About C.R.E.A.M.

"C. R. E. A. M." (an acronym of "Cash Rules Everything Around Me") is a song by the American hardcore hip hop group Wu-Tang Clan, released on March 15, 1994 as the third single from their debut studio album Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) (1993). The song was produced by the group's de facto leader RZA, and contains a sample of the Charmels' 1967 song "As Long As I've Got You" throughout. It features two verses from members Raekwon and Inspectah Deck, who discuss their upbringings while living in New York City, and Method Man, who sings its hook. Its music video, featuring all Wu-Tang Clan members in New York City, was released in 1994. "C. R. E. A. M." received universal praise from music critics, many of whom described it as one of the best songs on Enter the Wu-Tang. Despite its praise, the song did not perform as well commercially, only peaking at number 60 on the US Billboard Hot 100 in 1994. Since its release, the song has been called one of the greatest hip-hop songs of all time, with some even describing it as one of the greatest songs of all time. It has since been sampled by numerous artists and was certified Gold in the United States in 2009.
