Ayo whattup yall… you already kno what the science is so I aint gon give yall all the formal reintroductions or none of that shit. Its me….Cocaine Biceps live in the flesh aka the Hands Of Zues aka Caviar Tusks the great…the whole blase bla n all that. Respect is due once again to one of our fallen soldiers namsayin. Nine years ago today…on the eve of the eve of his born day.. the one n only ODB aka Dirt McGirt aka Osirus aka Ason Unique…better known to yalls as Ol Dirty Bastard..returned to the essence from which he once came nahmean. While he was still on this earth son touched a lot of lives thru his music…thru his acts of kindness…n thru his heart b.
It aint no secret to that son had got into some trouble here n there namsayin… He had a few seeds wit a few different women that he aint always keep up his child support payments wit…n he was on the run from the law for a lot of his career later on but he was also a very misunderstood dude. When he rushed the stage durin the acceptance speech of one of em Lilith Fair type broads for song of the year at the Grammy awards in ’98 to deliver his famous “Wu Tang Is For The Children” speech what a lot of muthafuckas dont understand is that shit wasnt done for the shock value or tryin to be disrespectful of shit. Son had been thru a very real experience that had affected him deeply nahmean. The night before while he was in the studio he had heard a car crash outside… He went to go see what had happened wit his mans n noticed that a 4 year old girl was trapped underneath the car. He n his boy got some people to help em lift the car off the girl n pull her to safety. The girl was taken to the hospital cuz she had been pretty badly burned n needed medical attention n whatever. Ol Dirty went to visit her at the hospital under a alias name n checked on her a few times after that but had to stop after the media found out bout it nahmean. So when he gave that speech the shit wasnt pose to be a joke…it was comin from his heart.
Now when you look at that phrase “Wu Tang is for the children” today…the shit still holds meaning son. Wu Tang not sellin records like they use to but you cant take away from the power…the legacy. The 20 year anniversary of 36 Chambers jus took place…n the day held a lot of meaning to muthafuckas b. The shit held meaning to muthafuckas who was still zygotes when that album dropped too yo. You think in 20 years niggas is gon be celebrating the anniversary of Tyga’s Hotel California album? Fuck naw son… Thats like celebratin the anniversary of the first Milli Vanilli album b. What did Tyga ever teach the kids other than its cool to be some corny ass half extra terrestrial half transgender prostitute from Cambodia lookin ass muthafucka fakin ya way thru life n makin summa the worst music known to man? The Wu taught kids how to survive. The Wu helped father young dudes who aint had the right male role models in they life n influenced em to carry theyselves in a godly fashion namsayin. So 15 years after ODB made that statement…it STILL rings true like a muthafucka. Thats a legacy b.
When the Wu formed like Voltron the only thing that was ever really really made clear was that the GZA got to be the head. But if the other 8 members got to be arms n legs n whatever…Ol Dirty was definitely the heart. That shit remains true to this day b. Word is bond.
