Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

“An unprecedented portrait of Jones’ inner life.” (Salon)

“Monk captures [ODB’s] charisma and charm, but also the joy and pain that fame brought [him], as well as the drugs, the women and the demise. It’s a great work in honor of an individual who tried to walk the best line he could.” (Ebony)

“Cuts through the urban legends to present more complex sides to the infamous icon.” (i.-D. Magazine)

“An eye-witness account about the life and times of the larger-than-life character.” (Philadelphia City Paper)

“Monk is a genial narrator and provides an authentic look at the N.Y.C. hip-hop scene [and] a unique perspective on the troubled life of an intriguing artist.” (Publishers Weekly)

“Everywhere Ol’ Dirty Bastard went, Buddha Monk was there. Buddha was Dirty’s hype man on stage, and he helped protect him on tour when Dirty didn’t have any security. Buddha was everything to Dirty.” (Icelene Jones, Dirty's widow)

“Dirty and Buddha were the twin towers. There ain’t no Brooklyn Zu without them. It was rare to see Dirty do a show without Buddha Monk.” (Hell Razah of Sunz of Man)

“Provides a unique perspective [and an] entertaining, insightful portrait . . . For even a casual hip-hop fan, The Dirty Version is an easy and enlightening read. And for true hip-hop heads, this is some essential stuff. Word is bond.” (Winnipeg Free Press)

Hlarious, profound, entertaining, and inspiring . . . One of the most interesting and unpredictable biographies I’ve ever read. The Dirty Version travels light-years beyond ODB’s shocking headlines to illustrate the relentless humanity of a free loving American icon. (MK Asante, author of BUCK: A MEMOIR)

“Buddha Monk and Dirty were like Batman and Robin. Buddha wore many hats - he was an engineer, hype man, bouncer, and bodyguard. As long as I’ve been working with my cousins in Wu-Tang, Buddha Monk was there. I can’t remember a time when he wasn’t.” (John "Mook" Gibbons, founder and CEO of Wu-Tang Management and cousin to RZA, GZA, and Ol' Dirty Bastard)

Présentation de l'éditeur

On the tenth anniversary of his death, The Dirty Version is the first biography of hip hop superstar and founding member of the Wu-Tang Clan, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, to be written by someone from his inner circle: his right-hand man and best friend, Buddha Monk.

Ol’ Dirty Bastard rocketed to fame with the Wu-Tang Clan, the raucous and renegade group that altered the world of hip hop forever. ODB was one of the Clan’s wildest icons and most inventive performers, and when he died of an overdose in 2004 at the age of thirty-five, millions of fans mourned the loss. ODB lives on in epic proportions and his antics are legend: he once picked up his welfare check in a limousine; lifted a burning car off a four-year-old girl in Brooklyn; stole a fifty-dollar pair of sneakers on tour at the peak of his success. Many have questioned whether his stunts were carefully calculated or the result of paranoia and mental instability.

Now, Dirty’s friend since childhood, Buddha Monk, a Wu-Tang collaborator on stage and in the studio, reveals the truth about the complex and talented performer. From their days together on the streets of Brooklyn to the meteoric rise of Wu-Tang’s star, from bouts in prison to court-mandated rehab, from Dirty’s favorite kind of pizza to his struggles with fame and success, Buddha tells the real story—The Dirty Version—of the legendary rapper.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 you really don’t need to be in order to find member Ol’ Dirty Bastard and his antics fascinating 8 février 2015
Par Toni Campbell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Although I was never a big Wu-Tang Clan fan, you really don’t need to be in order to find member Ol’ Dirty Bastard and his antics fascinating. It’s been 10 years since he died at the young age of 35 and besides the many media stories about his brushes with the law and drugs, there’s very little known about Russell Jones, the man. The Dirty Version is written by his best friend Buddha Monk who is also a rapper and producer. On the one hand it’s great to get a first hand account from someone who was with Dirty sometimes 24/7. On the other hand, that makes this more of a story about their friendship rather than a straight biography. Buddha can come off as a little self-serving at times when talking about all of the work he did for Dirty and was never paid for or anecdotes about his own rap career. If you a hip-hop fan, this will be an interesting read, but will ultimately leave you wanting more.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This book is an easy read about a fascinating subject 7 janvier 2015

Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This book is an easy read about a fascinating subject. Do you know how to show and prove? Do you know the terrible prophecy ODB foretold for himself? How about the time he lifted a car off a kid?
Do yourself a favor and read this book. It won't change your life but it will entertain you and enrich your understanding of odb, hip hop, and the Wu.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great book! So good to read confirmation about stories ... 28 janvier 2015

Great book! So good to read confirmation about stories that I had heard rumored and reported on ODB. Buddah Monk gave his side of life with Ason Unique and it was filled with beauty and blemishes. Must have in anyone's hip hop library
