ODB, the clownish MC of the Wu-Tang Clan, lived an unhinged, raucous life that ended too early. While he was a vital member of the ground breaking and widely influential hip hop group, Dirty is better known now for the impressive list of vices and fuck ups. He was father to nine children by numerous women, had a national rap sheet, did time in Clinton Correctional, abused crack, was an un-treated manic depressive, and died virtually broke after two solo gold records and a platinum Wu record.

Dark. Sparse. Brutal. Cormac McCarthy’s Pulitzer Prize winning classic is the story of a father and son wandering a forgotten road in post-apocalyptic America. Everyone they know is dead, wife, mother, friends. Burned by the fires that have ravaged the planet for decades or murdered in the violent world that is the fire’s aftermath.
