rest in peace, big baby jesus. Was a good run from the Wu's craziest member (damn, they just did that live album too), and the article says his new album was almost done too...i never got over how cool "Return to the 36 chambers" was.

 

Now, he's in that great Brooklyn Zoo inna sky. We should all drop some of our favorite ODB lines...

 

First things first man you're fuckin with the worst

I'll be stickin pins in your head like a fuckin nurse

 

and DJ Ario X's favorite:

 

"...introuding: yo, fuck that n*ggga's name! my hip-hop, falls on your head like rain..."

The final word from CNN....

 

Coroner: O.D.B. died of drug mixture

Wednesday, December 15, 2004 Posted: 1:59 PM EST (1859 GMT)

 

(CNN) -- Rapper O.D.B., who died in a recording studio last month, died by accident from the combined effects of cocaine and a prescription pain killer, according to New York City's Medical Examiner's office.

 

The toxicology results were released Wednesday. Ellen Borakove, spokeswoman for the office, said test results show the 35-year-old rapper had cocaine and the non-narcotic drug tramadol in his system when he died November 13 in Manhattan.

 

O.D.B., whose legal name is Russell Jones and was known as "Ol' Dirty Bastard," helped found the seminal 1990s rap group Wu-Tang Clan.

 

Critics considered their debut album, "Enter the Wu-Tang (The 36 Chambers)," a major success. In 1995, Jones produced the gold-selling 1995 debut album, "Return to the 36 Chambers."

 

The singer had a history of trouble with the law, including a conviction in 1993 for second-degree assault. In 2001, he was imprisoned for drug possession and escaping from a drug rehab clinic. He was released in 2003.

 

Jones stunned onlookers in 1998, when he rushed onstage at the Grammy Awards and grabbed a microphone from singer Shawn Colvin as she gave an acceptance speech for an award. O.D.B. talked about his purchase of expensive clothes for the ceremony, and his loss to Puff Daddy, who received the best rap album Grammy.

man, the Wu still aint the same without him, i think i miss him more now than i did then. Anyway, this.

 

An official release date for Ol' Dirty Bastard's long-delayed album, A Son Unique, has been confirmed.

 

Originally due for release last year, A Son Unique is the last studio album from the late Wu-Tang Clan member.

 

ODB (born Russell Tyrone Jones) begun working on A Son Unique in 2004 but died from an accidental overdose while recording the album.

 

Set for release on November 7th via Damon Dash Music Group, A Son Unique features appearances from Macy Gray, Missy Elliott, RZA, Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, Method Man, N.O.R.E., Pharrell and The Clipse, among others.

 

The release will commemorate the anniversary of Ol' Dirty Bastard's death, which occurred on November 13th, 2004.

his drunken style is still sorely missed on wu live performances. part of me's wary of listening to the rest of 8 diagrams in his absence - its like, you really didnt know how much he contributed there till its not.
