ODB: Trouble life, sudden death

The rapper ODB, whose legal name is Russell Jones died inside a recording studio at the age of 35 on Saturday. His utterly unique rhymes, wild lifestyle and incessant legal troubles made him one of the most vivid characters in hip-hop.

ODB had complained of chest pains before collapsing at the &to=http:// english.pravda.ru/main/2002/04/25/28029_.html ' target=_blank>Manhattan studio, and was dead by the time paramedics arrived, said Gabe Tesoriero, a spokesperson for ODB's record label, Roc-a-Fella.

The cause of death was not immediately clear, but ODB had recently finished a prison sentence for drug possession and escaping a rehab clinic. He would have turned 36 on Monday, informs News24.

He was pronounced dead at 5:04 p.m., officials said.

"This ain't no joke. This is real life, just like you lose your mother, or your brother," said fellow Wu-Tang rapper GhostFace Killah, when ODB's body was brought out of the W. 34th St. studio three hours later.

"This is a big loss," said Killah, who said ODB had complained to others of chest pain. "But I guess he's with the Father now. He's in good hands."

ODB, who also dubbed himself Big Baby Jesus, Osiris and Dirt McGirt, had been preparing a comeback album for Roc-A-Fella Records and was slated to perform in a Wu-Tang reunion show at Continental Airlines Arena last Friday night, wrote New York Daily News.
