Russel Jones | ODB FINAL CUT1 #WuTang #Forever
"Russel Jones aka Ol' Dirty Bastard was born on November 15th and he passed away on November 13th. Every year, his family and friends wish that more people celebrated these dates. The Live from the Streets crew and ODB's family have teamed up to create a special episode out of old VHS tapes. The episode drops to celebrate the legendary artist and to remind people to always remember this week as both a high and low point of hip hop culture. In the end, we all need to celebrate the legacy of ODB." Huge thanks to ODB, Momma Cherry, Rza, Ashley, Barson, Menace, Missery, Icelene and of course Sean the White Rapper for making the whole thing happen. RIP to the legendary ODB, he will never be forgotten. P.S. More ODB tributes are in the works... stay tuned. If you are on the east coast, his family is throwing a one of kind tribute show in Brooklyn on November 18th... buy tickets here: http://bit.ly/2f1KhiS **Please share this video with your friends, family and everyone who you think would appreciate it. We don't have any record label, media company, tv network or marketing budget so we need people to spread the word.**
