After Raekwon sounded off on his distaste for 8 Diagrams and RZA defended his production shortly after, Ghostface had now opened up and called the album “bullshit.” In a recent interview with MTV, Ghost laid his cards on the table unapologetically.

Nobody else makes beats so that’s gotta come from him. He could get a beat from Pharrell or Kanye West or whatever but he just likes to do shit for himself. If a ni**a did try to bring a beat in he’d try to co-produce it and f*ck up a ni**a track adding other sh*t that didn’t need to be added and that’s disrespectful…”
