Five years ago today Russell
, also known as The Ol' Dirty Bastard
, passed away in a recording studio in New York City while finishing what was to be his final album. [prev
] He is remembered by those close to him.
The surviving members of the Wu Tang Clan got together to record memorial tracks as a group
and in their live shows
; Wu-related groups Brooklyn Zu
and Black Knights
, and non-Wu Tang musicians, like Buckethead
and DJ Noize
Lately, Ason's long-time friend Dante Ross has been offering up some memories of the God, such as the time Dirty was pissed at LL Cool J
, and this week's 1 2 3
part series at the Brooklyn Zoo
Remeber when he interrupted the Grammys
? Or when he preformed at a Wu show after escaping from police custody
? Or when he rescued that little girl
? Or when he took MTV cameras, in a limo, to pick up his welfare check, while he had the #1 album in the country and was covered in gold chains (which Viacom is apparently keeping off the net)?
A biopic is in the works
according to his cousin
(who says lots of weird things, so we'll see.)
Rest In Power, Ason. Unique for sure.
