Ol’ Dirty Full of Grace


The results of Ol’ Dirty’s autopsy aren’t out quite yet, but it was reported in today’s New York Post that he died with a baggie of white powder in his stomach and that the bag popped and the, let’s face it, coke had seeped into his body. Damn. All the more reason to legalize drugs. Also, I’ve been reading all kinds of other shit about Dirty, like his wife beefing with his other babies’ mothers, her having his body cremated so that they couldn’t do paternity tests, and her forming a record label with that bloodsucking manager of his so that they can kick their posthumous cash-in effort into full gear. Damn again, Icelene is the gulliest jig in the rap game since Suge Knight. At least we might get some new Ol’ Dirty material out of all of this still.

Oh, and here’s the actual article:

December 8, 2004 — Even after death, wildman rapper Ol’ Dirty Bastard is full of surprises — the Wu-Tang Clan founding member died with a white powdery substance hidden in his body, a law-enforcement source said yesterday.

During an autopsy of the 35-year-old rapper, a doubled plastic bag containing a white powder was discovered in his stomach, said the source.

ODB, who was born Russell Jones, collapsed and died on Nov. 13 in a Manhattan recording studio.

The cause of his death remains a mystery as the Medical Examiner’s Office awaits the result of toxicology tests.

But a source said the white powder leaked from its plastic container and seeped into the rapper’s body.

The amount of the leak is not known and it is not confirmed yet that the substance is an illegal drug. “But what else would he be swallowing a plastic bag of? ” said the source. “He wouldn’t be swallowing sugar or salt.”

ODB — who changed his moniker frequently and also went by the names Big Baby Jesus, Osirus and Dirt McGirt — had done time in drug rehab and went to prison on a 2001 drug charge.

Just a day or two before his death, ODB had reportedly flown back to New York from Colorado. He died two days shy of his 36th birthday.

Meanwhile, family members are squabbling over ODB’s estate. The rapper has at least seven children — four of them by four different women other than his wife.

Last week his widow, Icelene Jones — whom he apparently hadn’t lived with for years — was granted control of his estate by Brooklyn’s Surrogate Court.
