Ol’ Dirty Bastard is Really Crazy

Long before Kanye, the late ODB was known for bumrushing stages during award shows. At least ODB said he was doing it for the kids

By now everyone has heard numerous stories about the zanny antics of Wu Tang’s Ol’ Dirty Bastard. Thus far this year he has done everything from bum-rush the stage of the American Music Awards and proclaim that Wu-Tang was for the kids. He also had to respond to a law suit that claimed he had not paid child support for his 13 kids. ODB made headlines when he was shot in the back this year by armed intruders who stormed his Brooklyn apartment. He stunned the world by walking out the hospital within hours of the shooting. He became the talk of the town days later when he went to a sporting goods store in Richmond Virginia and stole a pair of 50 dollar sneakers. A warrant was issued for his arrest and from what I understand-to this day ODB still has not dealt with the matter. I know he has missed a couple of court dates.

Now, while people were recovering from the whole Virginia incident, ODB made headlines again when his jeep was stolen from in front of his recording studio. ODB also shocked the world when he changed his name to Big Baby Jesus. Needless to say, his non-Christ-like behavior angered a lot of church going folks who don’t like taking the Lord’s name in vein.

ODB found himself making headlines when he saved the lives of some kids who were caught inside a burning vehicle. He also made noise when he got himself arrested not once but twice in LA. First he set it off by booted from the House Of Blues nite club after acting ill while in a drunkin’ stupor. He found the handcuffs being slapped on him when he began threatening the security guards. His most recent LA arrest came when he was found scaling the security fence of an ex girlfriends work place. He had threatened to kill her. Prior to all that, ODB shocked folks over in Germany by standing on the balcony of his hotel butt naked. The list of ODB and his antics is a long one indeed. If memory serves me correctly, he was probably arrested close to 10 times over the past year.

Most folks, reading about ODB may think he’s doing all this for publicity. They may think he’s out trying to get a good laugh. Well last week we at KMEL Radio in San Francisco got a chance to see ODB in action for real. He came along with RZA to sit in on Sway‘s afternoon show. He was reeking with alcohol. They had to bleep out all his comments because he kept using profanities. Lucky for Sway he was wise enough to pre-record all the phone calls from fans so he could edit them before they aired.. ODB was off the hook in the studio.

He later on scared the receptionist by first asking for a hug. She attempted to give him a polite hug at which point he grabbed her and tried to ‘feel her up’. He then demanded her phone number and when she repeatedly refused, he got mad and told her he wasn’t impressed by her. He walked away and came back and again demanded a phone number. The receptionist left the office and did not return until he was escorted out the building. He then upset the receptionist from our neighboring radio station which is housed on the same floor by asking if he and her could make babies.

ODB then took it to another level by pulling out an electric stun gun and loudly proclaimed that he was going to take a dump. At that point he walked into the men’s room and proceeded to live up to his words while at the same time he was loudly singin’ for all to hear about his excremental prowess.

ODB left his mark in the city of San Francisco by allegedly stealing a leather jacket from a local record store and a pair of sun glasses from another locale. He was not caught and apprehended for any of these incidents. To put it simply, ODB is definitely on some different stuff. He for one without a doubt has a serious drinking problem. Hopefully he straightens up before he seriously hurts some one or some one hurts him..

Puffy’s Boys Beat Down a Rap Magazine Editor

It looks like the perilous relationship
between hip hop artists and writers have just gotten strained again.
The latest incident involves Blaze Magazine editor and chief
Jessie Washington and a producer out of Puff Daddy‘s
camp relationship. According to a story in The Associated Press,
Washington was attacked by 4 men who barged into his Manhattan
office and pummeled him. One of the four men accused of beaten
Washington was Derek ‘D-Dot’ Angellettie who works as a producer for
Sean Puffy Combs.

Derek ‘D-Dot’ Angellettie

Angellettie has vehemently denied his innocence-so much so that he
has volunteered to go down to police headquarters for questioning.
None of the other assailants were identified.. However, the story
that has been circulating around the music industry was D-Dot and
his crew were upset by a recent article that appeared in Blaze.

Unfortunately for Washington this incident is the second
confrontation he has had since he launched the new magazine 5
months ago. This past summer word had gotten out about Washington
having a gun pulled on him by Wyclef Jean. In this scenario, Wyclef
was upset about an editorial regarding Wyclef‘s artist Canibus.

Wyclef

Wyclef has steadfastly denied the allegations although industry
heads have maintained that Wyclef rolls with a posse of kids who
have no problem acting ill when upset about something. Washington
himself came under fire because he waited for more than a month
before publicly talking about the incident. He was accused of using
the incident as a publicity stunt for his new magazine. In addition
Washington did not involve law enforcement. When questioned about
that. Washington noted that he had been taught not to involve the
police when there is a problem between two Black men. His
contention was, the police would make matters worse.

It will be interesting to see how this whole drama plays itself out,
and whether or not Washington will call the police. In this case,
Washington was beaten bad enough that it landed him in a hospital.

This unfortunate event brings to mind the topsy-turvy relationship
between writers and artists. Many artists have maintained that hip
hop journalist have unfairly criticized their material in an attempt
to garner a reputation and make a name for themselves. They have
also contended that bad write ups have resulted in financial set
backs. Writers on the other hand, have noted that hip hop artists
have not learned the rules of the music business industry and
incidents of violence [and there have been many] have been the
result of ignorance and kids trying to bring a street mentality
into the world of business.
