Former Wu-Tang Clan Affiliate Lord Superb Passes Away

Lord Superb has apparently passed away. DJ Premier, Roc Marciano and Lord Jamar are three of the many who took to social media to mourn the passing of the former Wu-Tang Clan affiliate. The tweets starting pouring in on Tuesday (October 9).

Lord Jamar wrote a heartfelt tribute in an Instagram post.

“Rest In Power to my baby bro Jamel Bibbs p.k.a. LORD SUPERB,” he wrote. “I’m saddened by his passing, because I watched this talented young soul grow up from the age of 16, but because of poor choices he never truly lived up to his POTENTIAL…PERB was one of the illest/hoodest/funniest/knowledgable individuals I’ve ever met.

“It’s a shame the world has never heard his BEST MATERIAL, which was recorded with me at 560 State St. in Brooklyn during the mid 90’s. I love u Perb, & u will be missed.”

The Far Rockaway, Queens native was a former member of Raekwon’s American Cream Team but has been estranged from the crew for over a decade. Superb claimed to have “ghostwritten” Ghostface Killah’s entire 2000 solo album Supreme Clientele, something Ghostface adamantly denied. 

“That’s just nonsense,” he said in a 2007 interview. “I still put mad shit out. ‘Perb [Superb] is Rae’s [Raekwon] man. He been in the studio a few times while we’re doing shit. He ain’t write shit. All ‘Perb contributed was a couple of lines that you could put in the air.

“Even if he did write a verse, he could never make an album of mine. He couldn’t make an album, you feel me? I made Supreme Clientele what it is. Those are my stories, based around what they’re based upon. It’s me. I can’t see what songs ‘Perb wrote.”

Despite Ghostface’s comments, Superb was a featured guest on Supreme Clientele on the cuts “We Made It” and “Ghost Deini.”

At this time, no cause of death has been confirmed. He was 41.
