More Fish is the sixth studio album by rapper Ghostface Killah, released on December 12, 2006 through the Def Jam label.[1]

The album's name derives from Ghostface's earlier 2006 release, Fishscale. The track "Good", featuring Ghostface's fellow Theodore Unit member Trife Da God and Mr. Maygreen, and produced by Kool-Aid & Peanut, was the first single. It contains one track, "Josephine," which was originally featured on Hi-Tek's Hi-Teknology 2: The Chip, but all other tracks are made of previously unreleased material.

Album information[edit]

The album features several appearances from the members of Theodore Unit (Cappadonna, Shawn Wigs, Trife Da God and Ghostface's teenage son, Sun God), as well as from Redman, Sheek Louch, Killa Sin, Kanye West and singers Amy Winehouse, Eamon, Ne-Yo and Mr. Maygreen, although surprisingly, frequent Ghostface collaborator Raekwon is absent. Production comes from Jim Bond, Hi-Tek, Kool-Aid & Peanut, Madlib, MF DOOM, Mark Ronson, Lewis Parker, Xtreme, Fantom of the Beats, and Ghostface himself.

More Fish debuted at number 71 on the U.S. Billboard 200, selling about 36,000 copies in its first week.[2] As of November 2009, the album had sold 107,000 copies.[3]
