Young Dirty Bastard says that his father, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, has a vast amount of unreleased music.
“It’s a lot,” Young Dirty Bastard says during an interview with ForbezDVDPromo. “I could go to RZA. Actually, peace to RZA. I’m getting tired of you actually putting music out without helping us, giving money back to me ‘cause you always put music out with other people’s soundtrack, movies and all that and not throwing money this way. Give me a few grand for that. My momma want the money…tired of being on food stamps, my nigga. Real talk. Got babies still on food stamps.”
One potential revenue stream for the rapper also known as YBD could be the potential twentieth anniversary Wu-Tang Clan album, A Better Tomorrow. He says during the ForbezDVDPromo interview that he will be part of the project.
Young Dirty Bastard also says that RZA has helped him. “RZA is my master,” he says. “He taught me how to move in this industry. He taught me in a weird way. He taught me by not teaching me. I signed a contract with RZA. He didn’t do everything he wanted to do for me and I was just basically in a room full of savages. They were gruesome creatures.”
Young Dirty Bastard also says that his late father did not sign at least one of the checks he received when he signed to Roc-A-Fella Records in 2003.
“My father, he was in jail at the time,” he says. “Gramma Cherry, she ended up signing his name on the check. Thank you, Dame Dash. It’s called forgery. But we’re not trying to let my grandma Cherry go to jail for that. I love her and all that.”
Ol’ Dirty Bastard died of a drug overdose in 2004.
