Ol’ Dirty Bastard – Brooklyn Zoo

My throwback joint of the day comes from the late Ol Dirty Bastard with the underground classic, “Brooklyn Zoo”. The joint was also sampled on Alicia Keys’ “Girlfriend” and Ghostface used vocals from this track on “9 Milli Brothers” off his Fishscale album.
Back in ’95, Dirt Mcgirt emerged from the Wu-Tang Clan with a raw, unique yet gritty character transcending into grimey New York hip hop. His debut album, Return to the 36 Chambers was well received by critics and fans, and even went platinum. We need more standout artists like this today.
