Producer: RZA
Album: Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)
Label: Loud

Early Wu-Tang flexing their superpowers was something to behold. The bumpin' "Shame on a Nigga," like most of the Clan's cuts, followed no rules, fucking around with the catchy chorus (Rae jumps on it the first time it's spit, but then doesn't for the rest of the song; OBD, who pops up all over the track, cuts it short the second time around with an unexpected "blow!"). They even flipped football signals (hut!).

As good as Method Man ("I'm better than my competor/You mean competitor/Whatever, let's get together") and Raekwon ("So when you see me on the real, formin' like Voltron/Remember I got deep like a Navy Seal") are on this one, this is a sizzling showcase for Ol' Dirty Bastard. His drunken style is live and uncut, saying shit you never heard any other MC say before: "Got burnt once, but that was only gonorrhea/Dirty, I keep shit stains in my drawers so I can get so funky for you." The energetic performance had you open like fallopian tubes.
