We have some potentially great news for fans of Ol’ Dirty Bastard, aka Dirt McGirt, aka Big Baby Jesus, aka … you get my point. The late, animated Wu-Tang Clan rapper will have two, count ‘em, TWO biopics made about his life. RZA told Indie Wire that the first film, Dirty White Boy, will focus its narrative on the final two years of ODB’s life and his relationship with his manager. The other is titled Dirt: One Word Could Change The World and will tell the story of the MC’s early life and rise to fame.
Here’s what RZA had to say about the projects:
“His mother is involved with Dirty White Boy. I’m involved with both, anything about his life, I want to help out with any capacity. His mother told me I should come in and help.”
“As far as Dirt, that actually starts back when we was young . . . Me and [ODB] ran through this city, man, cutting school, stealin’ pretzels from the hot dog stand, being vagabonds, sleeping on the trains, drinking ’40s on the back of the A Train, rapping, getting chased by the police.”
“It’s a coming-of-age story that me and him and a few of our cousins went through. Then it goes on into finally becoming Wu-Tang, going through that hell. And then it takes on his side of it, not my side.”
