So we got a bit of news this week and the Dear Mr. Supercomputer household that will shake things up. So similarly, I figured I'd shake things up with the MP3 of the Week this week.
Ghostface Killah got a lot of hype last year with Fishscale. Ghostface was part of the Wu-Tang Clan and used that as a springboard, much like other members of the Clan. With help from some amazing production from GZA, Pete Rock, and a slew of others Fishscale rode up the critical and commercial charts.
Now, let me step aside that most of the DMS readership (and certainly the authorship) isn't too familiar with the hip-hop scene. That's ok. But it would behoove all of us to see what the best of hip-hop has to offer every once in a whole. And oftentimes it won't be playing on the radio if you ever make it down to that area of the dial. So take a listen and just try to tell me you aren't amped up after spinning Ghostface Killah's "The Champ."
