Brooklyn Zoo, shame on you.
I’m not one for conspiracy theories but this is a great segment on the death of ODB. It features interviews with most of the Clan aswell as Dirty’s own mother.
For further inquiries into the topic I suggest you seek out the documentary “Dirty: One Word Can Change The World”. It’s an entirely different piece from the clip above but it was directed by one of the members of ODB’s Brooklyn Zu and is another great insight into his death aswell as his life.
Ol’ Dirty Bastard hijacks the stage at the 1998 Grammy Music Awards. His crew’s massive opus Wu-Tang Forever was nominated for Best Rap Album but lost to Diddy’s No Way Out early in the evening. But ODB finally got a word in later in the evening while Shawn Colvin was accepting the award for Song of the Year.
“It’s nice that I went and bought me an outfit today that costed a lot of money, you know what I mean? ‘Cause I figured that Wu-Tang was gonna win,” ODB said. “I don’t know how you all see it, but when it comes to the children, Wu-Tang is for the children. We teach the children. You know what I mean? Puffy is good, but Wu-Tang is the best, Okay? I want you all to know that this is ODB, and I love you all. Peace!”
