Tim Westwood Shares a Rare Ol' Dirty Bastard 11-Minute Freestyle From 1995

Tim Westwood continues his Throwback Thursday series today with a super rare Ol' Dirty Bastard freestyle from 1995. While some of the bars were probably used elsewhere, ODB completely snapped during this freestyle that lasted over 11 minutes and featured the Wu-Tang Clan legend going in over a number of crazy instrumentals. ODB not only spits some impressive lines, but he brings through a dynamic flow and cadence to make this freestyle catchier than most.

How the Wu-Tang Clan Rose Up Out of GZA's 'Words From the Genius' Debut

It may be hard to imagine nowadays, but in the late ’70s to late ’80s, rap was mostly seen as a fad by corporate America, if it was even noticed at all. With hip­-hop being left alone to build its own infrastructure, it seemed like anyone who was plain dope enough had a shot at making a name in this game of rap. One of the many young men dreaming of leaving his mark as a rapper wasRobert Diggs, who learned to rhyme from his cousin Gary Grice in the summer of 1980. He would go on to pass those lessons to another cousin of his by the name of Russell Jones, and the three would eventually form a group called All in Together Now. Born in 1969, Robert came of age during those formative years in the 1980s when rap did well, but when he and his cousin Gary were finally granted a turn to rock mics themselves in 1991, something in the hip-­hop landscape had dramatically shifted: Money had entered into the equation.

RZA & Martin Shkreli Sued For Copyright Infringement Over Artwork In Wu Tang Clan's $2 Million Album

(Reuters) Martin Shkreli faces a new legal headache, a lawsuit claiming that his $2 million Wu-Tang Clan album contains illustrations ripped off from a New York artist, who now wants the former drug executive to pay for them.

In a complaint filed on Tuesday in Manhattan federal court, Jason Koza said he never allowed his fan art depicting Wu-Tang members to be used in packaging for the hip-hop group's "Once Upon a Time in Shaolin," the sole copy of which Shkreli bought.

Koza, 34, of Copiague, New York, said he thought his nine works would appear only on the website

But the Fashion Institute of Technology graduate now blames Wu-Tang leader Robert "RZA" Diggs for including them in the "Shaolin" album, and Shkreli for allowing three works depicting Inspectah Deck, Ol' Dirty B@stard and Raekwon to accompany a Jan. 29 article at

"Mr. Koza was happy when his work appeared on the website," the complaint said. "Mr. Koza never granted a license for his works to be copied or displayed anywhere (else)."

Other defendants include Paddle8, which auctioned the album, and Wu Tang-affiliated producer Tarik "Cilvaringz" Azzougarh.

Koza said Cilvaringz has acknowledged the infringement, asking in a Jan. 31 email "if you want to skype discussing the use of your drawings. Thanks bro."

Koza is seeking unspecified damages plus profits stemming from copyright infringement.

His lawyer Peter Scoolidge said in a phone interview that Shkreli "didn't need to know" the illustrations were protected to be liable. "There is no intent requirement for copyright infringement," he said.

The case is Koza v Diggs et al, U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York, No. 16-00956.
