Overview

On May 1, 2003, Russell Tyrone Jones was released from prison on parole for a new and sober beginning. He had a mega deal for a new album and a clothing line all about sealed. After several months in a mental ward and a couple of years in jail, his new, high-profile management team arranged for a press conference to announce the fact that Ol’ Dirty Bastard was back. Well, not Ol’ Dirty Bastard, but a new Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Dirt McGirt.

Known as Ol’ Dirty Bastard from the ultra-successful rap group, Wu-Tang Clan, Russell Jones carved out a successful solo career that spanned over ten years, but his wave of stardom crashed into New York State Prison. Recklessly, ODB had run his career and financial situation into the ground with street and prescription drugs, alcohol, erratic behavior, hangers-on, and child support, which he paid only when he had to.

According to author Spencer Sadler, “Tracing the life of Russell Tyrone Jones may be painful, but warranted. Funny, yet tragic. Uplifting, regardless of how depressing. His loyal legions of fans still create social networking tributes online and post on his Facebook and Myspace pages, and they still recognize his birthday every year in internet blogs. He has sold millions of records, touched lives, and left a lasting mark on rap music.

This is the full undoctored, unedited, unrestrained account of Ol' Dirty Bastard AKA O.D.B., Ason Unique, Big Baby Jesus, Osirus, Dirt McGirt, OL' Dirt Dawg, Dirt Bag, Ason Jones, Joe Bananas, Ol' Dirt Schultz, Freeloading Rusty, Dirty, and The Professor..........from birth to DEATH.
