Album: Return to the 36 Chambers: The Dirty Version
It's just one fuckin' verse! Ol' Dirty Bastard's rockin' "Shimmy Shimmy Ya" is only one loony verse repeated twice, with a slice of it played backwards in case you can't get enough of it. "For any MC in any 52 states/I get Psycho Killaaaa Norman Bates!" he says, and even with such insane claims, in actuality, this is ODB kinda subdued and toned down. It's a testament to his greatness that with less he gives more. The staticky voice of Richard Pryor ("What the fuck, you can't even sing”) feels right at home, and the World's Famous Supreme Team radio-show sample ("I like the way you talk") is a nice touch to go with the schizo piano keys.
