“Got Your Money” now soundtracks an LG commercial selling its latest item — the WashTower.
LG is using “Got Your Money,” one of Ol’ Dirty Bastard‘s most well-known songs, to promote its latest item.
In a new advertisement from the electronics company, ODB’s classic hit song “Got Your Money” soundtracks different clips of people using LG’s WashTower. But it’s not exactly the original version being played, instead being replaced with a family-friendly version called “Baby, I Got Your Laundry.”
Judging by the comments on the ad’s YouTube page, some people are mixed about it, while others have wondered why LG didn’t go with Outkast’s “So Fresh, So Clean” instead. In related news, ODB made an appearance on Busta Rhymes’ recently-released Extinction Level Event 2: The Wrath of God album. The late Wu-Tang Clan rapper appears on the track “Slow Flow.”
Earlier this year, Amazon Music released a mini-documentary on ODB titled Unique: Return to the 36 Chambers 25 Years Later.
The documentary features never-before-seen freestyles and footage. Additionally, friends like RZA and Raekwon take part in extensive interviews. ODB’s widow, Icelene Jones, as well as his son Barsun Unique Jones, also appear. In the documentary, RZA recounted how another classic of ODB’s — “Shimmy Shimmy Ya” — came to fruition.
“[Shimmy Shimmy Ya] was recorded before he had a deal,” RZA said. “It was basically done in my bedroom that in the daytime it was a studio, at nighttime I would roll this mat on the floor and me and my family would sleep on the floor…it’s ironic. It was the last poverty recording.”
