Looks like ODB, aka Ol' Dirty Bastard, aka Big Baby Jesus, aka Russell Jones, died of a heart attack at age 35 on Saturday in New York City.
Goodbye Wu-Tang! I'll miss your crazy antics onstage... :(

That's really tragic. To me he was alway's like some crazy real life superhero,( like when he rescued that girl who was pinned under a car.) I remember something he filmed for MTV when he pulled up in his limousine to the foodstamp office, went in, and, upon recieving the food stamps turned to the camera and said
"That's right! 40 acres and a mule jack!"
I've always been a big fan of WuTang because, like most great hip hop acts, they didn't really care what was going on musically around them, they just did they're own thing. This is especially true of ODB. I bet there's some 40's bein' poured on the ground tonight!
ah man, I heard about this earlier today. I was really looking forward to his future work, at least some of his next album was completed though.
I'd like to hear what the cause was, hopefully not drug induced.

hopefully not drug induced.
i said that when the superfreak left us, but deep down inside i knew all along....
to me it doesn't matter one bit....
36 yrs old is not enough time....

My friend Myles Karr is giving free Ol' Dirty Bastard tattoos to anyone who stops by his shoppe and asks him. He did this one on his own leg yesterday:

Ahh yes, very sexist, but goofy and catchy non-the-less

One of his managers said that the focus of ODB life was his children. But, various articles about his life could not agree on whether he had 3, 7, 11, or 19 children, with 1, 3, or 12 different women. Somehow, it seems to me that if a man's children are "the focus of his life", he ought to know how many he has, give or take a few.
The sad thing is, ODB was a "hero" to many young inner city males. Somehow, a gangsta lifestyle, abandoned children, and the worshop of drug use don't add up to much of a "role model".
Lots of folks like to mock Will Smith for having a "clean" lifestyle. But, what is wrong with an entertainer providing a positive role model for young fans?

screw a clean life style, a non-oppressive life style is all that matters.
