The origin of the word "Cream" used by the Wu-Tang started from a variety of inspirations.
From watching cartoons with characters making big sandwiches (the word food is also another colloquialism used for money) being lathered in mustard and mayo, which they referred to as cream. The characters would fight over the food with the "cream" on it making it an understanding that it was valuable as money.
After the term became more mainstream among them, Method man's friend Rave came up with "Cash Rules Everything Around Me" as the acronym. This was the time when graffiti was prevalent and the names of crews or artists were not only their names but also had a meaning.
