I feel like this is part of who Ghost is though, I mean, dude makes up his own slang...and after pressing rewind a couple of times, the slang makes sense.



I guess, it seems like dude be in his own world on the slang.

I thought E-40 was bad



. I wonder what he's up to nowadays.


Well, we know what Hector is up too LOL

PBS was the closest thing to cable I had

He is in his own world on the slang. Dude, E-40's shit is whack, to me. Wu slang is 1000039345398734987 times better than E-40's annoying forced garbage.


For all those hating' on Ghost please go buy Supreme Clientele, twist a few blunts. Take a time out, sit by yourself, listen to that whole album while smokin' the stuff mentioned in the previous sentence and listen with an open mind.

If you don't like it, you don't like it....but I'm tellin' you that album is great and once you fall in love with that album, you will probably have a neww appreciation for the rest of his stuff...EVEN bulletproof wallets!!!


Please focus on the last few lines...

"Word.. it's me y'all..
We in two-six's flirtin with bitches
Dime plus takin pictures, how you doin baby? My name Ghost
Don't get caught up in my chains, or the way that I speak
Seek intelligence, slickest nigga goin since "Grease"
Check out the grays on the side of my waves
I grew those on Riker's Island
Stretched out, balled up in the caves
Pull a boot out on Jimmy Jam, text takes jam
Silky texture, Jordan jumped up like Clyde Drexler
All up in the parrot, nose numb, real as they come
Biggie's Versace's, snow white rabbit
Hands is like photographic magic, funeral love
Movin when we hug, don't make it a habit
Hit the gym for two weeks, come back all chiseled
Elbows unique now, meet the new me
Ghettofabulous, Ton' Atlas
Zulu Nation in the 80's in front of Macy's
I start my own chapters
Tyco nightglow velvet pose, special effects
High-tech armors merc you at the shows
Supercalifragalisticexpialidocious
Dociousaliexpifragalisticcalisuper
Cancun, catch me in the room, eatin grouper.."

True Ghostface is the best MC out there at the Moment.

Rakim and GZA are at the same level, both No. 3

He can make sense/not make sense, be detailed like no other. Call him lyrically abstract. The man clearly loves words and the sound of words. I wouldn't be surprised if he gets in a groove while writing lyrics to songs about nothing* and just doesn't care if the shit he comes up with in the heat of the moment are deliriously out of sync. His nasally [though ecstatic] flow can get monotonous, though; he always seems on the cusp of crying. But the man never sounds anything less than enthusiastic and hungry. Maybe if he tried to be less abstract he would receive the respect he deserves.

But do any of you have fun attempting to break down his words? I do. The man's capable of inspiring people to care about making verbal communication musical and artistic.

*[something being "All That I Got", "With a Strap", etc]

These are my favorite MC's who i think can go toe 2 toe with GHOSTFACE

*KooL G. Rap

*AESOP rock

*GzA

*JERU da DAMAJA

*RAKaa IriScience

*mf DOOM



Come on lil buddy, RAKAA IRIFUCKINGSCIENCE! Son isn't even the best in his own group let alone ghost. Ghost is ill, but not that best. Is KRS1 fucking chopped liver? I concur with the Doom statements though. He's presents a very strong case for the goat in my book. But really, can one really come to a conclusion in a greatest of all time discussion?

Hey I dont care, I just know what I like, I like MC's that dont grate on my ears. He's good, dont getr me wrong, and he is amazing storyteller, but his voice, is his one knock against him. Its ounds good in cetain situations but for an overall selection of greatest ever I have to disagree.


Thats some of the most homoerotic shit I've ever heard! You want a hip hop version of Barry White or something!? Are you trying to get serenaded or something.....You might be listening to the wrong type of music homes. THIS IS HIP HOP, music with a street origin. It's supposed to sound like that!!!!! B)
