Words Fail

I'll just turn the mike over to the obit writer:

The rap artist ODB, whose demented rhymes, wild lifestyle and incessant legal troubles made him one of the most vivid characters in hip-hop, collapsed and died inside a recording studio Saturday. He was 35...

ODB -- also known as Ol' Dirty Bastard, Dirt McGirt, Big Baby Jesus or his legal name of Russell Jones -- was a founding member of the seminal rap group the Wu-Tang Clan in the early 1990s. With his utterly unique delivery -- alternately slurred, hyper and nonsensical -- ODB stood out even in the nine-man Clan, which featured such future stars as Method Man, RZA and Ghostface Killa.
