What They Dissed: Bulletproof Wallets, The Pretty Toney Album
What They Said: "He's an animal, he's hungry. You ain't been hungry since Supreme Clientele!" - "The Champ"
The rap game is a competitive sport and no MC wants to ever admit that they "lost it." Four solo albums in, and not to mention his ongoing run with Wu-Tang Clan, Ghostface Killah somehow found himself faced with the notion that he was falling off. The Staten Island MC was held to a higher standard, and his latest releases Bulletproof Wallets and The Pretty Toney Album were nitpicked by critics, fans, and Ghostface himself. Set to a playful yet raw demeanor, "The Champ" off Fishscale was his return to razor sharp lyricism.
