HAPPY 50TH BIRTHDAY OL’ DIRTY BASTARD! ODB’S MOST MEMORABLE MOMENTS

BY SHA BE ALLAH • NOVEMBER 13, 2018

On this day Hip Hop history we celebrate the birth of one of the culture brightest stars, the late, great Russell Jones, affectionately known to the Hip Hop world as Ol’ Dirty Bastard.

To Hip Hop, Dirt Dog was more than a rapper. His personality and ostentatious demeanor were representative of the soul of Hip Hop. He did not let the fame and status take away from his character. Those who knew him said that he remained true to himself throughout his career making him quite the public figure. According to some, Ol’ Dirty was the type to help an old woman cross the street then, once he got to the other side, run a bystander for his jewels. He was a noble man with a righteous cause for sinning. His legacy is one that will not fade anytime soon.

In honor of his 50th degree day, we have put together a list of some of Big Baby Jesus’ most outrageous and memorable moments and these aren’t the only ones to chose from.
