Fans of the Wu-Tang Clan still uphold the legacy of the king-sized, zany character in the Ol’ Dirty Bastard. The estate of the late rapper has announced a new partnership that also includes the production of a reality show featuring the family of ODB, along with other related business moves.
The good folks over at HipHopDX reported on the freshly inked deal between the estate’s administrator, ODB’s widow Icelene Jones, and Four Screens Productions. The deal will help manage the intellectual property of the ODB and other business ventures moving forward, most especially the aforementioned reality series.
“Ol’ Dirty Bastard is a legend and a Hip Hop icon,” Four Screens’ president Messiah Jacobs says in a press release discussing the management deal. “Although his life was cut short, there is still more work to do. His fans want to see more and hear more, and with Four Screens’ creative background, the Estate can give them just that.”
Four Screens Production has also announced a reality television program starring Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s family.
Although Four Screens and the estate are now officially linked, they’ve worked together in the past when the company helped the estate get the image of ODB presented as a hologram during the Wu-Tang Clan’s performances at last year’s Rock The Bell concerts. The rapper’s son, Young Dirty Bastard who bears an uncanny resemblance to his dad, was also part of the show.
There has not been an official air date released for the show, but Four Screen promises that fans of ODB will see more of his likeness in the near future.
