Ghostface Killah’s new album, Supreme Clientele 2, is set to be produced by Kanye West and Mike Dean.
The new project will land from the Wu-Tang man in February next year, with the rapper announcing on the r/hiphopheads subreddit page. The first part of the Supreme Clientele series arrived back in 2000, and Ghostface’s fans will be elated that they’ll finally be a sequel to devour.
“SUPREME CLIENTELE 2 IS EXECUTIVE PRODUCED BY: KANYE WEST, MIKE DEAN & PRODUCERPLUGUNI.COM,” he wrote. Adding, “RELEASE DATE: FEB 2022”
It’s somewhat surprising to hear that West and Dean are aligning themselves together again after the latter recently described working on Donda as a “gruelling” task. While West is a genius, working with him is taxing, and it seemed like the super-producer needed a prolonged break before heading back into the studio with his frequent collaborator.
“It was interesting. It was gruelling, lots of hours, lots of changes. It came out great though,” Dean commented. “Kanye had three listening parties. So each listening party was like a test, kind of.
“And after each one, I think he wanted… I can’t talk too much about his process. He took all the information he got from everyone, including online reviews, personal friends’ reviews, and he’d just kind of digest it all and adjust the album the way he wants.”
