Ghostface Vs T.I.

While at Best Buy today to pick up a copy of Fishscale, I observed a mind-boggling trend. Despite the record being dubbed a potential "Album of The Year" by folks everywhere, there was little or no turnout in favor of Shaolin's Strongest - the artist formerly known as Ghostface Killah. Many of the buyers I ran into (at least 7 peeps) picked up both T.I.'s King and Ghost's Fishscale (geniusly displayed side-by-side by Best Buy), pondered for about 30 seconds before making the ultimate decision - that popularity is King over superiority.

No doubt, T.I.'s latest entry is a solid joint, and since this is Houston Tx, T.I. - a southern artist wins almost by default.

I beg to differ.

Fishscale is everything King isn't: a crisp, crucial and convoluted musical journey. Plus, $6.99 for a potential classic sounds like a bargain to me!
