Nigga Please is the second and final studio album by American hip hop artist and member of the Wu-Tang Clan Ol’ Dirty Bastard, released on September 14, 1999. This was the last official solo album released during ODB’s lifetime. The album debuted at #10 on the Billboard 200 with 93,000 copies sold in the first week.[6] Three months later the album was certified gold by the RIAA.[7]

Album information

During the period between the release of his first album, Return to the 36 Chambers: The Dirty Version, and this one, Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s erratic behavior (including crashing the Grammy Awards of 1998 and multiple legal altercations) had earned him a reputation as a wild and eccentric member of the Wu-Tang Clan.

Before its release Ol’ Dirty Bastard announced multiple title possibilities for the album including, “God Made Dirt and Dirt Don’t Hurt Baby Jesus” and Black Man Is God, White Man Is the Devil, the later was changed due to commercial concerns regarding its controversial nature.[8]

His vocal style was garbled and often arrhythmic and his lyrics tended to be free form, at times focusing obscurely on themes associated with the Five Percent Nation; in spite, or perhaps because of this, Nigga Please was a critical and commercial success.
