O.D.B. dead at 35

Great MC and funny as hell. I'll never forget his VH-1 special when he got out of jail. Unintentional comedy at it's best.

Very sad. A good but troubled guy. He'll be missed.

Forget the man crush. I drop what I'm doing to watch Zack Greinke pitch.

Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Sorry to sound callous but, good riddance. I don't wish death on anyone but this is one guy I could really care less is gone. You may now return to your normally scheduled condolances. :-/

Well, damn damn damn. I know, no swearing, but dayum.

Though I have to admit I'm not surprised. The man was one of the great crazy geniuses of hip-hop. A classic example of a tortured genius of a very particular kind. Bless him for his madness, music, talent, and just for being outright one of the freakiest-deakiest mofos to walk the earth. Godspeed.

Finally, if you don't have Return To The 36 Chambers: The Dirty Version then you haven't heard arguably one the best of the Wu-Tang solo albums and a hip-hop 'must have' in my book.

(Free copies distributed to anyone named Tavish, I wouldn't be at all surprised if he and Bill Hicks found some common ground up there)

I'm still in shock. I just can't believe it.

Nobody should die that young.

RIP ODB. :,-(
