Ghostface’s “Fishscale” set to Drop February 28th

his signature gold eagle cuff and oversized medallions, his impeccable
collection of robes, his Mexican wrestling masks and his infamous alter ego –
Tony Starks a.k.a. Ironman – Shoalin’s favorite son, Ghostface Killah, is
hip-hop’s resident superhero. And don’t think he doesn’t know it: this spring
he is set to release a limited edition 9” tall action figure of himself
(, complete with real 14 karat gold jewelry. But true
hip-hop fans know Ghostface as much more than the hyper-animated character he
portrays onstage. They know him as one of the game’s most talented and beloved
MCs, a gifted wordsmith and rapper’s rapper who also speaks to the everyday
struggles of the hood and the average fan.

“Back Like That,” Fishscale’s soulful first single, is vintage Ghostface and is
already gathering heat from radio and the streets. Featuring Def Jam’s rapidly-
rising young star Ne-Yo, the track finds Ghost in a familiar everyman role,
bemoaning a vengeful ex who’s been seen around with a bitter rival.
“Ghostface is one of the most original hip-hop artists around,” Ne-Yo
recently told MTV News. “He’s a legend. Just to be considered for the song
was an honor. He’s true hip-hop.”

Armed with production from MF DOOM, Pete Rock, J.Dilla, MadLib, and many
others, the broad shouldered Ghost stands ready and willing to carry the Wu
Tang’s burden and return rap to its proper course. “Fishscale is just me
showing that I can still ball with the best of them,” says Ghost. “With each
album I learn, so this album has the most knowledge of all of them.”

Also, Don’t miss Ghostface as he tours up the East- Coast
with the rest of the Wu-Tang.
