SU-PREME (aka SUPREME KOURT), IS A WU-TANG CLAN AFFILIATED PRODUCER. SU-PREME WAS SUNZ OF MAN'S MAIN PRODUCER IN THEIR EARLY DAYS WHEN THEY WERE KNOWN AS 'DA LAST FUTURE'. HE NOW PRODUCES MAINLY FOR SUNZ OF MAN MEMBERS HELL RAZAH AND SHABAZZ THE DISCIPLE.
THEIR FIRST TESTAMENT BEGAN IN 1995 WITH ALARIC WILDER (aka SU-PREME) AND DONALD MIDGETTE, PUTTING TOGETHER A GROUP OF RAPPERS WHICH INCLUDED HELL RAZAH, ZODIAC KILLA, PRODIGAL SON & KILLA PRIEST, INTO A STUDIO TO RECORD FOR THEIR PRODUCTION COMPANY; 'RED HOOK RECORDS'. AN UNDERGROUND TEST PRESSING HIT THE EAR OF PRINCE RAKEEM (NOW KNOWN TO THE WORLD AS 'RZA' OF THE LEGENDARY 'WU-TANG CLAN') AND THE REST IS HISTORY. NAMING THE GROUP 'SUNZ OF MAN' AND RECORDING NEW TRACKS WITH ADDITIONAL RAPPERS, SHABAZZ THE DISCIPLE AND 60 SEC, WU-TANG CHOSE A COUPLE OF TRACKS PRODUCED BY SU-PREME: "SOLDIERS OF DARKNESS" & "NO LOVE WITHOUT HATE" TO RELEASE ON THEIR WU-TANG RECORD LABEL IMPRINT. THE REMAINING TRACKS PRODUCED BY SUPREME, 4TH DISCIPLE, PEDRO & Y-KIM, HAVE NOW BEEN MADE AVAILABLE TOGETHER ON THIS ALBUM FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME. WE HOPE YOU ALL ENJOY THE FIRST TESTAMENT OF 'SUNZ OF MAN'!
Because of the business side of the venture, the 'Jazzy Five' as a group never recorded again. They've all remained friends and heroes to their people in Soundview, influencing rappers like Lord Tariq from the Hip hop music duo, 'Lord Tariq and Peter Gunz' and Will Traxx, who have recorded hot tracks of their own as well as Hip hop producer Minnesota, who's worked with Mos Def and a host of others. Regardless of how others perceive their status in Hip hop music history, the 'Jazzy Five' and their fans know they definitely rocked the house when given the chance. Devoid of ego, each artist had an original, distinctive style and no one emcee in their group dominated the others, unlike some other groups out at that time.
AS ONE OF THE FOUNDING MEMBERS AND PRIMARY PRODUCERS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE SEMINAL WORK OF WU-TANG AFFILIATE SUNZ OF MAN, SU-PREME PLAYED A KEY ROLE IN THE GROUP’S IDENTITY AND SOUND WHILE CONTRIBUTING MEMORABLE TRACKS SUCH AS THE SINGLE “NO LOVE WITHOUT HATE”, “NATURAL HIGH” AND “ISRAELI NEWS” ON THEIR DEBUT RELEASE 'THE LAST SHALL BE FIRST'. BEING AN INDUSTRY INSIDER FOR OVER 20 YEARS, SU-PREME IS ABLE TO TAP INTO PRICELESS WISDOM GAINED FROM HIS VAST EXPERIENCE IN MUSIC PRODUCTION AND KNOWLEDGE OF FILM DIRECTION, CINEMATOGRAPHY, AND EDITING.
SU-PREME (aka A. SU-PREME WILDER) IS A DIRECTOR, CINEMATOGRAPHER, VIDEOGRAPHER, EDITOR AND MUSIC PRODUCER. HE IS ALSO THE CEO OF 'SUPREME MEDIA' AND 'GIT RITE MUZIC'.
