Ol' Dirty Bastard
Russell Tyrone Jones (November 15, 1968 – November 13, 2004), usually known as Ol' Dirty Bastard or ODB, was an American rapper, occasional producer, and sometimes, an actor. He was one of the founding members of the Wu-Tang Clan, a Hip-Hop group from Staten Island, New York that rose to mainstream prominence with their 1993 debut album Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). He later went solo, but his professional success was hampered by erratic personal behavior and frequent legal troubles, including incarceration. ODB suddenly died on November 13, 2004, two days before his 36th birthday, due to an accidental drug overdose.
