With his second album of the year, More Fish, due next month, Ghostface Killah recently spoke with SOHH about his new CD, the current state of hip-hop and his conspicuous absence from Wu-Tang Clan's "VH1 Hip-Hop Honors" performance.
While completing an album often proves to be a struggle for most artists, Tony Starks knocked out the follow-up to Fishscale in under nine months, exhibiting a drive that has undoubtedly pleased the execs over at Def Jam.
"I needed to do it, I had to keep my name out there," Ghostface told SOHH. "Def Jam wanted another album real fast. We got money to make in the fourth quarter."
The album features appearances from Redman, Sheek Louch and the Theodore Unit. Ghost's son, Sun God, is also featured on the album.
"That's my oldest right there, he's getting busy," Ghostface proudly told SOHH. "We're just doing what we do."
While fellow Wu-member and labelmate Method Man has more than alluded to being discontented at Def Jam, Ghostface expressed some gratitude toward his home label, "You know, I'm still fresh there, and they're still fresh. We're just giving each other a chance. I just got a roof over my head right now."
While Ghostface has been critical toward hip-hop previously, he seems to have mellowed toward the current state of the music, telling SOHH, "It is what it is. I don't hate it. Hip-Hop is universal, but the East Coast gotta work at getting what we're used to."
Heads that tuned in to the "VH1's Hip-Hop Honors" this year had to be disappointed when Tony Starks didn't show for the group's tribute and televised reunion performance. However, fans shouldn't be alarmed. Ghost missed the show due to a scheduling conflict.
"I was in Europe performing for the Europeans and all that," Ghost explained. "'Hip-Hop Honors' was supposed to be done in August originally, so I switched my Europe dates to October. Then they switched the show to October but I had my commitments already done."
More Fish hits stores December 12 via Def Jam.

just listening to the more fish sampler, damn this is good. I didn't enjoy fishscale all that much, as big a doom fan as i am, i still didn't wanna hear old herbs. Based on this sampler i'm guessing that this is gonna be better than fishscale.
Fishscale was pretty good for a major release but i was dead dissappointed that there were no new doom beats on there.... but i'm sure the doom/ ghostface album will make up ffor all that.

and it sounds pretty good to me, when the official one drops it will be on play for awhile so it can be absorbed in my head.
