Thread: Supreme Clientele album title

  1. #1

    Default Supreme Clientele album title

    A few days ago, I was watching a documentary on kung fu films on IFC and it showed a Chinese salon named Supreme Clientele. It looked like it was built in the 70s or 80s. I'm pretty Ghostface must have been inspired by one of these salons. Random, but interesting information.

    No.

    Its impossible that that phrase was used before 2000.


    Its highly UNlikely that any thing Ghost has ever said has been said before. We talking slang bruce lee's of this r a p s h i t nigga.


    No go on with yourself and dont come in here disrespecting the god like that again. Fucking Chinese Salons.

    1.14mins into it...

    yeah it seem a bit far fetched that Ghostface got it from a Chinese Salon, but remember....this is Ghostface, so it's actually quite feesable that he got it from there..

    He's stated before that the original name for his 1st LP was supposed to be "Ironman Supreme Clientelle" but decided to go with just Ironman.

    I guess it is possible he got the name from a chinese salon in a film (then again this could be made up - can't verify w/o seeing it for myself); even their MC names appear to come from kung fu films (eg Ol' Dirty and the Bastard, Method Man) yet they never seem to state this themselves (at least not to my knowledge anyway).

    Having just seen the above links, I guess it's obvious supreme clientelle's a popular name for hair salons.
