Ghostface Killah – More Fish

Ghostface Killah - More Fish

Since Jay-Z’s return to the booth, there has been much criticism about his managerial duties, coming mostly from the artists he presides over. The one exception and artist who seems to have some sort of extra favor is Ghostface. In the midst of several platinum artists that need some TLC, his album is still a priority.

Fishscale was a critical success with more radio play than usual due to his collabo with labelmate Ne-Yo. On the follow up titled More Fish, he continues in the same mood of the last album – soulful, playful and open hearted. Ghost opens up dropping an off-the-wall skit with Tracy Morgan about New Year’s Eve and “peanut butter” on his broken toes. The song then goes into a rapid fire remake of a Rakim classic, entitled “Ghost is Back.” Pretty Toney gets into an array of dope tracks such as “Outta Town Shit,” “Street Opera,” and the intense “Block Rock.” This album steers away from the normal guest appearances and goes with some people we haven’t heard from in a minute (“Greedy Bitches” ft. Redman and “Blue Armor” ft. Sheek Louch). Other tracks that make this album great include “Josephine,” a chilling visual story of a young woman who becomes an addict right before your eyes and “Pokerface,” an ode to hip-hop’s newest favorite card game.

More Fish brings a much needed element to the game and we’re all lucky that Mr. Carter recognizes Ghost’s genius.
