Ghostface Killah Fishscale
- Words: Jesse Serwer
- Label: Def Jam
Ghostface hype reached a fever pitch preceding the release of Fishscale, but sadly, it's not quite the all-time classic everyone was predicting. Even on his worst day, Ghost is still capable of producing one of the year's best rap albums, but given the names involved in this project, Fishscale could have been better. The much-hyped meeting of Ghost and MF Doom merely recycles old Doom beats from previous projects like 2003's Monster Island Czars album. Still, Fishscale has plenty of highlights, such as Ghost's tender rocking of a J Dilla beat on "Whip You With A Strap" and the Cuban Linx-like Raekwon collabos "Kilo" and "R.A.G.U."
