    All In Together Now


    Ol' Dirty Bastard

    DJ Muggs


    (Ol' Dirty Bastard, *RZA*)

    Yo, check this out, my name is the Ol' Dirty Bastard
    You know what I'm sayin', when I rhyme, when I, when I get down for my crown
    I come out crazy like a, like a tiger, or something, know what I'm sayin'
    No, no, nobody can even F' with me, straight up and down
    You know what I'm sayin', so that's how we coming in, know what I'm sayin'
    *From the heart of Medina, to the head, to the east
    To the plaza houses, a.k.a. the Mountain
    To the rugged lands of Shaolin, yo
    We rock all, all, all in together now
    Got played, got fresh, up...*


    The world was bugging off this Wu-Tang nigga on the rock
    That was just another spot on the muthafuckin' block
    You forgot Cash Rule nigga? toss seven figures
    He pull a trigger to make that account, get bigger
    Had babies to feed, kept a bitch with need
    Thousands shows booked, promoters on speed
    His hands was in everything, including some pussy
    From the Brazilian wax, to the uncombed bushy
    From down state, psychiatric
    Who tried to put a code on his brain until he cracked it
    Now the media wanna view him like they knew him
    And his head nurse, wanna sue him cause she blew him
    Ever since he walked on stage, he was just a loose cannon
    Wild drunk staggin', a nigga who kept standing
    Class clown, who erase chalk from the board
    The only choir member, that sing off chord, we were

    [Chorus x2]

    (GZA, *RZA*)

    *All, all, all in together now*
    Kept the balance, stay dressed for the weather now
    Battle M.C.'s, anywhere, whatever town
    And remain victorious, in any ground


    The All In Together Now, started in Bed-Stuy
    Human beat box specialist, who dressed fly
    A half ounce of blow and a forty ounce drinker
    Magnificent flow, critical thinker
    Unique is one grain of sand from the beach
    And had bitches eating out of his hand
    He was intelligent, his style was relevant
    I can name ten niggaz that stole an element
    From the high speed chase to the court arraignments
    All of the above, was entertainment
    He caused earthquakes, just from experiments
    Some thoughts got lost, not knowing where it went
    His songs had a rep for many inducements
    Giving birth to new styles, after recruitments
    There's no replacement or any supplement
    He was a new testament, what he said, what he meant, we were

    [Chorus 2X]


    The judge took a look at he, and threw the book at thee
    The sentencing, would of made the average crook happy
    They put him in a box, wrapped like a gift
    In them straight jacket, watched by two, worked the shift
    Gave him no phone calls, saw no sunlight
    Like, Billie the Kid, in his last gun fight
    Then days became weeks, weeks became months
    Carved the calendar on the wall, with his front
    The food pushed in, on the trays, looking sharp, in the cell
    My hands covered with latex gloves
    Cooks in the kitchen had laced his drinks
    The wild ass physician, they was off the breaks
    He got visits from shrinks who came in with ink-blots
    Moving with they own plot, but the Dirt, he think not
    He had nothing but time on his hands
    As if he got him signed from the Clan, we were

    [Chorus x2]


    (RZA, *chess sample*, #Ol' Dirty Bastard#)

    All, all, all, in together now
    #All in together now!#
    #All in together now!#
    All, all, all, in together now
    #All in together now!#
    #All in together now!#
    #All in together now!#
    #All in together now!#
    #All in together now!#
    #All in together now!#
    *Now white doesn't really wanna use up
    His two remaining pawn moves, so he plays, king to E2*

    My favourite ODB tribute. Honest and awkward in places. (the remix lp is a good one too)

    GZA wrote this for ol' dirty, in the sense that he intended dirty to rap it. When he died he changed all the I's to he's.
