How did ODB get to start hanging with the Wu-Tang Clan, anyway? The man goes so much his own way that not only does Nigga Please sound like no other solo project from a Clan member, it doesn't really resemble any record except itself. Funny, funky, and answering to absolutely no one, this is Big Baby Jesus' masterpiece. --Rickey Wright

"I like ODB a lot, but this CD is really hard to listen to. Basically, I think the guy might be loosing it. I'm embarrassed to admit it, but its sort of weirdly fascinating to listen to him scream like a loon on some of his tracks like 'Big Baby Jesus'. That being said, I can really only take about two or three songs in a row, before I have to switch to something else.Still, his sound is certainly unique, the 'Hey Dirt-ey, Baby I got your Money' song is worth the price of the album, and I do actually listen to little snips of this more about once a week or so.If you don't like weird, sort of crazy, foul mouthed shrieking, you won't like this. If you find that sort of thing kind of funny, or interesting, or both, then, like me, you might enjoy this album."

"I must start by confessing that I am a true follower of this hip-hop cultural phenom known as the Wu-Tang...So bear with me, Old Dirty has proven with this project that he clearly and truly does not care what anybody thinks about him or his music--and yet he manages to shine on this work. I truly can not capture with words the amount of energy that Ason has brought to this album. With the track "You Don't Want a F#*k With Me" he sets the record straight about where his head is and where allegiances lie. This is not an album for the kiddies to hear until they are grown--with very misogynistic themes, it will be a tough sell for the ladies, but the true Dirty fans will not be mad...The remake of rick james "Cold Blooded" is inspiring--except for Dirty's singing--accompanying him on this track are the neptunes. The new sensation that has aided in boosting norega...(They contribute a lion's share of titles totaling 4 out of 13 tracks)What else can I say? Big Baby Jesus has saved me from the hum drum and monotonous hard-core materialism that has been force fed by the industry over the past few months. Stayed tuned to your local hip-hop radio station to give "Got Your Money" airplay...If humor is what you are looking for, then this is also your cup of tea, antics literally abound in this work.....Especially the ballad he has that is reminiscent of some billie holliday gib from years past(with horrible singing on Dirty's part)Now you know as a critique I have to hit you with some rather disappointing news: No collaborative efforts from anyone else in the Wu-Tang except in the way of production credits by Rza(of course) and dat n^@@a reb(Rebel INS--stayed tuned for his release)But in tru Wu form and fashion, track 6 on the cd introduces us to 12 O'clock and Shorty S*$t Stain Pa...with a cameo by La the Darkman Overall...Dirty came with what I expected: beat heavy, foolhardy antics with no father to the style....I can't even imagine to know what goes on in that drug-induced haze of his.....but i like itword(definitely aint one for the squeamish) but you ain't hear that from me gannsberg"

"First off, I need to comment on that first line under Amazon's best of 1999 header, 'how did ODB start hanging out with the wutang anyway?' ODB is the cousin of both the RZA and GZA, furthermore, the three were involved in a battle based crew in NY called All in Together Now in like 84, so he never 'started' hanging out with wutang, he is wutang. Anyhow, on this album, Dirty reshapes what is traditionally acceptable as a hip hop verse, laughing and belching over his lines, leaving half-bars of empty space here and there, breaking out into singing and screaming, smashing a 16-bar verse convention, launching into a hook whenever he's ready. Dirty's willingness to follow his feeling over any pre-established conceptual foundation results in the introduction of a 'freejazz' type attitude in hiphop, stretching the possibilities of the genre. One of the most inventive albums recorded."
