Nigga Please

Nigga Please is a hardcore rap album by American hip hop artist and member of the Wu-Tang Clan Ol' Dirty Bastard, released on September 14, 1999 (see 1999 in music). As eclectic as might be expected from Ol' Dirty Bastard, whose erratic behavior (including crashing the Grammy Awards of 1998 and multiple legal altercations) has earned him a reputation as the wild man of the Wu-Tang Clan. His vocal style is garbled and often arhythmic and his lyrics tend to be free-form; in spite of its inacessibility, Nigga Please was a critical and commercial success, and remains one of the most popular solo albums in the Wu-Tang Clan's discography (perhaps second only to Method Man's Tical or Raekwon's Only Built 4 Cuban Linx).

Nigga Please peaked at #2 and #10 on Billboard's Top R&B/Hip Hop Albums chart and the Billboard 200, respectively.
