Ghostface Killah - Supreme Clientele

Much like many of the later Wu-Tang albums, Supreme Clientele is not produced entirely by The RZA. He only composed four tracks, while other lesser known producers contributed the remaining beats. However RZA did oversee the overall production and mixing of the songs and skits on the album, being listed as executive producer along with Ghostface. The album's acclaim is notable considering that most of the Wu-Tang's second solo releases were considered disappointments, while several critics consider Supreme Clientele to be superior to Ghostface's debut Ironman.

The album contained a diss toward then-up-and-coming 50 Cent. In the "Clyde Smith" skit Wu-tang member Raekwon, with the use of voice distortion, plays the role of a man named Clyde Smith. Clyde Smith addresses 50 Cent and his 1999 song "How to Rob," in which 50 Cent jokingly rhymes about how he'll rob many popular music artists, including RZA, Raekwon, and Ghostface. The skit drew a response from 50 Cent, who would later dis Wu-tang in an underground mixtape freestyle.

As, one of the greatest solo Wu-Tang efforts, Ghostface would continue to make albums to some acclaim, but Supreme Clientele was considered the best of his works. The RZA's production was highly praised and the lyrical ability of Ghostface at the time was very impressive.

This IS Ghost's best joint. True story. I had it on tape back in Y2K and had played it in the car so much I nearly destroyed it.
So much greatness on Supreme Clientele, it's disgusting.
And about the 50 feud, GZA put the nail in the coffin on Pro Tools. 50's retired and irrelevant these days anyway.
