Wu Tang’s Ghostface Killah is back, and he’s back with a bang. Fishscale is a monster of a rap album, with exceptional production from all across the spectrum, from MF Doom to London’s own Lewis Parker [who produces Shakey Dog, the track you can stream here] and of course brings in some tight flows from Ghostface himself.
Always energetic and bringing the rhymes with a voice that has as much physical presence as a Lennox Lewis punch, Ghostface doesn’t let up on this album, especially on the standout tracks The Champ, Shakey Dog and Be Easy. Another bonus on this album is the reuniting once more of the entire Wu Tang [including ODB], on the track 9 Milli Bros. It’s always great to hear New York’s premier crew hitting the bars with their distinct style.
Ghostface has always been able to produce great tracks but sometimes his consistency has lacked a little, but not on Fishscale. He brings a great mix of party tracks, slower songs and always gets that head nodding, a sure fire way of being a smash. Cop this album as soon as you can, it’s a banger.
