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
