Ft. Green Legend, Ol' Dirty Bastard, Dead at 35 (Gothamist)

Dirt McGirt was always a messed up dude - constantly in trouble with the law, fighting substance abuse - and he never rached his full creative potential after the first Wu and solo albums. Yet, despite all his problems, he had a certain hint of genius, a joie de vivre that made it irresistable for me to pay attention to him.

Sad day for me. ODB was finally out of prison and had a recording contract again. He was many things to many people, for better or worse, but he will always be Dirty to me.

"Baby, I don't have no problem with you fucking me, but I have a little problem with you not fucking me."
