Rapper O.D.B. Dies at 35  Print E-mail

Infamous rap artist O.D.B. collapsed and died inside a Manhattan recording studio last Saturday at age 35. O.D.B., short for Ol’ Dirty Bastard, complained of chest pains before collapsing at the recording studio, and was dead upon arrival of paramedics, said Gabe Tesoriero, a spokesman for O.D.B.'s record label, Roc-a-Fella.

O.D.B., legally born Russell Jones, was a founding member of rap group the Wu-Tang Clan in the early 90s, and had many nicknames – including Ol' Dirty Bastard, Dirt McGirt, Big Baby Jesus, Dirt Dog, Osirus, Joe Bannanas and Unique Ason. His career and personal life were often controversial – crashing the stage at the 1998 Grammy Awards, taking place in an MTV documentary that showed him taking some of his 13 children to a welfare office to pick up food stamps in a limo, escaping a drug rehab clinic and serving time in prison.

O.D.B. would have turned 36 today, and the cause of death still remains unclear. Autopsy results could take more than a week, according to the New York City medical examiner’s office.
