A spell locked-up in Rikers obviously hasn't done Ghostface Killah any harm. The Wu member remains as grounded as ever in the realities of life on his sophomore set, Supreme Clientele. Musically, the album is a juiced-up model of the template provided by Ironman, over which Ghostface delivers a sermon of sexual healing and violent provocation pitched precariously somewhere between Marvin Gaye and Malcolm X. "Apollo Kids" pastes together a dramatic backdrop from orchestrated musical punctuation marks, while the primitive R&B grunt of "The Grain" sounds like it could have been recorded live at the Apollo. --Chris Campion

By Peace Daddy VINE VOICE on June 15, 2000
Format: Audio CD
For those of you who thought Wu-Tang was dead, this album proves completely otherwise. After lukewarm Wu releases such as Raekwon's "Immobilarity," Ol' Dirty's "N**ga Please," & RZA's awful "Bobby Digital," (as well as many others) it seemed as if the Wu had lost their special touch. Then comes the build-up to this album. Everybody was saying it's on another level, that it's the Wu of old.....and were they ever right.
Production is handled nicely by several producers. Surprisingly (or not surprisingly as of late) RZA only produces two cuts, "Buck 50" & "Child's Play," but both are definite stand-outs. But the main ingredient that makes this album so good is Ghost himself on the mic. Dude's crazy! He can go from lyrics that really get you thinking cuz they're deep, to lyrics that really get you thinking cuz they make no sense at all! "This rap is like ziti".....hmmmm, does that mean he's "cooking" up a masterpiece? Wouldn't that be the Chef's job? How about "supercalifragilisticespialadoscious, dosciousalaespilisticfragicalisuper!" LOL, it's times like these that give this album continuous spins. I personally like his crazy lyrical style, and he comes at you with so much energy in his flows that you gotta get amped-up every time you listen.
Definitely a must-have album for Wu fans, former Wu fans, and Wu haters worldwide. BUY THIS!

It seems to me that after the first round of 36 chambers, people say the second round Wu falls off. First, lets rewind a bit. Gza's "Beneath the Surface", Inspectah Deck's "Uncontrolled Substance", U-God's "Golden Arms Redemption", and ODB's "Ni@@a Please" were all on fire! One needs to judge an album by what it contains, not on how it rates up against its prodessor. I'll agree that Meth's "T2000" and RZa's "Bobby Digital" were up to pare of what they should've been. Keeping just to Clan official members, not spin-off Wu's, the second rounds haven't fallen of one bit. On "Supreme Clinete", there's no exception. "Ghost Deini", the best track, "Apollo Kids", "Wu Banga 101", "The Grain", and "Cherchez LaGhost" all are bangin'. No bad production or poor lyricism here. Every track is tight, with the expection of track 13(it has a wierd back straching beat thats so annoying). I would have giving Ghost's CD 5 stars, but I felt some tracks were too short, that's unforunate because they had potential(there good anyway); tracks like "Stay True" and the other was one where Ghost sings, but other than that I glad I copped this up when it released....you should too. Oh, check out the others I've mentioned to or see my reviews on them. P.S. Raekwon's new one is only average.

THE WU RETURNS! I have to admit, I thought they were either gonna fall off or grow apart. I thought the RZA had lost his edge and had withdrawn into creative limbo. I was wrong. "Supreme Clientele" is, without a doubt, the best Wu-related album since "Wu-Tang Forever." "T2000" was good, but it wasn't really, TRULY Wu the way "Supreme Clientele" is. Now, I have the bootlegged version, which has 21 tracks, and also a few bonus joints (a PHAT remix of "Wu-Gambinos," a short song called "In the Rain" and a soul duet w/Stevie J. called "R.I.P. General Wise"), and I can honestly say that they are ALL bangin'. There is one song that is annoying as hell because of a backscratch every few beats, but otherwise, the joint is pure meat, no filler. From the cartoon intro (I LOVED that) to the grittiness of "The Grain," the syncopated bounce of "Buck 50," and the usual Gambino narratives ("Saturday Nite," etc.), this is the seminal Wu album for the new millennium. Ghost's bid at Rikers only did him good, apparently. If all the Clan has to go to jail in order to make an album this good, start jackin' fools! It's worth it! I loved this album. If you are Wu, you NEED it. You deserve it.

I bought this alblum only because I had heard it was ill, and because I had been impressed with Ghost's verse on Wu-Tang's "Triumph" Not knowing what to expect, I spent my money and popped the disc in my system. Once the alblum was over, I had to take some time to recover. This may well be the BEST alblum released in the year 2000. Supreme Clientele shines with incredible production provided by various producers (most notably, Wu's own RZA) and incredible lyrical performances by Ghost and an all-star cast of MCs (most notably, GZA, Cappadonna and Superb) From begining to end, this gem shines. Some joints like "One", "Saturday Nite", "Apollo Kids", "The Grain", "Buck 50" and "Cherchez La Ghost" will send your rewind button into early retirement. But to hear the best of the best, you must wait until the end. "Wu Baga 101" (featuring GZA, Raekwon, Cappadonna and Masta Killa) features ill lyrics over an incredible RZA beat. A classic to say the least. Go get this ish, you won't regret it.
