For “Ohnomite”, Oh No (born Michael Jackson; younger brother of Madlib and son of singer Otis Jackson) was granted unprecedented access to the Rudy Ray Moore / Dolemite audio archives and given free rein to slice, dice, chop and sample his way through the classic-yetabsolutely- filthy catalog. He was able to use legendary material from The Human Tornado, Petey Wheatstraw, the Dolemite Soundtrack and more, plus a multitude of previously unreleased and alternate acapellas and instrumentals.
As part of the “Ohnomite” experience Oh No and the crew at Five Day Weekend have dreamed up something out of the ordinary. A special 5″ vinyl offering of “3 Dollars” from the above mentioned full length. The A Side contains the full version of “3 Dollars” featuring MF Doom. On the B Side you’ll find the instrumental version of “3 Dollars”. This one is guaranteed to be as collectable as it is unique.
The 5-inch single is available with two covers, the first with Oh No and Doom on either side of the record. The second cover will have the images superimposed. The illustration is by Charles Munka, design by Jeff Jank.
