There was a brief period where Loud records wasted a bunch of cash putting out Enhanced CD’s back in 1996, when the internets was still really shitty and Quicktime and Flash had recently come out. Xzibit‘s first album, Mobb Deep‘s Hell On Earth and the Wu-Tang Forever double album all got “special treatment”, but the first two just consisted of basic things you could click your mouse on and here snippets of shit or 30 second clips of their videos, which is pretty gay by today’s standards, and wasn’t exactly mind-blowing ten years ago either. X’s was the worst, while at least the Mobb CD had stupid stuff liuke the project phone where you could get verbaly abused by the Hav and Prodigy, as well as finding a hidden track if you went to some website and got the code.1 The track in question actually turned out to be a highly amusing attack on Keith Murray, covering when Murray snuffed P “in front of police”.

The Wu CD was much more interesting, as it actually had a little game where you had to explore the various chambers of the Wu-Tang HQ and meet all the crew in order to unlock the RZA‘s desk and a bunch of clips. I actually cut and pasted them all together into one clip and uploaded it to YouTube for some bizarre reason.2 Check out how fucked-up Ol’ Dirty is in his section – proving once and for all that he was the greatest rock star of our time.
- 1. As it turns out, when you open the folder on your desktop you can just look through the “source” folder to find all the clips and songs anyway![back]
- 2. The truth us I find it difficult to tear myself away from that place as it is, so I thought I might give back after having taken/downloaded so, so much.[back]
