#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.
