Dirty’s welfare card.
The picture disc is a recreation of the “Public Assistance ID Card” seen on the cover art of Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s classic debut album Return To The 36 Chambers.
The record showcases the first two singles – ‘Brooklyn Zoo’ and ‘Shimmy Shimmy Ya’ – from the 1995 album, which was primarily produced by RZA and features guest spots from members of the Wu. With his drunken flow, ODB was the second member of the Clan to release a solo effort, following Method Man’s Tical a year earlier.
This picture disc was originally released as Record Store Day 2016 edition. Now Get On Down have announced a regular release for those who missed it first time round. Priced at $25 and shipping in July, you can pre-order here.
