This is the story of Old Dirty Bastard, aka Ason Unique, the magnetic secret weapon of the WuTang Clan and hip hop hall of famer. Photographer Khalik Allah takes us on a journey into ODB’s world, exploring the beliefs, background and experiences that shaped his unforgettable music. ODB was a radical, who lived a life of unlikely highs and heart wrenching lows. We go in search of this deeper, more complicated side to a man the mainstream media presented as a joke. ODB was known as a larger than life and comic rapper. Ol’ Dirty’s life was so much more. He spoke truth to power and paid a cost.
