am I the only who thinks Fishscale is way better than 4:21? (I consider Fishscale a very decent effort, and 4:21 is better than Tical 0 (how hard is that?) but I feel it's still kinda weak, especially if you consider Meth's skills).

421 by a landslide. Fishscale was average to me, and 421 was a banger.

i was going to side with fishscale because its gettin a bit of play at the moment but na Meth got it with this album and Ghost is my fave in the clan. 4:21 sticks out more on first listen and has a few more bangers, sure Ghosts album has better concepts and lyrically brilliant but Meth is a combination of both. Fishscale' prod can be a bit boring and uncohesive at times whereas 4:21 is solid the whole way out and has stand out bangers "Konichwa Bitches", " presidential MC".

its a good sign when your argueing which release is better between 2 brill albums in todays hip-hop climate.

i agree, fishscale is a more solid effort, why did you put this in the ruckus forum?

At first I thought Fishscale was easily better, but after a few more listens I think it goes to 4:21 hands down. There are some absolute bangers on 4:21 and although I love some of the concepts and lyrics, specially on tracks like Underwater, I think Fishscale was musically weak.

Fishscale is my favorite solo Wu effort. 4:21's good, but it just doesn't compare.

Its hard to say. As a whole album 4:21 was more consistant. But the tracks on 4:21 were around an 8/10 at best. Fishscale's standout tracks were excellent. Nothing on 4:21 fucks with RAGU, Clipse of Doom, Crackspot, Whip You With A Strap, or Beauty Jackson.


So I guess I gotta hand it to fishscale even though its a bit bloated.

Neither album was all that spectacular but Fishscale by a mile.

the important thing is that you listened to both albums so appreciate them both as two unique albums and stop and compare and contrast carp

3 months since 4:21 dropped, and it still sounds dope as fuck, I've only listened to Fishscale once since it drops, no replay value whats so ever, so i'll stick with my original statement: 4:21 > Fishscale. The 4:21 Intro >> anything Ghost has dropped in years.

Fishscale by a mile. 4:21 is just that album where Meth spends his time replying to his critics (even though they have reason to speak) whereas Ghosts album is perfectly suited to his own style.

good songs on fishscale
(all songs i'd rate at least 4/5):

shakey dog
the champ (best song of the album)
9 milli bros.
r.a.g.u.
be easy
jellyfish

6/18 (without skits)
33.3% good tracks (the rest isn't very special...)

good songs on 4:21:
is it me
fallout
4:20
the glide
say
ya'meen
konnichiwa bitches
presidential mc

8/17 (i don't count the intro as a skit becuz mef is rappin on it)
47% good tracks (the rest sounds like tical 0...)

so both albums aren't classics but 4:21 wins in my opinion
