Yeah, A lot of the beats Just Blaze and Kanye produced around that time, where made in mind with Ghostface to spit on them.

^^ there is actually a freestyle by Ghost over that "Girls Girls Girls" beat that's mad nice, actually he's spitting his verse from "Wisdom Body" over it and it's heat.. i think it's on that mix-CD "The Wallabee Champ".
