Ghostface Killah

The Wu Tang clan is by far my favorite crew/group of all time. When they were on top of their game, they couldn't be fucked with. One hell of a run indeed. When it comes to their solos, there's a lot of debate when it comes to which one is the best -- some say Liquid Swords, some say Only Built For Cuban Linx, others toss around Ironman. I've even heard Tical get mentioned in a few of those conversations. Well, while there's no denying that a lot of those early albums are classics or near classics, none of them get rotation from me as much as Ghostface's sophmore joint -- Supreme Clientele. It was one of the first joints from a Wu soloist to depart from RZA's exclusive production even though RZA did lay down two tracks -- Buck 50 & Child's Play. I'm not saying it's better than Liquid Swords or Only Built For Cuban Linx but, in my mind, it's just as good. Just so y'all know, though, the credits are fucked up. So, if you download this, the credits might be thrown off. Like, for example, Inspectah Deck doesn't appear on Wu Banga 101 even though he's credited with the appearance. Like I said, just so y'all know. Also, check for the hilarious 50 Cent diss on the Clyde Smith Skit. It cracks me up every time I hear it...
