2500873, Anybody Who Doesn't Understand Dirty Was A Great MC Can Eat A Dick

A lotta y'all got it fucked up with all the craziness but there's a reason the Wu never recovered from his descent into addiction, imprisonment, & eventually death.

You think Russell Jones was just up there fuckin' around & doing dumb shit?

But yet he was the focal point onstage for the greatest collective of MCs in rap history?

And any album he actually put his name on & owned during his life happened to be on point?

C'mon baby baby c'mon baby baby C'MOOOON.

Dude was an essential ingredient & there truly was no father to his style.

Watch the way he carries this Wu show in '97 in Amsterdam (well, he and Meth, who is a true beast onstage even if his albums have not measured up to that).

I don't know where GZA, Deck, Ghost, or Rae were for this one.

But then again it was the Wu.........in Amsterdam.

Yet somehow the Dirt Dog rocked this club in coherence.

But that's the 3rd out of 5 from some Dutch live special they were doing on the Wu at the time (whut up, Nic!).

But really, the whole show is worth watching:
