ODB on “Love Me Do”

In this interview from the documentary Dirty Minded, Ole’ Dirty Bastard lays down a breathtaking version of “Love Me Do” by The Beatles. I have a few questions. First: do we know why he is singing this song? Not really. Does it really matter? Absolutely not. Second: why has he decided to stray away from singing his own lyrics? “Love, love me do/You know I love you” is NOT “I don’t have no trouble with you fucking me/But I  have a little problem with you not fucking me.” I want my friend back. It’s the freshest (okay, not freshest, most unique?) cover of a Beatles song I’ve heard in a while, so props to ODB.
