Ol’ Dirty Bastard Day approved for November 15 by NYC Council

Earlier this month, NYC mayor Eric Adams officially declared November 9 “Wu-Tang Day” in honor of the 30th anniversary of their debut album, Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), and now another member is set to get their own day in NYC. The City Council voted in favor of making November 15 (which would’ve been the late rappers birthday) “Ol’ Dirty Bastard Day”, Gothamist reports. Democratic Councilmember Chi Ossé sponsored the resolution, and he pointed out, “He’s from Central Brooklyn. We do rep ODB in the Brooklyn Zoo,” adding that he’s interested in honoring RZA and GZA in the same manner in the future, City and State New York reports.

ODB’s life and legacy are also the subject of a new podcast, and a new Ghostface Killah action figure was recently announced.

We caught Wu-Tang’s September NYC shows at Barclays Center on their tour with Nas and De La Soul, and at Madison Square Garden as part of the “Hip Hop Forever” celebration of hip hop’s 50th anniversary. See pictures from both below.
