    Yahoo has the story right here.

    I wasn't into his style of rap, but I thought he gave some pretty funny interviews. It's tragic how he died also...My dad had died the same way.

    Sincerely,

    John Kilduff...

    Well, that's diversity for you...Howard Keel and Ol' Dirty Bastard within a week of each other.[​IMG]

    EDIT: Forgot the word "funny".

    He was too young to die, almost 2 years older than me actually. But you know what they say about those flames that burn twice as bright...

    He died like a true MC: in the recording studio. Old Dirty Bastard was like a breath of fresh air to hip hop back when he debuted with Wu-Tang, as were the rest of the members. The media mostly concentrates on his legal battles and his dealings with the law, but any one that knows hip hop knows that Old Dirty was a great lyricist and he had style('for miles and miles and miles...'). As significant a person to hip hop as Jam Master Jay, and I believe he died in a recording studio too(although unfortunately he was killed).

    Shimmy shimmy ya.

    Horrible news. I was so looking forward to some new material.

    Ol' Dirty Bastard's Return to the 36 Chambers is a classic hip-hop album IMO. His rhythmic delivery was just as original as his lyrics. There is a lot of great solo material by various members also but ODB's first album was the best of the lot with Raekwon's Cuban Links, and Gza's Liquid Swords close seconds. Wu-Tang Clan are/were one of the best bands ever, in any genre.


    Ninety-five ni***z is wasted
    Keystone capered, and Wu kept the rap fiends basted
    Foamin out the mouthpiece, heads blown like geese
    Murderous police, I do shows and perform in Grease
    It's not magic, gaming is the gadget
    World classic big national high attracts dear graphics
    Lampin in my own zone, my physical show
    Inhale bones Tony stuck, for the diamond in Rome
    He's convincin, labelled one man rap convention
    The n**a that'll gun down, eighty frenchmen
    Lead vocalist, music specialist, rap arsonist
    I deal with sharpness plus spark the hardest individual
    I plant crimes inside vocals
    My rap's like my passport, my life's my proof
    Hit the sun roof, be out like a wanderin dream
    Shuttle, and get startled off the verbal hygiene, my n**a

    He died in the studio, you know hes got some tracks done. I'm sure Rockafella will release them posthumous. And if they dont have enough material they will release it with lots of guest appearances. Shit, Pac's got annother new posthumous one on the way called "Loyal To The Game" which Eminem is co-producing. I hope he got Dre to do some beats on that. All Eyes on Me was incredible. (sorry for hi-jacking the thread)
    Back to ODB though, I always thought they should do a reality show about him would be incredibly hilarious. Remember on MTV News when ODB picked up his food stamps and welfare after being dropped off by a Limo? How hilarious was that.

    I wouldn't worry too much unless you're heavy on the (illegal) substances.

    Yeah, I don't think ODB's demise should be construed as a general threat to all guys in their thirties...

    Unless you like to eat peanut butter and crack sandwiches, I wouldn't worry about dying at 35 like O.D.B.

    If anyone remembers the state of hip hop back in late '92, Wu reinvigorated NY hip hop. I was fortunate enough to land one of the Wu singles they released on their own, "M.E.T.H.O.D Man/Protect Ya Neck at a tiny indy record shop in New Haven before they hit it big. It blew me away. ODB was truly an original. He wasn't much of a lyricist but he brought a unique energy to that group and to hip hop in general.

    Oh Jeez....

    This is sad news to me. If you read the bio of ODB on www.allmusic.com, it's really stirring, hilarious, tragic, moving stuff. It would make a great movie - I'm just saddened that his story now ends in such a tragic manner. RIP guy...
