Crypto Rules/d Everything For A Moment

Back in 2017 I wrote about Ghostface backing the C.R.E.A.M. token. This was right around the time when everybody and their uncle was pushing an ICO as a means of making a lot of money. Well that hype went down with a complete crash of the market in 2018. That was also while the market was being over rug pulls and other scams. Which attracted attention of government bodies like the SEC. And like that it was all gone.

At the end of the this wave was Young Dirty Bastard with the introduction of the Dirty Coin, which was supposed to launch via a ICO too. He had some nice ideas to connect this with funding of his album, books, and video games. But as a holder you’d also be able to use it as payment for concerts, merch and music by ODB.

Pretty ambitious plan, video games take years to make. But a plan that sounded much better than most who jumped on the bandwagon back then. Sadly, there is not much news to be found after this initial press moment. At least I can’t find any updates on it. This is one of those cases where you’d like to see a website with updates. What I did find is that the TAO Network, that Dirty Coin was supposed to use, looks pretty solid and seems to be still in use. It actually has branched out to include NFT’s. Something which would have been interesting for Dirty Coin with its music focus. For now I do have to conclude that it never launched.

I actually thought the same happened to C.R.E.A.M. So imagine my surprise that it actually launched and is still being traded, at a current price of about $ 23,-. According to Coin Market Cap the token launched back in 2020 on the Ethereum network, almost three years after it was announced. About 6 months after this it hit it’s all-time high with a price of $368,26. Shortly after that, it fell down hard, and has been going down ever since. Which is in line with the rest of the market. One other thing that I noticed, is that there is no notice of Ghostface any more. Nor did I see Ghost mention this. It seems like they parted ways, or he cashed in.

In the years since we have seen up and downs in the markets, as well as the rise & fall of NFT’s. The infamous Once Upon A Time In Shaolin made smart use of these digital contracts when the record was resold to a DAO. Giving the fans a little bit of hope that they might actually listen to it one day. I know they were working on bringing this to the public, but it has already been two years since. Hopefuly they will find a way.

After this Ghostface Killah did a NFT collabration with Fake Rare Pepe. Something I did not hear about earlier and have yet to hear any music from. It seems Rolling Stone and other outlets also did no hear about this when they reported on Ghost selling unreleased lyrics from the 90’s as NFT’s on the marketplace S!NG Market. Again, no news after the initial announcement. And a quick search turns up no results. Which makes me wonder if any were ever actually sold. You’d think people would fiend for some vintage Ironman lyrics. This was the period he was dealing with a lot.

One of the most surprising things that happened with NFT’s might be U-God. He partnered up with Melos to release two songs at the beginning of this year. The timing of this makes it surprising because nobody was talking about NFT’s anymore, and the hypetrain was sort of over. Nevertheless, he did move forward, and the songs are actually being offered on his website. Proof that they have actually sold can be found on OpenSea, where one can also listen to the full songs. They’re nice, but nothing to unique to me.

Writing all this down, I might have missed some things. Yet I can’t stop but wonder if it would not have been best if they had worked together back in 2017. Setting up an ICO, or backing a token, with the option of having NFT’s in the future. This would have been an interesting move. At least Bar Sun had the vision of what it could all do. Mind you, NFT’s are not something that was completely new. Nor was crypto. The year 2017 just saw a boom, same for 2021. The tech was already there for a couple of years. Maybe the future does hold something interesting for Wu & tech.

When Will Ghost Finish Supreme Clientele 2?

Back in September 2021 Ghostface Killah claimed that Supreme Clientele 2 was on the horizon, and would arrive February 2022. Kanye West, Mike Dean & Producer Plug Uni would be executive producing, and with that there was a little bit of hope for the sequel to the lauded sophomore LP by Ghost.



This was preceded by an Instagram post in October 2020 where Ghost confirmed working on it with a caption saying “WU-BLOCK.. SUPREME 2 IN THE MAKING!!!! #wutangforever #ghostfacemusic #supremeclientele #wublock #ghostfacekillah“. Again people were hyped. But so far, we have gotten nothing.

The original Supreme Clientele holds a special place in a lot of peoples hearts, and a sequel to the album would be something special like a sequel to Only Built For Cuban Linx…, which we got back in 2009. And for which Raekwon also announced a third part. That being said, this is not the first time we heard about the Supreme Clientele 2.

The announcements actually go back to 2010 when it was first mentioned, and January 2011, when Ghost posted a video on Youtube in which he said it was coming. Which state it was, was still unknown at the time. It wasn’t untill February 2013 when he did an interview with Montreality and talked about the album:

Blue & Cream. Hopefully, hopefully this summer, hopefully this summer. Like, maybe like August or something like that. I’m going to try for August, September or maybe July, you know what I mean. But I think August might sound more reasonable if i can do it. I shouldn’t set it, because sometimes when I say a date, it don’t ever fuck around and whatchama. But I gotta put it out because I’ve been sitting on it for like, going on three years.


