Are you guys listening to these Schnipper podcasts? You know it's not just a song and Matthew Schnipper actually says a bunch of funny and candid stuff on there, right? And then you get the song. Sometimes it's from the record he's written about, sometimes not. This time it is.
Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Nigga Please 2LP
When I first heard this record we would drive around and listen to it. On the second song, when ODB shouts out schoolteachers and submarines, I would improvise my own endless shout-outs. Shout-outs to the signposts, shout-outs to the crossing guards, shout-outs to the intersection of Florida Ave., 18th Street and U Street. Apparently it was really annoying says my friend Daniel, but I don’t remember because I don’t like to remember things I don’t like.
