RZA releases song tribute on anniversary of ODB's death

Wu Tang Clan rapper Rza is keeping the memory of his late pal Old Dirty Bastard alive by releasing a tribute track to celebrate what would have been his 43rd birthday.

The Got Your Money star died from a drug overdose on 13 November, 2004, just two days before he turned 36.


Now, on the seventh anniversary of his passing, RZA has remembered his old friend and collaborator by recording the heartfelt tune Gone with fellow musicians James Black, Justin Nozuka and Kobra Khan.


RZA has also dedicated the video to the memory of another hip-hop great, Heavy D, and late boxer Joe Frazier, who both passed away earlier this month (Nov11).
