If you’re really a Wu-Tang fan, you’ve scoured the Internet for footage of Ol Dirty Bastard. You’ve seen him barefoot on the sidewalk, or onstage talking about cocaine in his shoe. But you’ve never seen this interview before.
Genius (formerly Rap Genius) is teaming up with MTV to release never before seen interviews from ’97-98 with artists like Method Man, Redman, Cam’ron, and others. The first release is a ’97 interview with ODB, and in it he talks about his struggle to get sober, why using condoms is a good idea, and what his relationship with Mariah Carey was like.
Watch the unreleased interview above, and remember the influence ODB’s spirit had on hip-hop.
