#Throwback | Ol’ Dirty Bastard – Brooklyn Zoo [Video]

New York, NY – It’s #ThrowbackThursday and this week marked the 8th year death anniversary of Russell Tyrone Jones aka Ol’ Dirty Bastard. On November 13th, 2004, at age 35, ODB collapsed from a drug overdose in RZA’s studio in New York City and was pronounced dead about 30 minutes later.

In dedication to his life and legacy it would only be right to post his classic “Brooklyn Zoo” from 1995. This song was the first single released off ODB’s debut solo album Return to the 36 Chambers: The Dirty Version. Not only was ODB entertaining, but he recorded some of the most influential hip-hop of the ’90’s with Wu-Tang Clan and on his own, making him an integral part of hip-hop history and culture. The track was produced by True Master and ODB himself. Check out the video below. “You gon’ looooove this.” Rest In Peace, ODB.

She graduated from York University almost 2 years ago and since then has co-founded a youth led, social enterprise called The Next Edition which uses media and art to engage youth with their community. For the past year and a half she has been working with young aspiring artists who are looking for a way to showcase their skills and have their voice heard. With juggling weekly meetings, managing a website, and planning events for hundreds of people Natasha takes refuge in urban music. Researching and knowing the latest headlines, and newest tracks in the hip-hop world is something that she loves. But more importantly for her hip-hop is a lot more than just a genre of music, it is a culture and it has shaped who she is today. Finding a way to combine her passion for music, the knowledge she has gained from working with young people and the issues she has seen in the community is a goal Natasha would like to achieve in the near future. Recently, Natasha has taken on PR work for rappers and DJs.
