Comprehensive Beatdown is back with a special episode. This week, Bloggy Bonilla and Silent G take a look back to 1995 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Old Dirty Bastard’s “Return to the 36 Chambers: The Dirty Version,” which was released on March 28, 2015. “Return to the 36 Cambers” was the second Wu Tang solo release, and is in some ways lost in the mix, considering it fell between Method Man’s “Tical” and Raekwon’s “Only Built For Cuban Linx,” two albums most Wu Tang fans consider classics. The guys listen to and discuss the album, share some old stories, talk in some depth about associated Wu Tang acts, and try to decide where in the pantheon of not just Wu Tang, but pop music in general, “Return to the 36 Chambers” belongs.

In 1997, Rhyme & Reason was released and still serves as the best documentary on rap music. It featured appearances from a who’s who of rap industry veterans. The soundtrack featured an eclectic selection of artists giving insight into all the different sounds of the music. At the time and maybe still there was no one who stood out as much as the Wu-Tang Clan did. RZA represented the Wu on the soundtrack with “Tragedy”, it had all the Wu-Tang musts for a song. Soul, Kung-Fu, dope bassline, and pyramids were present on the track and in the video. Peace to the Gods and Earths. Wu-Tang is for the children.
