Return to the 36 Chambers: The Dirty Version (1995)

EW's GRADE
A-

Details Lead Performance: Ol' Dirty Bastard; Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

This solo effort by a second member of the near-platinum Wu-Tang Clan (Method Man being the first) showcases the raw, inno-vative talent of their illest member. Coproduced by Ol' Dirty and his cousin, Wu-Tang's the RZA, the album features RZA's signature dissonant piano loops behind Dirty's delirious, reverberating delivery. If you're looking for suit-and-tie rap, look again.
