VIDEO: GZA, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, RZA on Rhythm & Soul (1991)

“Been doing it for a long time, tearing up parties, waxing MCs, just anything you can name as far as emceeing.”—The Genius (in 1991)

The Genius promotes his debut Words From the Genius on a public access show called “Rhythm & Soul” with ODB, RZA (aka All In Together) and some cat who probably had warrants and didn’t want to show his face—in tow. What, you didn’t know that Liquid Swords was GZA’s sophomore album? Then you should read my book—The Wu-Tang Clan and RZA: A Trip Through Hip Hop’s 36 Chambers. I know, I know, I didn’t set that price, I swear. GZA/Genius’ “Come Do Me” video below (Red Alert is the bartender), directed by Ralph McDaniels and Lionel “THe Vid Kid” Hampton.

VIDEO: Ol’ Dirty Bastard & RZA x 1991 Talent Show

Talent show footage (Ol’ Dirty Bastard on the beatbox, the RZA on the rhymes) from two thirds of the All In Together Now crew circa 1991. The RZA’s rhymes are the same lyrics the late Dirt McGirt  kicks on “Don’t U Know” from his debut, Return to the 36 Chambers: The Dirty Version.
