Ol' Dirty Bastard

Rapper



About

Russell Tyrone Jones (November 15, 1968 – November 13, 2004 - (aged 35)), better known under his stage name Ol\' Dirty Bastard (or ODB), was an American rapper and producer. He was one of the founding members of the Wu-Tang Clan, a rap group primarily from Staten Island, New York which first rose to mainstream prominence with their 1993 debut album Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). <br> After establishing the Wu-Tang Clan, Ol\' Dirty Bastard went on to pursue a successful solo career and contributed as a rapper/producer for the Fugees. However, his professional success was hampered by frequent legal troubles, including incarceration. He died on November 13, 2004, of a drug overdose, two days before his 36th birthday. Before his death, Jones managed to record his third solo album, which remains unreleased. <br> Jones was often noted for his trademark microphone techniques and his \"outrageously profane, free-associative rhymes delivered in a distinctive half-rapped, half-sung style\". His stage name was derived from the 1980 martial arts film Ol\' Dirty and the Bastard (also called An Old Kung Fu Master, starring Yuen Siu-tien);<Br> Source: <A Href=\"Https://En.Wikipedia.Org/Wiki/Main_Page\" Target=\"_blank\" Rel=\"Me Nofollow\"> Https://En.Wikipedia.Org/Wiki/Main_Page</A>
