45. Ol' Dirty Bastard "Shimmy Shimmy Ya" (1995)
Album: Return to the 36 Chambers: The Dirty Version
RZA’s off-kilter piano production on “Shimmy Shimmy Ya” was a perfect counterpoint to ODB's unhinged drunken master flow. It epitomized the Ol' Dirty Bastard persona in musical terms, a drunken saloon pianist plunking a two-note melody (via Stevie Wonder’s “Knocks Me Off My Feet,” appropriately enough) over an ungainly, limping breakbeat (The Emotions’ “I Like It”) that seemed on the verge of collapsing at any moment.
