Ghostface Killah has been dangling a sequel to Supreme Clientele in front of his fans since at least last October — and now there’s an update.
On Sunday (September 25), the Wu-Tang Clan OG hopped on Reddit’s HipHopHeads forum and revealed when Supreme Clientele 2 will arrive and who’s executive producing it.
“SUPREME CLIENTELE 2 IS EXECUTIVE PRODUCED BY: KANYE WEST, MIKE DEAN & PRODUCERPLUGUNI.COM,” he wrote from his own account. “RELEASE DATE: FEB 2022.”
But he didn’t unveil any further details.
In an April interview with Vulture, Ghostface Killah talked about making the original Supreme Clientele and where his mind was 21 years ago.
“When I was rhyming on ‘Nutmeg’ and ‘One’ on Supreme Clientele, I made a style that I couldn’t even tell what it was,” he said. “I just wanted to use some words that sounded good with each other and everybody’s trying to decipher what I mean when, really, I don’t even know what it means because I had no beat.
“But something said, ‘Make a record. Write a verse real quick just putting words together, whether they mean something or not. Just put them together.’”
Ghostface is getting ready to hit the road with GZA and Raekwon on Friday (October 1) as part of the 3 Chambers Tour in celebration of three classic albums — Ghostface Killah’s 1996 debut Ironman, GZA’s 1995 masterpiece Liquid Swords and The Chef’s inaugural 1995 effort Only Built 4 Cuban Linx.
The tour kicks off in Minneapolis, Minnesota and ends on December 18 in Indianapolis, Indiana with stops in cities such as Chicago, Las Vegas, Boston, New York, Baltimore and Atlanta along the way.
