Product Description


If it's an appetite for pure hip-hop ingenuity with a side of freaky flair you've got, you can't do much better than the Wu-Tang Clan's individual players. Ghostface Killah's 2006 mini-masterpiece, Fishscale, elevated the faceless Clan man to the ranks of the world's greatest MCs by way of hot beats and his supremacy in integrating '70s soul into his sound. The Big Doe Rehab is his bid to hang on to his A-list achievement. Which it does, and handily: If lead single "We Celebrate!" seems pedestrian (Rare Earth's "I Just Want To Celebrate" can't be all that far back in the soul-keepers' vault), hang on till you get to "Walk Around," which reaches in further and pulls up a proper Little Milton track. Or forget about samples altogether and let Mr. Coles win you over by way of his proficiency with hooks ("Killa Lipstick") or skits (the name-checking "White Linen Affair"). Where one bag of tricks runs out, this disc's star and its producers--including the supremely skilled Anthony Acid, who steals the show here--pop up with something else to keep you feeling the Fishscale-caliber momentum. Haters will say this hot streak can't last, but the man won't be handcuffed; Killah can't be stopped. --Tammy La Gorce

Product Description

2007 release, the seventh solo album from one of The Wu-Tang Clan's most recognizable personalities.

He continues that visibility with the Adult Swim College Tour (October) and The Hip Hop Live Tour featuring Rakim (November). Though touring, Ghostface has made time to give his fans another dose of the raw lyricism that he is known for. This December, The Big Doe Rehab is sure to have fans satisfied with their next fix of Ghostface.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great album Dec 13 2007
Format:Audio CD
Ghost does it again, as all the other Wu members prove that they haven't kept up with the game Ghost proves that he only gets better every year.
This album is the best album from a Wu member in a long time.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's not "Fishscale", but all Ghostface Killah fans will be satisfied with "The Big Doe Rehab". Dec 12 2007
By J. Highsmith - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I was introduced to Ghostface Killah when I was introduced to the entire Wu Tang Clan on their debut CD, Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). From beginning to end you could listen to their debut CD as RZA, GZA, Method Man, ODB, Inspectah Deck, Raekwon, Ghostface and even U-God kept your attention with their fiery lyrics and RZA's production. My favorite tracks ended up being the 1st 2 singles, "Protect Ya Neck" and "Method Man", as well as "C.R.E.A.M", "Bring Da Ruckus", "Da Mystery Of Chessboxin'" and "Wu Tang: 7th Chamber". After the first group CD the members of the Wu would release their first round of solo CDs: Method Man dropped "Tical" and ODB dropped "Return To The 36 Chambers: The Dirty Version". Both CDs were pretty good although I clearly had higher expectations for a Method Man solo CD. However, when Raekwon dropped Only Built 4 Cuban Linx with Ghostface playing Steve Nash adding a huge assist to the project, I clearly had a newfound respect for Ghostface Killah. It was clearly evident that he had skills on the first group disc, but after hearing him on the majority of "Only Built For Cuban Linx" it was as if RZA woke up a sleeping giant. Ghostface's lyrics were phenominal on the CD. I had alot of favorite tracks but the 2 tracks that always stick out for me are "Verbal Intercourse" which was a track with Raekwon, Ghostface & Nas and "Guillotine: Swordz" which was a track with Inspectah Deck, Raekwon, Ghostface & GZA. GZA then dropped the classic "Liquid Swords" and it was Ghostface's turn with his 1st solo disc Ironman. Don't get me wrong, "Ironman" was a nice CD but it didn't live up to the success of Raekwon's CD. My favorites included "Iron Maiden", "260", "Poisonous Darts", "Daytona 500" and the smooth "Camay", which featured a sick Teddy Pendergrass sample of the track "Can't We Try". The group came back together with the classic double CD Wu-Tang Forever a year later in 1997. The majority of the double CD featured classic tracks such as the 1st single "Triumph", "Reunited", "A Better Tomorrow", "Hellz Wind Staff", "It's Yourz" etc. The 2nd round of solo CDs didn't go to well for the Wu Tang as a whole. However, Ghostface still managed to drop what I feel is his best solo CD ever on his 2nd go round with Supreme Clientele. Although the 1st single "Apollo Kids" with Raekwon was nice, Ghost had several other bangers such as "Ghost Deini", "Wu Banga 101", "Nutmeg", "We Made It" and one of my all time favorite posse cuts in "Buck 50" which featured Ghost with Redman, Method Man, Masta Killa, & Cappadonna. Ghostface released Bulletproof Wallets a year later and The Pretty Toney Album in 2004. Both CDs were quality releases from Ghost but they couldn't compare to "Supreme Clientele" or "Ironman". However, last year Ghostface released his 5th solo disc Fishscale and in my opinion, that is the closest that he has come to equalling the magic of "Supreme Clientele". "Fishscale" had a nice mix of producers with the likes of J Dilla, MF Doom, Pete Rock, Just Blaze, Sean C & LV, etc. and my favorite tracks ended up being "The Champ", "Shakey Dog", "Kilo", "Clipse Of Doom", "R.A.G.U." and "Beauty Jackson". Ghostface also dropped More Fish in Decemner of last year and that seemed like a Ghostface CD with multiple tracks with the Theodore Unit and tracks that didn't make the final cut of "Fishscale". However, you still got alot of nice tracks on the CD especially "Ghost Is Back" which basically jacked the entire beat of Eric B. And Rakim's "Juice (Know The Ledge)".

