Tony Yayo: Ghost Didn’t Write Supreme Clientele

 

I didn’t even realize there was a 50 feature in the new SPIN with Amy Winehouse on the cover, but they went ahead and posted the writer’s entire transcript and it has some keel-over-laughing gems. The best part is where the writer is talking to 50 about not cursing on records and being artistic. He brings up Ghostface, and in between scoffs, Tony Yayo claims that some kid named Superb from Far Rockaway wrote the entire album. Just go here, because you really have to read this shit. Other than that it’s a pretty good interview. Curtis even takes a moment to stick up for his baby moms other baby daddy.

Related: Does anybody remember Ghost ever saying he wasn’t gonna curse on record anymore? Because I sure don’t.  

EDIT: Ok, a reader just hit me up and jogged my memory. Superb was a kid from Rae’s American Cream Team, who allegedly claimed to have written most of SC. I vaguely recall hearing something like that. Supposedly there is an mp3 of a jail phone call from him where he speaks on it, as referenced in this wutang-corp.com thread. If it exists and somebody has it, break down. Props to David for the info.

UPDATE: Maura from Idolator was kind enough to point me to the interview where Ghost claimed he wasn’t gonna curse on his next album. I remember when OhWord posted it, I was on Ghost overload and I meant to go back and listen, but never did. Shame on a ninja.  

UPDATE 2: Case closed. Here’s the Superb phone call. Props to Alex

    Rappers in the game are shook of Yayo…the outsiders who don’t know nothing think he’s soft and pussy….
    ================================================
    I know a few emcees and not one of them is scared of that dude. Where do you get that from? Which emcee told you they were scared of him? Also, he IS soft and a pussy. Anyone who was involved in that niggerdome is soft and a pussy.

    ^ lol… hahaa

  15. Two-Times Says:

    but Biggavel is funny….

  16. E AKA THE REAL NORIEAGA Says:

    Naw, seriously he’s like a more ghetto version of Akon. He won’t be the international star that Akon is(uggggh) but I bet with the right promoting and production he could go platinum.

  17. Two-Times Says:

    but I bet with the right promoting and production he could go platinum.

    ^ platinum ??? … u really think so….

    I was actually thinking about if Jimmy released that Ballin on a major label (ex. Interscope, Def jam, Atlantic) he would have probably defintely gone platniun… He sold around 400K (on Koch!) or so, so with a major behind that song & Jimmy he could have done real big numbers…
    Atleaste that’s what I was thinking…
    People buy into his image…

    Yeah, I think he could go platinum because other R&B singers have sold pretty well, like Akon, T-Pain, and R. Kelly.

    and co-sign, Jones could have gone platinum on a major but who knows maybe he owns more publishing by being on KOCH.

  19. EnglandRepresent Says:

    What up Nah?

    lmao @ ‘the peanut gallery’ in that Spin interview. Fif comes off reasonably well (nhjic) but his little chump sidekicks are just fuckin monkeys in the zoo, throw ’em a banana (some change) and they’ll jump up and down and kiss your ass……muppets, the lot of ’em, which includes Mazidrop Two!

  20. nunya bizness Says:

    Tony Yayo needs to go sit his butt down somewhere. Nobody care about him, his music, or his clique. Time’s up dude!

  21. dockevoc Says:

    Lord Superb is all over the Clientel album – it’s also the last wu cd executive produced by the RZA – i’m sure alot of heads had alot of input on it, but there’s no fucking way ‘perb wrote the whole shit.

  22. Spirit Says:

    Superb was on two cuts on ‘Supreme Clientelle’: ‘Ghost Deini’ and ‘We Made It’. His ‘Gimme some m*therfuckin Cognac or I’ll kill you’ is one of the classic lines on SC. For the longest time, I thought that was Ghost doing that verse, till I checked the credits and listened closer. maybe that gives some credence to Superb’s claims? Who knows…

  23. JD Says:

    THIS IS 100% TRUE………

    SUPERB is my man

    Edgemere P.J’s Far Rock

    i have the ORIGINAL recordings with SUPERB laying down the guide for ghost…..

    why do you think it was his best ever lp………???????

    cause it came outta far rock baby and thats real talk

    p.s. SUPERB coming to the end of a 5 year bid………….

    i knew this would come out one day………..!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  24. shakeswilla Says:

    Yayo only said that because as he really really cares about real hip-hop and real MCing. Yayo has doesn’t have ghost writers becuase he is sooooo good at rapping. We’ve all heard him. I mean lets compare.

    Yayo smacking children>Ghost’s entire body of work

    also on the clyde smith skit, thats just ghost popping off played at half speed, there ain’t no fancy voice distorter. It’s obviously ghost because clyde says shit like

    “if you think you gon’ do that lil’.. tom and jerry shit on me, and, and and have my fingers smashed on the ceiling? Never dude, ima snacth you out that little iceberg t-shirt you got on” yea.. don’t fuck with ghost

  25. Matikman Says:

    Yes Ghostface Killah did say while doing a radio interview with a Denmark radio station that on his new album he was not going to curse…..if you don’t believe me check the link (if it still works)

  26. Specialist Says:

    PEOPLE ARE FUCKIN FOOLED, WHY BELIEVE WORDS COMIN OUT A MOUTH THAT CANT REACH A GOLD ALBU AND GET RESPECT IN HIS OWN FKIN HOOD, PFFF ANYWAYS BITCHES GO COP SUPREME CLIENTELE IF YOU DIDNT OR ..WELL GET A COPY OF THOUGHT OF A PREDICATE DONKEY AND SEE WHOS WHO, PEACE TO ALL MY WU FANS FOR NOT BELIEVIN SHIT BERNARD IN DA YARD SAYS LOL

  27. Karma Says:

    1. This claim is coming from the man who is named Yayo, but beats up 14 year olds cuz he’s so gangster
    2. Superb is hot but half of supreme clientele comes from old Ghost darts he kicked on freestyles during 36 chambers promo tours
    3. Anyone who thinks a n*gga besides Ghost could write Mighty Healthy or Nutmeg is smoking crack
    4. I bet Wu go platinum and 50 stay wood.

  28. toowonfyve Says:

    he needa worry bout who writin his garbage or why he look like Beetlejuice in the pic for

  29. Metal Lungies » Blog Archive » As if ‘Metal Lungies’ wasn’t going to comment on this… Says:

    […] Not to question Yayo’s credibility (that is, if he has any), but there’s only 2 people whose opinions matter as to this claim — Superb, and Ghostface himself. Superb had already spoken on it (props to Nah Right for the link, and here’s a transcript, too), and his claims are in line with Yayo’s, that he, and not Ghost, wrote Supreme Clientele. Ghost hasn’t commented on it, but I’d guess that he’d disagree with Superb — I doubt highly that Ghost would come out and say, “Yea, Yayo’s right, I didn’t write that album. Sorry, everyone!” Personally, I have a hard time buying Yayo’s, and Superb’s, claims… and it’s not just because of my Ghostface-fan bias. […]

  30. shit monkey Says:

    FUCK SUPERB… He didn’t write shit… If you know anything about Ghost, you know that the shit he says on SC is exactly how he wrote his shit for 36 Chambers, and for Ironman… You’re tryna tell me Ghost didn’t write… “we at the weed gate, waitin for jake, we want eight ravioli bags, two thirsty villians yelling bellyaches…” Have you heard superb rap?? and what the fuck does it matter what bitch ass Marvin says/thinks???
