Meaning

A reference to Wu-Tang’s song, C.R.E.A.M. (Cash Rules Everything Around Me). The song is considered by many hip-hop listeners as a classic.

The hook performed by Method Man has been sampled by many rappers. The phrase “Cream” has become a slang term for money. C.R.E.A.M. is one of the highest charting Wu-Tang Clan singles, reaching #60 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The music video for “C.R.E.A.M.” features the members of the Wu-Tang Clan starting off at the projects in Staten Island and moving on to a more lavish lifestyle of champagne and Mercedes. The video for this single also features classic early ‘90s urban New York styles of dress, as the majority of the people in the video are wearing goose-downs, Champion hoodies, black skullies, and either wheat or black Timberlands.
