O.D.B.Return To The Essence
Ahhh The Wu, the mighty, mighty Wu Tang Clan, I could write for hours on them, but this post is dedicated to the great and much missed Ol Dirty Bastard, it was a compilation I did up as soon as I heard of his passing in 2004, it is a compilation that showcases the amusing,paranoid,delusional, inventive, clever and downright insane and infectious style we all became accustomed to.
I remember the first time I heard O.D.B., it was, of course on Wu's classic Protect Ya Neck and I thought he was defintely the most bugged of the clan (First things first man you're fuckin with the worst) and loved his work on Enter The 36 Chambers and his timeless and very dope Return To The 36 Chambers album, Ol Dirty's style really was unique and he was what being an underground MC was all about, he could adapt to all types of beats and could flip any style and he had fans and mad love from all coasts and all around the World,I would say that my favourite joint from the late, great Unique Ason was Harlem World his flow was manic and incredible.
It's sad how Russell went out, but we all knew that he loved getting high and had his fair share of issues and problems and fathered something like 14 kids, so it was only a matter of time before something happened sadly, I miss Ol Dirty and wonder how different 8 Diagrams might have been if he was still around, the Wu haven't really been the same since ODB was taken from us and he was a vital part of the clan in my eyes.
Rest In Eternal Peace Ol Dirty Bastard
