Supreme Clientele [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Gabriel Alvarez
It takes an eclectic hip-hop head to reference Malcolm X, Judy Blume, Sammy Davis Jr., Van Halen, and Pamela Anderson Lee all on one album. But on his championship-caliber follow-up to IRON MAN 1996, the mighty Wu-Tang Clan's Ghostface Killah does that and more as he drops a stellar album that rebels against the mediocrity of today's commercial rap fodder. SUPREME CLIENTELE excels not only because of GFK's bizarro rhymes and breathless flow but also for the contradictory fact that this nearly-perfect disc is an exquisite-sounding mess. We're talking busted loops and "I don't give a [bleep]" skits -- in one interlude, female rappers are rated on their desirability; ...

It takes an eclectic hip-hop head to reference Malcolm X, Judy Blume, Sammy Davis Jr., Van Halen, and Pamela Anderson Lee all on one album. But on his championship-caliber follow-up to IRON MAN 1996, the mighty Wu-Tang Clan's Ghostface Killah does that and more as he drops a stellar album that rebels against the mediocrity of today's commercial rap fodder. SUPREME CLIENTELE excels not only because of GFK's bizarro rhymes and breathless flow but also for the contradictory fact that this nearly-perfect disc is an exquisite-sounding mess. We're talking busted loops and "I don't give a [bleep]" skits -- in one interlude, female rappers are rated on their desirability; new rap agitator 50 Cent is dissed hard in another. Ghost and his Wu friends even rhyme over three consecutive tracks based on classic, well-known breakbeats the exhilarating "The Grain," "Buck 50," and "Mighty Healthy". But no matter; whether freestylin' up a storm at the end of the Juju-produced "One," celebrating rap fame on the victorious "We Made It," or fondly reminiscing about teenage love on "Child's Play," SUPREME CLIENTELE will keep Wu-Tang customers plenty satisfied.
All Music Guide - M.F. DiBella
Most of the members of rap's Roman Empire, the Wu-Tang Clan, experienced sophomore slumps with their second solo releases, whether artistically or commercially usually both. The second offerings from Method Man, Ol' Dirty Bastard, GZA, and Raekwon featured some of the old Wu magic, but not enough to warrant a claim to their once total mastery of the rap game. Just as the Wu empire appeared to be crumbling, along came the second installment from the Clan's spitfire element, Ghostface Killah aka Tony Starks, aka Ironman. Every bit as good as his first release, Supreme Clientele proves Ghost's worthiness of the Ironman moniker by deftly overcoming trendiness to produce an authentic sound in hip-hop's age of bland parity. Some of the Wu's slump could be contributed to Wu-Abbott's aka RZA relative sabbatical. This album has RZA's stamp all over it, but the guru himself only provides three tracks. On this effort, the Wu-Pupil producers at times seem to outdo their teacher. RZA's best composition is the piano-driven, double-entendre-laced childhood retrospective "Child's Play." But of the many standout cuts, it's the slew of disciple producers paying homage to the Wu legacy that truly makes this album fresh-sounding: "Apollo Kids" Hassan, "Malcolm" Choo the Specialist, "Saturday Nite" Carlos "Six July" Broady, "One" JuJu of the Beatnuts, "Cherchez la Ghost" Carlos Bess, "Wu Banga 101" Allah Mathematics. While the album is complete and characteristically Wu-sounding, each track is distinctive lyrically, thematically, and sonically. Ghostface's Supreme Clientele is a step toward the Wu-Tang Clan's ascent from the ashes of their fallen kingdom. The once slumbering Wu-Tang strikes again.

    Enter Supreme Clientle

    It's been a long time but if supreme clientle is the blueprint of the wu sound for the millenium then they are on their way to reclaiming the throne in hip hop they once dominated 4-5 years ago. Even with Cash Money,No Limit, Rocafella and Ruff Ryders none of them dominate as the Clan once did. With the last couple of releases from selected members and wu-affliates that's been hard to say. But with this one release the buzz is that the wu are on their way back. The reason: Rza. His influence is all over this album and he must be proud since one:it's the closet wu-sound since ironman '96, two: the posse cuts wu banga, buck 50 as well as childs play and mighty healthy are banging. With Supreme Clientle it proves that the Wu are not only back but real fans know they never left.

    the wu dominates again

    The wu-tang has returned to show that it can dominate still. And this album is sweeter than ever. With new innovations coming from the producers, this album shows where the wu and hiphop are headed. Definenetly a good album that you should pick up. Best track is Apollo Kids but many come right behind it.

    The Wu Is definitely back!!!

    This album is good. Its really how hard to tell how good it is upon first listen, cause the complex vocab ghost spits will have you rubbing your head and pressing rewind. This is definitely an album that showcases how dope the wu can be when they try, for this is the the best representation of the 2000 wu tang clan. Beats are definitely back on par here after mediocre last efforts from raekwon and the GZA. Ghost decided to branch out and work with several producers, and one again, the RZAs beats are shadowed by efforts from JuJU and other up and coming Wu-style producers (Carlos Broady). I wont even mention individual tracks, cause all of them are dope in ther own way. Dont even bother with the track listing, cause ghost pulled some Genius/Liquid Swords, credits mean nothing, all songs are mixed around type sh-t. Supreme Clientele is impressive at the least, and ghostface shines as being one of the best lyricists of 2000. The only thing stopping this from being a classic is that sometimes ghost is just too complex, and his lyrical darts only have meaning to himself (and prehaps other wu-fam). Otherwise BUY THIS ALBUM!!

    Another Wu-banger, will it ever stop?!!!!!!!

    There's no sophmore jinx here, Tony Starks blesses us once more. I love the way he took us from a 70's theme on Ironman to an 80's theme on Supreme Clientele. From the old Ironman cartoon skits to the bangin classic old skool break beat to the classic Child's Play about grammer school crushes. There's also appearences by Wu members Rza, Gza, Raekwon, Method Man and Redman. There's also guest appearences by others that you'll be more than impressed by like Superb and 60 second Assassin. Point blank Ghost is one of the best and can't be categorized.
