Previously Unreleased Ol’ Dirty Bastard Verses To Be Unearthed For New Wu-Tang Clan Album

Rescuing a Girl from a Car Accident

RZA has been hard at work crafting the new Wu-Tang Clan album, set to be called A Better Tomorrow and scheduled to drop this year to commemorate the collective’s 20th anniversary. So busy, in fact, that he’s dug through his vaults and unearthed a few unheard and unreleased verses from the late, great Ol’ Dirty Bastard, which Inspectah Deck told The Line Of Best Fit would be included on the upcoming collection.

“RZA has a bunch of Ol’ Dirty tracks and verses that for years nobody’s heard and, from my last conversation [with RZA], we’re supposed to have an Ol’ Dirty track on there,” Deck told the site. I”t may be by itself or we might join it on to another song. But Ol’ Dirty is going to be part of this album, that’s a fact.”

Dirty, who died in 2004 from a drug overdose, was last heard when RZA included an unreleased verse as a bonus track titled “16th Chamber (ODB Special)” on 2007’s 8 Diagrams, the last Wu album. A Better Tomorrow is slated for the end of the year.
