ODB

Wu-Tang Clan is arguably the greatest collection of rap talent to ever be assembled and Russell “Ol' Dirty Bastard” Jones was the most captivating of them all. ODB’s raw, untamed appeal was favored among rap fans and made him one of the most beloved rappers of his generation. Sadly, the Brooklyn-born MC, who dealt with frequent legal issues, died of a drug overdose in 2004.
