Just yesterday, my aunt and I were discussing Kanye’s behavior during award shows and I then proceeded her to school her in the infamous acts of Ol’ Dirty Bastard. This past Saturday marked the 6th anniversary of his passing but Raekwon opts to celebrate life first by releasing the video to “Ason Jones” today, which would have been his 42nd birthday.
O.D.B. a.k.a. Dirt McGirt a.k.a. Big Baby Jesus a.k.a. Russell Jones was a lot of different things and to a lot of different people and that’s what made his soul unique to the parallel universe. He entertained, shocked, loved and reminded us that life was too short but you can make a momentous impact in your short window. The Wu-Tang Clan hasn’t and never will be the same again but the legacy lives on through the various members’ music.
OB4CL2 lands yet another victory. Put your lighters up for J Dilla on the beat, as well.
