Say What? A History Of Rappers We Can’t Understand
The Rapper: Ol’ Dirty Bastard
Why He Was So Hard to Understand: He had a gravelly voice and a propensity for yelling and loved to interject lots of nonsensical lyrics into his songs.
Why We Loved Him Anyway: Even though we didn’t always know what he was saying or why he was saying it in the way that he did, ODB was filled with a ton of energy. It was impossible to hear him on a track and not sit up and pay attention, even if whatever he was saying went in one ear and out the other.
