2000 was a vastly different place for hip hop. It wasn't wack(like it is today)by any means, but different. Ghostface stepped out and dropped his second album, Supreme Clientele, and it's a certified banger. With the Wu-Tang sound already in question around this time, Ghost proved he could hold the weight, succeeding in being the most consistant of ALL the Wu members, and this album shows why. Here's the review:
Album Highlights: Everything here KNOCKS, but THE highlights are Nutmeg, Saturday Night, Ghost Deini, Apollo Kids, Buck 50, Sray True, We Made It, Malcolm, Child's Play, and Cherchex Laghost. No filler.
Production: Thumbs up. RZA and some other unknown lay down the tracks on this one. Great music.
Lyrics and Subject Matter: Thumbs up. Even though at times Ghost can say some things that can go over the head of the average individual(sometimes you don't know what he's talking about), his charisma and outstanding flow do more than make up for that.
Originality: Thumbs up. Ghostface works with some new producers on this one, which, aside from the material on this album, is the only thing new here.
The Last Word: A couple of pointless skits means I can't in good consciousness give this 5 stars, but if you eliminate those skits, you have an ALMOST flawless album that MAY or MAY NOT succeed in being better than Ironman. Ghostface showed why he even surpassed Method Man as being the most popular Wu member, and he took it another level with this album. Strongly recommended.
