Supreme Clientele debuted at number seven on the Billboard 200 chart and number two on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, while selling 134,000 copies in its first week. On March 8, 2000, it was certified Gold in sales by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The album featured the singles “Apollo Kids” and “Cherchez La Ghost”, which, despite receiving limited airplay, went on to achieve notable chart success. Supreme Clientele gained strong reviews from critics, despite its contrasting sound and style to that of his previous critically successful album Ironman.
Supreme Clientele became the most acclaimed out of all second generation Wu-Tang projects, and featured the most contributions from RZA during this era. It was praised and noted for Ghostface Killah’s obscure and creative lyrics, and for the cohesive format of production. Along with Ironman (1996) and FishScale (2006), it is often ranked as Ghostface Killah’s best work. It has also been regarded as one of the best solo Wu-Tang albums, and has received accolades for being one of the best albums of the 2000s decade. A sequel entitled Supreme Clientele Presents… Blue & Cream: The Wally Era is to follow.
