Ghostface Killah is the latest rapper to revisit a seminal body of work in their catalog with a sequel. The Wu-Tang Clan member has announced that his new album, Supreme Clientele 2, will be dropping in February 2022.
According to the Staten Island native—who personally revealed the news with a post on Reddit’s r/hiphopheads page—the album will be executive produced by Kanye West, as well as Mike Dean and Producer Plug Uni.

In 2020, Ghostface initially shared his plan to release a sequel to Supreme Clientele. Those plans were delayed until now, and likely due to the COVID-19 pandemic and other unforeseen factors. However, if Supreme Clientele 2 is able to come close to duplicating the magic that was captured on the original, the wait will be well worth it. The album is not only considered one of Ghostface’s best, but also one of the greatest long-players of its time. The involvement of Kanye West—whose production on Jay-Z’s The Blueprint album was inspired in part by the sonics of Supreme Clientele—could find the boardsman returning to his sample-based roots, making for what should be a cinematic meeting of the minds once the project officially drops. Kanye, who currently has his hands in various production pots, including his work on forthcoming projects from Fivio Foreign and Pusha T, recently lent his talents to Abstract Mind’s project and has a playlist of unreleased music in the works.
