The coolest accessory to own on Planet Hip Hop ever to date is Return to the 36 Chambers from ODB. Now Wu Tang Clan fans can show off a fancy box set of ODB. Itâ€™s your own slice of history that is eloquent and deserves credit like a classic collector nerd type would have in their trunk of musical treasures.
â€œShimmy Shimmy Yaâ€ changed 1996 and so did Olâ€™ Dirty Bastard, one track at a time in this era. My favorite joint is â€œBrooklyn Zoo,â€ a song I canâ€™t keep off repeat, even in 2012. â€œDamageâ€ has a classic Wu song formula laced with Gza and a Rza beat, making you want more as usual. â€œCuttinâ€™ Headz,â€ a track toward the end of the album, is a perfect storm of everything you like from the usual clan suspects.
Like a good myth that never dies, you get everything a rockerâ€™s rarity could offer and more. Complete with a dirty version sticker plus a 12-track bonus disc featuring various remixes, a cappellas, and instrumentals. Between discs one and two this whole package is a DJâ€™s best friend every night of the week, but the end of â€œBaby Câ€™monâ€ will always be pure genius.
Now that downloads are killing the rap industry, you as a consumer should expect more for your buck, and this is defiantly worth it. For fans like me, who grew up getting the â€œWâ€ tattooed on them long before it was a daily occurrence, it is even more so.
