Editors’ Notes

Who would’ve expected that Ghostface would become the most vital solo artist to emerge from the beloved Wu-Tang Clan? His remarkably vivid, streetwise raps remain as potent and seductive as ever, an uncanny blend of urgency, candor, drama, wit, and grit. “This is architect music, verbal street opera,” he spits on the furious “The Champ,” which is as apt a description as any. “Kilo,” featuring his old pal Raekwon, is a spellbinding drug-dealing memoir glowing with vibrant details and held together by an irresistible hook. The whole Clan joins in on “9 Milli Bros.” (produced by MF Doom), which soars atop a terrific piano-and-strings backdrop. As usual, the album is drenched in old-school soul; few artists approach this sound with as much gusto and natural ease. Tracks like “Crack Spot” and “R.A.G.U.” (the latter produced by Pete Rock) somehow blend rather unsettling subject matter with smooth, fetching, ‘70s-style R&B productions. On “Whip You with a Strap,” which builds on Luther Ingram’s 1970 hit “To the Other Man,” producer J Dilla uses a sped-up Ingram sample to provide the perfect setting for Ghost’s unique childhood reflections. “Back Like That” (with Ne-Yo) is a slow jam with a slinky chorus and a rather threatening Ghost flow. Despite a steady parade of producers, Fishscale is cohesive and absolutely thrilling. (This iTunes edition includes a collaboration with Ice Cube that doesn’t appear on the CD.)

Customer Reviews

Fishscale-Ghostface Killah

Ghostface is back with his fifth solo album, Fishscale delivered the same week as T.I.'s King. Here's how the Wu-Tang member did. Shakey Dog: Great production that is uptempo and has some great lyrics from Ghost. His description of a robbery is great and so vivid. 4/5 Kilo: Great hook sample, "A kilo is one thousand grams, easy to remember" as Ghost and Raekwon describe their hustle. Another great track. 3.5/5 The Champ: Just Blaze produces a great uptempo track as Ghost flows with ease, the guitar in the beat is also great. 4/5 9 Milli Bros.: Solid production by MF Doom as Wu-Tang lovers will enjoy this, as every member is present, even O.D.B. Great flow and chemistry between the members. 4/5 Beauty Jackson: Production felt like a daydream, as Ghost describes this pretty girl he finds. Another great lyrical description. 3.5/5 Crack Spot: Soulful production similar to "Beauty Jackson" as Ghost describes selling his drugs to a fiend. Crazy action that occurs in this. 3.5/5 R.A.G.U.: Pete Rock's simple production serves fine as Ghost and Raekwon combine for a solid track. 3.5/5 Whip You With A Strap: J Dilla's sample of "To The Other Man" is great here, on this funny storytelling of how kids now get "big treats, fresh pair of sneaks, punishments like have a seat". Great track. 4/5 Back Like That: Soulful track here with Ne-Yo's hook and assisting production as Ghost keeps it gangsta about a cheating girl. 4.5/5 Be Easy: Pete Rock's club bangin beat is simple and good. Ghost does his thing and the hook is great as Trife adds a verse. 4.5/5 Clipse Of Doom: Odd production that has loops that will irritate you but Ghost spits some crazy lines. 3.5/5 Jellyfish: Ghost joins with Capadonna, Shawn Wigs and Trife on this lady admiring track. Smooth organs work well. 4/5 Dogs Of War: Raekwon, Capadonna, Sun God and Trife combine for this fam track. 3.5/5 Barbershop: Smooth production similar to "Beauty Jackson" and "Crack Spot". 3.5/5 Big Girl: Great production by Ghost himself as he samples The Stylistics "You're A Big Girl" that works well as he describes how ladies should put down the drugs. 4.5/5 Underwater: Straight bizarre as MF Doom's eerie production is perfect as Ghost sees "mermaids with Halle Berry haircuts" and "Spongebob in a bentley coop bumpin the Isleys". 4/5 Momma: Production was fitting and Megan Rochell's soulful hook is nice as Ghost makes a tribute to woman and especially mommas all around. 5/5 Three Bricks: Originally on the Biggie Duets album, it got cut and ended up here. Cool & Dre's intense production shines as Biggie, Ghost and Raekwon collab for a drug trade track. 5/5 Be Easy: Ice Cube joins Ghost for a solid bonus. 4.5/5 Ghost's fifth album is a great one. Lyrically it is amazing and his vivid detail and soulful production combine for one hell of a ride. "Shakey Dog" is unbelievably detailed that makes you feel like your there. "Kilo" describes their hustle with drugs, "The Champ" is hyped up and a great Just Blaze production. "9 Milli Bros" is a Wu reunion, "Whip You With A Strap" is a comparison between past and present punishments, "Be Easy" is a banger. "Back Like That" is the gangsta yet soulful track and "Big Girl" along with "Momma" are touching. "Three Bricks" is straight awesome. Rating 9 out of 10

Return Of IronMan

Ghost is one of the true Wu Gods that has never fell off. It's nice to see he is still f*cking with Donna Cappa Goins and The Chef.....When is RZA gonna get em all together like Voltron to drop another WU Banger...ODB...R.I.P!!

Doin this before NaS dropped the NASTY!

The album is hot, classic tracks on here. Production is tight with Pete Rock, JayDee (aka J Dilla), and MF Doom manning the boards. Ghost's lyrics, flow and delivery are on POINT as always. And the collabos are very welcomed, with both Raekwon and Cappadonna killin it. Standout tracks: RAGU, Kilo, 9 Milli Bros, Dogs of War, Shakey Dog, The Champ, damn... they are all hot, just cop the album!

As one of the original members of the seminal '90s rap crew the Wu-Tang Clan, Ghostface Killah (aka Tony Starks) made an impact before he released his debut album, Ironman, late in 1996. Like all members of the Wu-Tang Clan, the rapper used the group as a launching pad for a solo career, which was assisted greatly by other members of the Clan, particularly producer RZA. Ghostface Killah had rapped on Wu-Tang's 1993 debut, Enter the Wu-Tang, but he didn't distinguish himself until 1995, when he was...
