Personal Quote:

Please calm down...I went and bought me a suit today that costed me a lot of money today, because I figured that Wu-Tang was gonna win. I don't know how you all see it, but when it comes to the children, Wu-Tang is for the children. We teach the children. Puffy is good, but Wu-Tang is the best. I want you all to know that this is O.D.B., and I love you all. Peace. - at the 1998 Grammy Awards, in ... See more »


In February 1998, he rushed to the aid of a four-year-old girl who had been hit by a car outside of his studio. The child was trapped underneath the vehicle when Dirty and some of his friends lifted the car off of her. He wanted no publicity for this heroic act but the girl's family and onlookers recognized him and alerted the media. See more »
