining the vitality of the Clan. The way he opens Fishscale with the frantic, hyperactive "Shakey Dog," is all the evidence you'd need to see how Ghost is that rare MC who's gotten better with age. His jumble of colorful wordplay is now honed into a sharp edge of drug-game narratives ("R.A.G.U."), neighborhood stories ("Barbershop"), honeyed pimp talk ("Big Girl") and braggadocio raw enough to melt minds ("Be Easy"). Backing him up are both familiar partners-in-rhyme like Raekwon (who sounds his best in years), Cappadonna, and Trife and also a surprising squad of underground producers that includes Just Blaze, Pete Rock, MF Doom, and the late J-Dilla. One of the skit quips that Ghost hasn't been this focused since Supreme Clientele, his 2000 classic; that's no joke--this is his best since then. --Oliver Wang

I was first introduced to the Wu Tang Clan when one of my boys from high school had a cassette single with the tracks "Protect Ya Neck" and "Method Man". Once I heard the two tracks, I quickly became a fan of the group. When they dropped their CD, "Enter The Wu Tang: (36 Chambers)", the CD quickly became a favorite of mine with tracks like "Bring Da Ruckus", "Wu Tang: 7th Chamber", "Can It All Be So Simple", "Da Mystery Of Chessboxin'" and my all time favorite Wu Tang Clan song, "C.R.E.A.M.". The Wu Tang Clan did their best to make sure that everyone got their own chance to shine. However, certain members stuck out. For me originally it was the GZA, Method Man and O.D.B. (R.I.P.)

When the Wu Tang Clan members started releasing solo CDs, Method Man's "Tical" was pretty decent, O.D.B.'s "Return To The 36 Chambers (The Dirty Version)" impressed me because he was able to mix his humor with good lyrics, especially my favorite song from the CD, "Rawhide" which featured O.D.B. w/Raekwon & Method Man. However, out of nowhere Raekwon released "Only Built For Cuban Linx" and literally I was sent to another world..lol With help from Tony Starks (Ghostface Killah), Raekwon created one of my favorite rap CDs of all time. Although I had the CD, you could find alot of people on campus with the infamous "purple tape". Tracks like "Knowledge God", "Criminology", "Incarcerated Scarfaces", "Rainy Days", let's just say the whole CD gave me a newfound respect for Raekwon The Chef and Ghostface Killah. There was no way that Ghotface Killah's solo CD could outdue "Only Built For Cuban Linx", but "Ironman" had several tight tracks like the first single, "Daytona 500", "Iron Maiden", "Poisonous Darts", "260" and the smooth "Camay".

Ghostface Killah (AKA Tony Starks) provides a quality album with his fifth solo release "Fishscale" (2006). I have been bumping this album since I got it, from the opener "The Return of Clyde Smith" (skit) to the albums closer "Three Bricks" feat. the late great Notorious B.I.G. & Raekwon, Ghostface takes his audience through a memorable & original journey on this twenty four track (including skits) release. Ghostface delivers raw fastpaced rhymes on "Shakey Dog", and hooks up with his Cuban Linx brethren Raekwon for "Kilo". One of my early favorites is "The Champ", love the intro to this cut, hypes up a track which Ghostface kills. The whole Wu-Tang clan reunites for a banger "9 Milli Bros", love hearing them back together, even ODB (R.I.P.) is included on this cut. Some entertaining skits follow, and then Raekwon and Ghostface team up again for more thug stories on "R.A.G.U.". Backed by a distinctive sample from J Dilla (R.I.P.) Ghost then delivers "Whip You With A Strip" remembering being a bad kid who got beats. I saw the video for "Back Like That" the other day, Ghostface and up and coming singer Ne-Yo collaborate for another outstanding track. Ne-Yo's sings soulfully and Ghost's lyrics on point, making this cut the lead single makes sense. Ghostface delivers an upbeat & funny cut with "Be Easy" which features his "Put It On The Line" rhyme partner Trife. Grimy street cuts like "Clipse of Doom" feat. Trife & "Dogs of War" feat. Raekwon & Theodore Unit follow. His son "Sun God" is included on this cut. This whole album is full of creative concepts, "Underwater" being another good example. "Momma" is a heartfelt cut, backed by some smooth singing from Megan Rochell, Ghost drops some deep rhymes.Read more ›

This album really shows the versatility ghostface shows in his material from the crazy amazingly dope story tellin (shakey dog and barbershop) to the raw lyricism type tracks such as dogs of war, clipse of doom, be easy etc

love this album for a few different reasons...

(1) Ghostface came with the intention of spitting heat, and has done that throughout the album....there isn't one cut where he didn't give his all lyrically, and that is a very, very, VERY rare thing in todays rap game where just about everyone is focusing solely on how they say it as opposed to what they are saying or how creative they are in what they say.

(2) Ghostface is telling stories...something that is very uncommon in todays game as well......and not only that, but he's not keeping it simple, he's actually putting depth into his stories and carries that concept throughout the album.....what tops it all off is the fact that he's got sound effects in the background to his stories, something that instantaneously makes the stories more interesting and keeps you listening more than once......

(3) his beats fit his lyrics and his voice and flow....he didn't just pick the hottest, most catchiest beats and spit some hot garbage over them, he picked beats that complimented his voice and flow....again, something relatively non-existent among most rappers...

(4) he realized he didn't need a hook to everything, or at least a hook that is stuck in your head...e.g., Shakey Dog...striaght heat, with no chorus

(5) his album is consistent throughout...

That isn't anything new to me, I own them all. The J Dilla Donuts CD is HOT!!! He really hooked Ghostface up. And DOOM is the master of the universe, nuff said, LOL. Actually the beats by MF Doom are on the Special Herbs Vol. 1-2. The Ghostface album is really nice, it was definitely my money... Read More
