2007 release, the seventh solo album from one of The Wu-Tang Clan's most recognizable personalities. Ghostface has maintained visibility in the marketplace by touring the country on his own headlining tour, the Wu-Tang Reunion Tour, and many music festivals. 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.
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

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.

We start off with a much rather surprise feature from Beanie Sigel. Both of them come great on "Toney Sigel". "Yolanda's House" brings in some Wu members, Raekwon and Method Man. All three shine equally. This is no pun but Meth has really improved as writer, but he still has that smokey, laid back voice. "We Celebrate" is one of the several feel good, party songs on this album. My only complain is the guitar reverb. It makes the song lose its quality when trying to listen to it closey(the lyrics, i.e.). "Walk Around" has a story about a kid who disrespected his girl. Good listen and you'll probably go back several times for this one. "Yapp City" has one of the "darkest"(you could say) beats here but still maintains a soulful feel. Trife and Sun come very well but are outshined here.
"White Linen Affair" follows what Roc Boys from Jay-z first verse did, a acceptance speech. Full energy, Ghostface sounds like he was on a gallon of Gatorade here, some comedy here, though the obvious joke is really lame, wow. "Supa GFK" is another highlight. Lyrically, its the best here. The same goes for "Rec-Room Therapy". Perfection comes in Raekwon and U-God, which might surprise some Wu fans. He outshines Raekwon and Ghostface, DAMN! "The Prayer" feels like a pointless interlude but its actually nice here. "I'll Die For You" comes back with a great solo performance by Ghostface(minus the usual soulful chorus).
"Paisley Darts" NEEDS to be heard. That's all I'm saying on that. Enormous track. "Shakey Dog Starring Lolita" is better than the original from Fishscale. Wonderful cameo as always with Raekwon and Ghostface fighting for the shine telling their usual tales here. "!" is pointless, or it feels cause no one did anything over this nice musical piece. "Killa Lipstick" invites Meth on the hook and Masta Killa does a great verse here. Good feeling track. The album ends on "Slow Down", which could be THE highlight due to the VERY soulful track and hook by Chrisette Michele.
And that's it. Clocking in just 48 minutes, it leaves you wanting for more. Ghostface gave us Ironman to Fishscale, in between these, he became one of the most consistent rappers in history.This one doesn't break that consistency. I, personally, recommend Fishscale before this one then after getting this album get Ironman. After that, get whatever else you want, you can't fail with one of his albums, some are just better than others.
This album is better then the new Wu-Tang Album (8 Diagrams) by a longshot. 'Yolanda's House', 'Rec-Room Therapy', Shakey Dog Starring Lolita', 'Paisley Darts', 'Killa Lipstick' all feature members of the Wu, and In my opinion are better Wu cuts then anything on 8 Diagrams.
Great album, a classic. Standout tracks for me are 'Supa GFK', 'Yolanda's House', 'Shakey Dog Starring Lolita', 'Slow Down', 'Killa Lipstick'
