RZA As Bobby Digital (Explicit)
Released: Nov 1998
A futuristic concept record that follows the adventures of Bobby Digital, the solo debut from RZA is covered in space dust and stylistically scattered. With its swaying strings and robotic female chorus, "My Loving Is Digi" is high hip-hop camp, while the sad "Domestic Violence" is an unbearably realistic portrayal of a failed, abusive relationship. By the time ODB pops in on "Kiss of the Black Widow" to deliver an incoherent, profanity-laced diatribe against inter-racial dating, the listener is exhausted. Still, this is frequently brilliant.
