If you’re in the market for a new and fashionable device for storing your C.R.E.A.M., look no further than the late and great Wu-Tang Clan member Ol’ Dirty Bastard. Coming this November, Get On Down will release a special box set of ODB’s solo debut. The whole package, which is titled Return To The 36 Chambers: The Dirty Version Wallet Box, comes complete with a remastered CD, a bonus disc with rare cuts and remixes, some generic goods like a “vintage” poster and some stickers, and of course a wallet with “complimentary laminated Ol’ Dirty Bastard food stamp card.” Don’t think too hard about the food stamp card.
ODB, who was born Russell Tyrone Jones, died in 2004 of an overdose, but the sweet melodies of hits like “Drunk Game (Sweet Sugar Pie)” will live on thanks to enthusiastic re-releases of his material. In most cases, a capella and stickers are nothing to get excited about, but when they’re ODB-themed suddenly both of them are awesome. Same goes for food stamp cards?
