    We def need releases like these right now! We got too many whiny/singy bitchy music (Drake/Weezy) all over the radio, and tv, and we need some of that grimy back! I’m coppin all three!!!

  • fabbylu$

    cant wait to get my grungy hands on ‘em

    word up

    Im sorry but Bullet Proof Wallets was the greatest album of all time.

    :kanye shrug

  • TheLastHope

    Sheek Louch cover art might be one of the worst in Hip Hop history. XXL should actually do an insert on the HIP HOP’S TOP 20 WORST ALBUM COVER ART!

    Im sorry but bulletproof wallets was the greatest album of all time :kanye shrug

  • martini

    Jane no disrespek but bulletproof wallets aint even da best Ghostface album. Supreme clinetle is his masterpiece. No question! And wallets gets bitch slapped by da pretty tony album all da long.Seriously go back & make da comparison yourself..

  • sealsaa

    @martini

    Nah, Ghost’ best album was Ironman. People stay sleeping on Ironman. The production was better, and the Wu’s rhymes were sharper.

  • oskamadison

    Wow, yet three more albums for Def Jam to underpromote at the same time. They do this every year, drop a bunch of albums that they don’t push unless it’s ‘Ye or Rihanna (BTW, she’s droppin’ that new joint rather quickly. Is it safe to say that Rated R flopped?) At least Ne-yo, Chrissette Michelle or The Drewm ain’t on none of their singles.
    To weigh in on the Ghost discussion, imo, Ironman and SC are equally significant in that Ironman is the last great Wu album from that first wave (everything up to Wu-Tang Forever) while SC not only saved the Wu (word to Bumpy Knuckles) but it gave birth to Ghost’s persona and helped him establish an identity outside of the Wu.

    • oskamadison

      BTW, don’t forget about Fishscale.

      • swype-matic

        Actually Fishscale was promoted pretty well back then, they pumped up the hell outta that Back Like That song, and the album sold 110K first week. That’s one rap related album Def Jam did right back then.

  • terror

    out of these 3, im copping the Ghost, only one that looks worthy right now. and by the way Supreme Clientel is the best Ghost album to date no doubt.

  • John Cochran

    Def Jam drops a Rick Ross album, its all over the radio and the net. These guys drop, and you find out by mistake walking through the store. I’m not gonna throw an east coast, 90′s rap bias fit about it, becuase none of them are that relevent, but as a fan you want the artists you like to be successful. Especially Ghost, who drops classic or near classic material every album.

    • oskamadison

      True….

  • swype-matic

    That Ghost and Redman is gettin copped. Sheek Louch should get knocked the fuck out for that album cover.

    ^ LoLz

    k

    1. Supreme Clientele
    a.Ironman
    2. Fishscale
    3. Pretty Toney
    4. Big Doe Rehab
    5. Bulletproof Wallets
    6. Wizard Of Poetry

    Sheek should be beat by his momma for that cover. Set us back another 50 yrs with that.

    And Red is 1 of my faves…but Killa Priest is the 11th official/unofficial Wu guy.

  • Technique

    I will definitely cop Ghost and Reggie Noble…
    I’ll buy a new LOX album, Or even a Space Ghost or Jada album, but I aint fuckin with Sheek like that.

  • http://babyfacemonster.blogspot.com babyfacemonster

    sheek please dont do it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    im at a lost for words how horrible ur cover looks. is def jam trna save $ and let u photoshop it urself at home?????????? i dont understand, album prob dope as hell but i wont listen because of dis fuckn image.
    so sheek please dont do it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Q461

    @ Don mcCaine

    lol dude co-sign that Sheek album cover is horrendous.

    @ John Cochran.

    It’s a sad day when these 3 arent considered relavant rappers. Red and Ghost have countless bangers also. Fuckin shame.

    Side notes:

    Is it just me, or are these albums being rushed out there with zero marketing and no singles???? lol I mean, cmon this shit is ridiculous.

    Props to Redman for grabbing Kool Moe Dee for a feature. Peace to the pioneers.

    Very amped up to hear Ghost with Black Thought, Game, and Joell Ortiz. Gotta say out of the 3, I like Ghost the best as an MC. Cool that he named the record Apollo Kids too, one of my fav joints by dude.

  • Stylistic

    I don’t know about Ghostface being irrelevent. People still love Wu-Tang, and let’s face it if you’re not Weezy, TI, Kanye, Em, Ross, Drake, or Jay, your not getting any kind of promotion or airplay and that’s the BIGGEST MAJOR PROBLEM in Hip Hop today. Only the 7 names I mentioned get promoted while everybody else has to rely on Youtube, and a loyal fanbase!

  • swabes1

    Nobody is ever irrelevent, I used to love ill al scratch, they just up and disappeared! people do their thing, have a shelf life and then the company makes a decision, it’s real simple just support the artists you admire, me, I check for J.Ortiz, Black Thought, Common, Ludacris etc. and yes the above mentioned except for Ross,Drake, Weezy,Wayne seemes to be a nice youth, I love what Jay has developed into but I’ve never really
    been a fan, love Fat Joe though, by the way I’m from England and as much as I respect Sheek it’s that same feeling I sometimes get when I watch Wendy Williams it’s called nausea!
