“When Biggie was doing a show somewhere in Brooklyn, Biggie was on the mic,” Cappadonna told vladtv.com. “[Ol’ Dirty Bastard] took the mic from Biggie. Rest in peace, Biggie. Love you the most. Then Biggie started being his hype man. Biggie was so amped up, once Dirty started going in, Biggie forgot it was his show. He was on the side doing him…You know if that was anybody else, they would have got sandwiched, G.”
Cappadonna Comments On ODB’s 1998 Grammy Speech
Another memory that Capp shared featured Ol’ Dirty Bastard taking the microphone at the 1998 Grammy Awards.
“Dirty was like, ‘I’m wearing this suit. I’m gettin’ up on the stage regardless,'” Capp said. “He was still respectful, though. Right? And he was presentable. He had the suit on.”
At the event, ODB took the microphone and spoke to the Grammy audience.
“I went and bought me an outfit today that costed a lot of money, today ’cause I figured that Wu-Tang was gonna win,” Ol’ Dirty said. “I don’t know how y’all see it, but when it comes to the children, Wu-Tang is for the children. We teach the children. Puffy is good, but Wu-Tang is the best.”
During his vladtv.com interview, Cappadonna also addressed that speech.
“That’s a statement that’s gonna live forever,” Capp said. “And we still here.”
Wu-Tang Clan is celebrating the 20 year anniversary of its debut album, Enter The Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers, this month.
