Most have you have probably already heard most if not all of the new Ghostface record Fishscale. Pretty much the entire damn thing was released over various mp3 blogs. As billed this record is a classic. Its armed to the teeth with allstar production from MF DOOM, Pete Rock, J.Dilla, MadLib, and others. Solid from top to bottom. I grabbed myself a copy and you definitely need to as well.
Ghost's songs are unrelenting in their slavishness to density and credibility, and that can turn off casual listeners even as it intoxicates hip-hop purists. "My arts is crafty darts, why y'all stuck with 'Laffy Taffy'?" he asks with utter sincerity on "The Champ". As long as inevitable questions like that continually re-up this heavyweight's unswerving drive, they're probably better left unanswered.
Here are some of my favorite tracks on the record. Underwater is also one hell of a track.
Mp3: Ghostface Killah - "Be Easy"*
Link: Ghostface Killah - "Champ"
Link: Ghostface Killah feat. Theodore Unit - "Jellyfish"
Link: Ghostface Killah - "Shakey Dog"
