Dennis Coles has more character in his discarded pantyhose mask than most modern rappers have in their whole catalogue. Who else could shoplift an enemy's wife as collateral on a skit and make you believe it? Thankfully, the Carter administration re-ups on the Deini drug and cooks up this 16-track banger from that intangible Shaolin rap treasure.
Raekwon, Method Man, U-God and Masta Killa all come crazy correct, while Ghost tells his random ghetto dramas and makes modern rap music that is actually fun to listen to. Sadly, no RZA production appears on Ghost's seventh solo project -- thus this isn't as good as the invincible Supreme Clientele, but it's more cohesive than Fishscale.
