Ol Dirty Bastard-Method Man

Hip-Hop Rumors: Did Ol’ Dirty Bastard Steal Rhymes For His Albums?

Method Man is letting all of Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s secrets out of the 36 Chambers. In a recent interview with Complex magazine, Meth claims ODB stole a majority of the lyrics on his debut album, Return to the 36 Chambers: The Dirty Version, from RZA and GZA.

“Dirty took all their sh*t and made it his own, and GZA ain’t say sh*t. Most of [Dirty’s verses] was GZA’s sh*t. I remember GZA and ODB got in an argument one night, and GZA was like, ‘Nigga most of that sh*t on your f*cking album is mines anyway!’”

Meth did give ODB credit for writing “Brooklyn Zoo,” but not without throwing Big Baby Jesus under the bus one more time:

“I could go through the discography, I could tell you which ones he wrote. Like “Dog Sh*t” on Wu-Tang Forever? ‘Calling me a dog/But leave a dog alone/Because nothing can stop me/from burying my bones’ – I wrote that when I was 15 years old.”

I’m not sure why Method Man would attempt to tarnish what’s left of Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s legacy, but it’s foul nonetheless.

Until next time…Xaviera

    WHERE IS ODB HAND IN THAT PICTURE?

  • Meth on some $hyt!
    So what if ODB “borrowed” some lyrics. It ain’t like Meth is a top flight battle rapper.
    Brooklyn Zoo? I was like ” Hell Nah! No body wrote that $hyt, not even ODB, 1/2 of the lyrics were 1/2 grunts & groans anyway & didn’t make much sense….but was still Fuyah!

    Fail Blog for Meth for this 1!
    Let the ODB rest in Peace!

    @facebook-1614618830:disqus : Good question , that shyt look mad suspect….especially in light of the way Meth acting!

  • METH IT REALLY DOESNT MATTER!!

    NONE OF YALL COULDA SPIT THOSE RHYMES THE WAY DIRT DOG SPIT IT.

    I REMEMBER ONE SONG ON HIS DEBUT WHERE HIM AND GZA WAS GOING BACK AND FORTH. IT WAS OBVIOUS GZA WROTE THE WHOLE THING BUT ODB’S STYLE CARRIED THAT SONG.

    smh at the AHH.COM niggah that tried to argue me down that ODB was a lyricist…

    i respected the niggah cuz of his CHARACTER and the IM’MA LET MY NUTS HANG attitude he carried
    when that niggah picked up that welfare check fresh out the limo in front the world to see – was CLASSIC

    i can dig a niggah keeping it 100 but at whose expense?
    METH know he should have kept that STORY in-house –
    some shit better left … ALONE!

  • ODB look like he beatin Johny Blaze off in that pic, Meth Expression is too muc……… Pause

    Anyway, this story aint no shocker, ODB was never a respected lyricist to begin with, he was the Flava Flav of Wu Tang, more like a Mascot then anything, If this story were about Meth himself it would be a diffrent story                       
     

  • oh wow…I didnt think that in this new era of desperation would make these so called hip hop websites reach this damn far!! You could read all this shit in the wu tang manual that came out YEEEEEARS ago AHH!! get real!! ODB was that nigga reguardless what yall tryin to prove!! its a known fact that ODBs 1st album was recycled rhymes from his unique ason days etc…they already put that out there and you can hear it for yourself LOL! And its STILL a CLASSIC!! fail on yall part man!! And why yall pick apart that complex article and whip up your own juicy headline?  Thats fuckin tacky! it was supposed to be some behind the scenes type info…damn you cant even do that shit no more either? hip hop fuckin sucks yo I swear smdh

    I’m a huge wu-tang fan, not too sure how to take this revelation. Obviously is doesn’t matter at all, we loved dirt dog for who he was. I mean, why now, meth? I saw meth with deck and masta killa in Hartford not too long after dirt passed and it was all love and hustling shitty t-shirts with meth n odb on ’em… It is only an excerpt from the article, so I hope this shit is taken out of  context. These websites are making it seem like meth is blowing up the spot just to do it, malicious intent n shit. I gotta give hot nickels the benefit of the doubt on this one, i’m sure it wasn’t any disrespect.
