The 50 Best Ghostface Killah Songs

37. Ghostface Killah "Holla" (2004)

Album: The Pretty Toney Album
Producer: Ghostface Killah
Label: Def Jam

Only Ghostface can pull something like this off. Tony treats the original track of the Delfonics' "La La Means I Love You" like an instrumental as he begs the listener to "listen to me!" There's no direction here, just fly raps over a classic R&B track. Pretty Toney would use this approach later on The Big Doe Rehab with "Supa GFK." Johnny "Guitar" Watson's "Superman Lover" and as well as prior with "The Watch" which supposed to appear on Bullet Proof Wallets but he couldn't clear the Barry White sample in time. —Angel Diaz
