B1. "Da Mystery Of Chessboxin'" - (Album Version)
Released as a single in early 1994, the song was produced by Wu-Tang Clan leader RZA, and samples The Charmels' 1967 song, "As Long As I've Got You".
As I'm sure you all know by now, "C.R.E.A.M." features a verse from Raekwon, a long verse from Inspectah Deck and the hook performed by Method Man: "Cash rules everything around me, C.R.E.A.M./Get the money; dollar, dollar bill, y'all."
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.
It 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.
