Ol' Dirty Bastard's Return to the 36 Chambers gets deluxe reissue with actual food stamp card

There’s an MTV segment from 1995 in which Wu-Tang Clan co-founder Ol’ Dirty Bastard discusses the food stamp card on the cover of his solo debut album, Return to the 36 Chambers: The Dirty Version. He says, “I’m just trying to be real with it, you know what I’m saying?” He then pulls up to a check-cashing store in a limo to pick up food stamps.

Still keeping it real? Definitely questionable. But whatever: Return to the 36 Chambers is slated to be reissued on vinyl and double-CD by Get on Down Records November 22. They’ve added a deluxe bill-fold wallet, laminated “food stamp” card, vintage “on tour” poster, promotional sticker, as well as extended artwork with liner notes, milestones and accolades. The second disc will feature 12-inch versions, remixes, instrumentals, and acapellas. Dolla dolla bill, y’all.
