Ol’ Dirty Bastard Tribute Film to Premiere in New York

A documentary film about Wu-Tang rapper Ol’ Dirty Bastard is scheduled to premiere at Harlem’s National Black Theatre on Tuesday, November 10.

‘Dirty: One Word Can Change the World’ was directed by ODB’s cousin, Raison Allah. The film chronicles the life of the gifted vocalist and hip-hop icon, and features interviews with members of the Wu, Sunz of Man, Killarmy, the Black Knights and the Brooklyn Zu.

The Zu, who will perform at the premiere, was a group that ODB formed, comprised of his cousin 12 O’Clock, Shorty S—stain (our favorite rapper ever), Murdock, Zu Keeper and Buddha Monk.

Following the screening and live show, members of the Wu, Zu and author Terrie Williams, who penned ‘Black Pain: It Just Looks Like We Aren’t Hurting,’ will discuss Ol’ Dirty, and also relevent information on mental health and substance abuse prevention.

Dirty was as well-known for his entertaining and unpredictable behavior as he was for his genius approach to rapping and singing. He went by more than a dozen incredible aliases, including Big Baby Jesus, Dirt Dog and Dirt McGirt. He was one of the rap world’s most entertaining characters, though he battled addiction and mental illness for much of his career.

His 1995 debut album ‘Return to the 36 Chambers: The Dirty Version’ went platinum and his 1999 follow-up, ‘N—- Please,’ went gold. He died in November 2004 of a drug overdose.
