Crazy rare 1991 interview (and freestyle) featuring GZA (then doing business as the Genius), Ol’ Dirty Bastard (then going by Ason Unique), and RZA (then known as Prince Rakeem) on local NYC public access program, Rhythm & Soul.
“as YOU can GO, beLOW zeRO” — he’s creating iambs out of words that don’t naturally fall into that pattern: i.e., he stresses ‘zero’ on the second syllable instead of the first, where the stress naturally falls.

In retrospect, this might be the best track of OB4CL2.
The rapper, who was released from prison after serving four years in May over a grand larceny charge, is back in the studio recording material for Game Tested & Street Approved, which is due in stores in 2011 via Duck Down.
“The people have been asking for true Hip-Hop music, and that’s what I’m giving them,” Black Rob stated. “I stayed away from features. I’ve been away for 4 joints, so I feel the people deserve to hear me. When I came home, I went right to work, and didn’t have time to reach out to cats. On my next project you will get that. As for producers, I have some up-and-coming cats on there. I believe in giving cats a chance. As far as named producers you may hear a joint or two from Buckwild, Self Service, Bishop, Scram Jones and Pete Rock.”
Bra nyheter. Nas borde göra likadant.

shit han går in över RNS mästerverk…
känns lite logiskt att Bad Boy gör bäst reklamer…
