Today in Hip-Hop History: Wu-Tang Clan released
The Wu-Tang Clan released "C.R.E.A.M." from their breakthrough first album Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) on January 31st, 1994, and it quickly became one of the group's most popular singles. Raekwon's opening verse, "I grew up on the crime side, the New York Times side...," set the tone, followed by Method Man's classic raspy voice on the hook, "Cash rules everything around me, C.R.E.A.M./Get the money; dollar, dollar bill, y'all...," and Inspectah Deck's lyrically inclined verse, "Life as a scumbag, scumbag, "C.R.E.A.M." became the anthem for people who were living the realities of the young black boy's everyday battle in the core, not to mention RZA's production skills on the beat.
