The 100 Best Wu-Tang Clan Songs

60. Mariah Carey f/ ODB "Fantasy (Bad Boy Remix)" (1995)

Producer: Sean "Puffy" Combs
Album: "Fantasy" 12"/CD Single
Label: Columbia

From taking a limo to cash a welfare check to bumrushing the Grammys stage, Ol' Dirty Bastard's public life was unpredictable. Count his cameo on Mariah Carey's Diddy-tinkered "Fantasy" redux as one more who-would've-thunk-it moment.

Appearing under the sanitized moniker of ODB (Columbia execs must have been pissing their pants to learn their top money-earner was doing a duet with somebody named Ol' Dirty Bastard), the man born Russell Jones announces (tongue firmly in cheek) his presence by saying, "Keepin' it real, son."

For those questioning his appearance on an R&B princess' record, Dirt didn't give a fuck. Besides, he tore that shit up, rocking on the beat heavily based on the irresistible "Genius of Love" by Tom Tom Club (an offshoot of Talking Heads). In true Dirty style, he tones down his words, but still brings the realness to this popular "Fantasy."