Well ladies and gentlemen, nearly a year later and a week before the new Wu CD entitled The 8 Diagrams dropped, Ghostface is back with his 7th solo disc, "The Big Doe Rehab". The CD gets started off with a bang on the track "Toney Sigel", which originally featured Styles P from The Lox. Ghostface & Beanie Sigel have a nice collaboration together along with Solomon Childs. However, I would have chosen the verse that Styles P recorded for the song before Solomon Childs' verse. "Toney Sigel" was produced by Sean C & LV, who along with Diddy did the majority of the production on Jay Z's "American Gangster" CD. Method Man seems to be upset that Ghost busted his groove on the track "Yolanda's House" that also features Raekwon. Ghostface does a good job of storytelling on the track as he tells us how he found Method Man doing the ultimate no no with a paticular woman..lol Raekwon adds a nice verse on the track as well as this is my favorite track on "The Big Doe Rehab". Kid Capri adds even more energy to the single "We Celebrate". This track right here shows you why Ghostface is the most consistent member of the Wu when it comes to releasing solo CDs. "Walk Around" is produced by Ant Acid, who has production credits on "Fishscale" and "More Fish". Ghost tells us a story about some events that happened and the potential consequences of those things. Ghostface's son, "Sun God" joins in on the fun with Trife Da God on "Yapp City". Sun God & Trife did a nice job on the track "Miguel Sanchez" that was featured on "More Fish". This time around Scram Jones produces a track that allows all three rappers to tell you how things can go down in the streets when necessary. Ghostface creates a nice song with "White Linen Affair" as he creates a scene where if he were able to run his own awards show how things would actually go down. Frequency & Scram Jones use a sick Soul Generation sample so you can imagination that you are watching The Toney Awards. It appears to be funny but the track is still up there as one of the best tracks on the CD. "Supa GFK" is a decent track but it ends up being something that was covered before with Redman's multiple chapters of the Sooperman Lover. You would atleast think Ghost would have gave Redman a call to drop a verse on the sample that he made famous in the rap world. "Rec Room Therapy" will be another favorite of Ghostface fans as he drops 2 nice verses and Raekwon and U-God step in to give nice verses as well. "Paisley Darts" mixes members of The Wu Tang Clan and Theodore Unit with Method Man, Raekwon, Cappadonna, Sun God & Trife all joining Ghostface on one track. This track reminds me of "9 Milli Bros" from "Fishscale" that featured the Wu. "Killa Lipstick" employs the same Faze-O "Ridin' High" sample that EPMD used for "Please Listen To My Demo". However, once you hear Ghostface and Masta Killa's verses with Method Man's hook you'll forget about that as this is another nice track on "The Big Doe Rehab".

There aren't too many things that I can find wrong with this CD. While Chrisette Michele made nice contributions on Jay Z's "Lost One" and on Nas' "Can't Forget About You", she seems out of place on Ghost's "Slow Down". "Shakey Dog Starring Lolita" that features Raekwon is a decent track but hopefully it wasn't supposed to be a sequel to Fishscale's "Shakey Dog" because in this case the original track was clearly better. "I'll Die For You" is another decent track, but it doesn't compare to the better tracks on "The Big Doe Rehab" in my opinion.

Overall, this is another quality solo effort from Ghostface Killah. While I may not rate this a 5 out of 5 like some reviewers have, I feel that "The Big Doe Rehab" is right up there with Ghostface's best solo releases. However, if I am giving a 5 out of 5 to "Supreme Clientele" and "Fishscale", it would be hard for me to give the same rating to this CD. However, Ghostface fans will be clearly satisfied with this release. Alot of people have criticized Ghost for his comments about "8 Diagrams" but if core Wu Tang Clan fans can get past that, I feel that they will be able to enjoy his latest solo offering.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Ghost since Supreme Clientel Dec 15 2007
By Robyn Komondy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Ghost steps his game up since his last couple efforts. This album is almost as good as supreme clientel wich is probably closer to 6 stars. But this is definetely a 5 star joint right here.

By Keenan E. Thomas - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
From Ironman to Big Doe Rehab, he has been consistent as ever. You know what you are getting with Ghostface. The 70's samples are there. The depictions of the late 80's and early 90's are there. The creativity is there. He just makes Great music. Must have! two words...."Yolanda's House"!!!!!!!!!

By Walter R. Christian - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
this album was unbelieveable in terms of quality. It has been a year since there was a quality album that I could listen to front to back. As a matter of fact the alst album I listened to front to back was More Fish.

For those of you that do not understand him, listen to him and google some of the terms. You will see the quality of the man known as GFK.

5.0 out of 5 stars I walk around - can't get that cut out my head Dec 18 2007
By N. McPherson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Ghostface killah - I can only say this........he keeps putting out hits. I am a fan of the Wu.....I thought only Rakewon and Meth can kick it but Ghostface.......please don't sleep... On his new album "The big doe rehab" there is this one cut called... "I walk around" that has me playing it over and over again. Call me old school but hearing it and thinking about life how one minuate you could be on top of the world and the next your life is done but you still are trying to get back to that life......this song is a classic(check it out). Rakim is a legend but Ghostface if he keeps putting out hits like this may soon be on his way to that level.
