Gone Fishin': All Samples Cleared (Except 2!)

Yellow Nigga, a beat digger? Not really, homie. I’m just a grown man who enjoys the sounds that provide the beautiful backdrops to some of your favorite rap tunes. You see ever since the blessed day, my mello, my man Chairman Mao hipped your boy to the sampled crazed, breakbeat world of hip-hop, I’ve become a certified addict—addicted to music. If a producer looped it, chopped it or screwed it—I want it. Whether on vinyl, CD or MP3. Give up the goods—just step. I’m a fiend.

And, as we all know by now, Ghostface has returned with that crack, as the kids say. Few MC’s have a finer taster’s choice of picking the proper beats to back-up their formidable flows. Ghost is truly a soul baby and anything he busts his larynx over I must possess. It’s the reason why I’ve feverishly over the past week been gathering all the songs that have been used in the creation of his latest incredible LP, Fishcale.

Enough talk already—listen to the music. Or play yourself and don’t. I don’t care. I got more records to buy on-line.
