In the inlay of my version it´s 1 (900)2-0-Dirty not 1 (900)2-0-2-Dirty! Does anyone has the same problem?

Very good album , Liquid Sword, Tical, Ironman, Pillage, Bobby Digital, all their solo debuts were classics or just very solid albums, its hard to say which one is best because they all have their own unique style but imo Liquid Swords.Return 36 Chambers is overall a complete album Dirty has some lyrics with his hard to deny delivery.it almost has a Gravediggaz feel to it

This is my favourite of all the Wu solo releases. RZA's beats are immense. His production lends a gritty, raw feeling to the record that gets better with repeated listening. Dirty's vocal delivery is also incredibly creative not to mention unique. His sing-rap style and bizarre lyrical content are so original and catchy it's hard not to love this record. Rawhide, Shimmy Shimmy Ya and Brooklyn Zoo are highlights but the standout tack is Snakes. Dirty has a short verse at the end of the track but it is absolutely superb.
This is an awesome record all round and for anyone curious about the Wu solo releases or any fan of hiphop, is an essential purchase.
The best release from a lost talent.
