The long delayed Ol’ Dirty Bastard documentary, “Dirty: Platinum Edition,” is finally available for streaming at the New Hollywood Online Film Festival website (NuHo). The documentary, which was directed by ODB’s cousin Raison Allah, was previously put on the backburner due to legal disputes between the NuHo and the rapper’s estate. The NuHo had planned to premiere the film at the Brooklyn Academy of much on November 15, but due to legal turmoil, the release was pushed back.
ODB, born Russell Tyrone Jones, was a founding member of Brooklyn-based rap group the Wu-Tang Clan. ODB, after helping establish the Wu-Tang Clan as one of the most prominent rap outfits of the 90s, went on to produce for the Fugees and record several solo albums. In 2004, ODB died of a drug overdose at the age of 35.
“Dirty: Platinum Edition” is now streaming at the NuHo website, where it can be purchased alongside additional Wu-Tang Clan documentaries and a digital album. The packages range from $5.99 — $9.99.
The documentary was produced by New Hollywood Entertainment, a parent company of the New Hollywood Online Film Festival.
