On this date in 1995, Russell Jones aka Ol’ Dirty Bastard dropped the premier single from his debut album Return To The 36 Chambers: The Dirty Version on Elektra Records. Produced by in-house Wu producer True Master, this track was Dirty’s second highest charting single, only to be topped by “Got Your Money” from his N***a Please album.

With the name of the song originating from his crew, who were aptly called Brooklyn Zu, there was a well known Brooklyn gang, who at the time, used the name which prompted ODB getting shot in the Brevoort Housing Projects in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn.

As one of the Boro’s most memorable anthems, Brooklyn will forever remember ODB as a “native son” that defintely repped BK to the fullest.
