When Ol’ Dirty Bastard Visited Chinatown Fair Arcade [Video]
With the passing of Chinatown Fair Arcade from the shores of Manhattan, it’s only fitting that we revisit a seminal hip-hop classic from 1995. “Brooklyn Zoo” was released on February 3 of that year, and was the debut single by Wu-Tang alumnus Ol’ Dirty Bastard. It is the late artist’s second highest charting single to date, behind “Get Your Money.”

Why bring all this up? Well, we were recently reminded of the original “Chinatown” version of the music video, which features the 8 Mott arcade fairly prominently throughout. A bit NSFW, but enjoy!
