RIP-Ol' Dirty Bastard

I heard the news on WPGC 95.5 here in Washington DC that the Ol' Dirty Bastard (AKA Dirt McDirt and Big Baby Jesus)died.
Here is the announcement that it is official. He was working on a new album.Here's how it went:

On the eve of a comeback, one of rap's most colorful characters, Ol' Dirty Bastard, aka Russell Jones, collapsed and died this afternoon in a Manhattan recording studio. He was 35, but just two days shy of his 36th birthday.

Jones was pronounced dead at 5:04 p.m., said Ellen Borakove, a spokeswoman for the city medical examiner's office. An autopsy will be conducted Sunday, she said.

He will be missed.