In the same interview Ghost also mentioned his DOOMSTARKS project and 12 Reasons To Die. When fall came, there was no DOOMSTARKS project. 2013 only saw the release of the Adrian Younge collaboration 12 Reasons To Die. And with the recent passing of DOOM, their collaboration project may never be finalized.

It wasn’t untill deep in 2014, when Ghostface spoke to DX Daily and mentioned that Supreme Clientele 2: Blue & Cream was 85% done. He still wanted to get some people on there, and samples had to be cleared. A weird claim when the album was supposed to be ready a year ago. But creative processes could always change course. So who is to say what happened and what the state was. In hindsight, that 15% seems to be further from completion than ever.

By now it is safe to say that we have been waiting for more years than Supreme Clientele was old when it was first announced. On multiple occasions it seemed almost done, just some samples clear. But we have to take into account that Tony has been clear on the fact he does not work with deadlines any more, ever since the problems that arose out of that with Ironman. So yeah, by this point a lot of people have given up on ever seeing this album. And I’m afraid that any mention of this album without anything to back it up, will just water down the hype more.

That is not to say the Ghost has been sitting still. Since 2011 he has had a steady stream of music. From Wu Massacre to Wu Block to 12 Reasons To Die, Sour Soul, 36 Seasons, The Ghost Files, Ghostface Killahs, Czrface meets Ghostface. Ranging in quality from great to filler. And he has had some more than questionable business endeavours in the form of his recent Christmas EP and now a album in two versions on the Stem Player.

Especially the stem player has people talking. Since this was first used for the release of Donda, and Mike Dean & Ye were supposed to help up finish the album with Ghost, people are asking if this would be the much anticipated sequel. Something that would me sense for this expensive project. But so far it just seems like this is a normal collection of tracks for this project without any further vision as far as I know.

At this point, only time will tell when we will see it if ever. But hopefully it will be earlier than we hear Once Upon A Time In Shaolin or The Cure. Because at this point I got my money on hearing that million dollar album sooner than we’d be hearing Supreme Clientele 2: Blue & Cream.

Ghostface is backing an ICO

The amount of people, spending their days investing & trading in cryptocurrencies is still growing. Once seen as a fad by some 3-4 years ago. Crypto is most certainly here to stay. And with the new wave of attention, there is the introduction of ICO’s. This one quite nicely, or quite standardly, named C.R.E.A.M. A reference to the famous Wu-Tang Clan song of the same name about money. But also slang for money.

The interesting tidbit about this ICO is that it is backed by one of the original nine members of the Wu-Tang Clan: Ghostface Killah. Known for his vivid wordplay & storytelling on a crime & fantastiscal level. Though C.R.E.A.M. does play a role as a recurring topic in many of his songs and albums. The always colourfull Tony Starks is not really known for his investment skills. One is only left to wonder what to make of this.

One of Wu Tang Clan’??s members is apparently throwing himself behind a new ICO

New Clan Album Coming Titled Wu-Tang: The Saga Continues

October the 13th 2017 will bless us with another Wu-tang Clan album. The title of the album is Wu-Tang: The Saga Continues. (Not to be confused with Puffy’s 2001 release.) The album is headed by DJ Allah Mathematics with RZA on the executive duties.

For years, Math has had the idea of putting together a body of music using modern and legendary equipment such as ASR10 with vocal performances by Wu-Tang Clan members and other prominent MCs. With The Saga Continues he’s created a masterpiece. We at 36 Chambers ALC are honored to work with Mathematics and Wu-Tang Clan to put out a great piece of art.

The Bill Murray Clause Was False

Remember when the internet lost its mind over something in the contract of Once Upon A Time IN Shaolin with Bill Murray. Like so often, nobody actually fact checked it. And thus another myth was born. This was off course not helped by the silence from the party selling it.

Some of these things might be cleared by the release of a new book. This will detail the whole business deal and how fans got srewed out of hearing the music they love, adored and supported to through the trials & tribulations of the Wu-Tang. Reading the excerpt from the book, it looks like this will be a quick cash grab, at the long tail of the interest in the book. While Shkreli is still in the news. But other than a few interesting facts, be prepared to be dissappointed on a literay plane. Just like this album let the fans down.

…an interested observer online tweeted a (false) quote from a (falsified) contract that claimed to show the (entirely bogus) clause that allowed Wu-Tang Clan and/or Bill Murray — a real-life acquaintance of RZA’s — to steal the album back. As sometimes happens with false tweets about bogus clauses in falsified contracts, the media picked up the story and reported it as if it were real. “I don’t think Bill was ever even aware of the album,” says Bozorgmehr.

Cyrus Bozorgmehr’s new book, Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, purports to tell the untold tale of the whole strange episode.
