Watch Supreme’s Video For Latest Single, ‘Thug Thizzle’

Life ebbs and flows with various degrees of difficulty and hardship. Through much of his extreme lows in life, SUPREME attributes much of his resilience to the love from his friends and family. This uplifting theme of love is explored throughout his introspective debut EP Love Jones, released on all digital streaming platforms on last Monday (21st June).

Now the Hip-Hop newcomer revels with loved ones in his self-directed music video for the project’s lead single ‘Thug Thizzle’. Featuring a brief cameo appearance from his father Ghostface Killah (who’s also heard throughout the Love Jones EP), much of the video is shot in the streets of Supreme’s native Staten Island’s Wu-Tang Clan District. The video serves as the first of seven parts to Supreme’s short film, ‘Love Jones’.

Hip-Hop Newcomer Supreme Releases New Single, ‘Thug Thizzle’ From Forthcoming EP

Carving his own lane in rap music as the son of a legendary emcee of arguably one of hip-hop’s most recognizable brands is no easy feat. But Staten Island native SUPREME is more than ready to take on the task, with a brand new EP Love Jones, set to release this summer. The project’s lead single, ‘Thug Thizzle’, a super smooth joint which anthems taking life’s ups and downs in your stride.

Speaking on the release, Supreme say: “‘Thug Thizzle’ is basically me saying ‘I’m going to be alright with whatever life throws at me. There was a time in college- around the end of my sophomore year at Morgan State -where I wanted to drop out. I felt regretful, like if I never went to college I would have already been progressing in my music career. The only reason I went to college was to be a role model to my younger sister, and to make my mother proud. I was the only one in my immediate family to go to college. When Nipsey Hussle was murdered, I gained a new perspective. It’s like it took for his passing to put me back in my place. That’s when I started writing ‘Love Jones’. I started merging music with school work, and I started getting A’s.”

Based on the importance of relationships with family and loved ones, the Love Jones EP takes an honest approach, addressing relationships with his mother, brother, and even his complicated relationship with his father (woven throughout the project are recordings of real phone conversations between Supreme and his father, Ghostface).
