A&E to produce “definitive” documentary on Ol’ Dirty Bastard

Wu Tu Clan fans all over will be excited to hear that rarely viewed A&E channel has decided to try and get in the popular documentary game by making a hip hop legend their new muse.

Ol’ Dirty Bastard, born Russell Tyrone Jones, is one of the founding members of the Wu-Tang Clan, a rap group primarily from Staten Island that was and still is a benchmark in the rap scene.

A&E promises a “definitive” look at the performer born Russell Jones, produced with the cooperation of ODB’s estate and featuring “a never-before-seen personal archive shot by his wife, Icelene Jones, and access to his closest friends and family.”

“This culture-defining special,” A&E says, “humanizes ODB as a man, a father, and a husband like never before… providing an intimate picture of ODB’s life and reflecting on his lasting impact on music and culture.”

I have a few friends that will be chomping to get at this.
