Set it off! The Inspectah Deck:

“I popped a bottle on your born day, God
Tried hard not to cry, I still can't hide the scar
And I still ask, why to God, analyzing your form
As I stood there beside your mom
And I share the blame, cuz you was calling for help, kid
Should've, could've, would've, at the time, I was selfish
I carry on your struggle, each day it really hurts me
I really miss you Russell, hope you forgive me Dirty.”

Props to Jason Hunter. He kept it realer than most on the long-awaited ODB tribute track. I appreciate him being the only one to acknowledge things weren’t always copasetic with Dirt McGirt and the squad that gave him his start. (And what’s up with that weird mix breakdown at the 4:30 mark.)

Sidebar: I forgot that ODB actually collapsed while making a song in the Wu studio. In this cold-blooded era where everything is accessible some engineer today might have sold a gossip site or the fuckin’ Access Hollywoods of the world those recordings. You sickos are sick. Let those who are no longer here, rest in peace. Hallelujah holla back, my sleeping lil homies!
