Thread: A Son Unique Might Never Come Out

    Default A Son Unique Might Never Come Out

    'DIRTY' SHAME
    SUITS & FAMILY FEUD KO RAPPER'S LAST ALBUM
    By BRAD HAMILTON

    December 10, 2006 -- The down-and-dirty fight over Ol' Dirty Bastard's estate is getting dirtier.

    The rapper's highly anticipated posthumous album might not be released because of an ugly dispute over money with record producer Damon Dash, according to court records and sources close to the matter.

    Dash shelled out $1 million to ODB and has the rights to his last album, "A Son Unique," which was supposed to be released Nov. 7.

    But he owes "a couple hundred thousand more" on the contract to the estate, says ODB's former co-manager, Jarred Weisfeld.

    And now the record mogul won't pay, according to Weisfeld and Icelene Jones, the rapper's widow.

    Complicating the matter is Dash's failure to turn over his documents related to the deal, Jones and other sources say. Dash's spokesperson would not comment.

    "If money is still owed to the estate . . . Mr. Dash does not intend to pay them and will drop his plans to release the record," Jones claims in papers filed in Brooklyn Surrogate Court on Oct. 23 in an ongoing family battle over ODB's troubled estate.

    Jones is fighting with Weisfeld and ODB's mom and manager, Cherry Jones, for control of the estate.

    The widow claims the mother helped herself to hundreds of thousands of her late son's cash. "It appears that $200,000 to $500,000 of funds belonging to [ODB] may have been misused or be owed by Cherry Jones to the estate," Icelene Jones claims in court papers.

    "That's the most retarded allegation I've ever heard in my life," said Weisfeld.

    "Icelene knows where all that money went - it went to Icelene. All Dirty did was take care of her."

    The album was set to hit stores exactly two years after the death of Ol' Dirty Bastard, who was born Russell Jones and raised in Fort Greene, Brooklyn. The rapper collapsed and died of a drug overdose while making the recordings at a studio on East 34th Street.

    "A Son Unique," which features guest performances by Missy Elliot, Macy Gray and ex-members of ODB's former hit group, Wu-Tang Clan, had been heavily hyped.

    oh well
    The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. (Romans 1:18-20)

    How do you want to fuck somebody's legacy over?
    How do you want to burden someone's life with legal troubles even after he's dead?
    How do you want to delay an album into infinity?
