Wu-Tang Clan's O.D.B.'s estate announces a new management deal with Four Screens Production.
Other than a hologram performance, it appears that Wu-Tang Clan fans can still uphold the legacy of the late Ol Dirty Bastard. The estate of the late rapper has recently announced a new partnership that includes the production of a reality show featuring the family of ODB, along with other related business moves.
According to hiphopdx, a deal has been inked between ODB’s widow, Icelene Jones, and Four Screens Productions. The deal will help manage the intellectual property of ODB and other business ventures moving forward, especially a new reality series.
"Ol' Dirty Bastard is a legend and a Hip Hop icon," Four Screens' president Messiah Jacobs says in a press release. "Although his life was cut short, there is still more work to do. His fans want to see more and hear more, and with Four Screens' creative background, the Estate can give them just that."
Four Screens Production has also announced a reality television program starring Ol' Dirty Bastard's family.
“Since working with Messiah, the estate has really seen growth," Jones said in a press release. "Four Screens is a company that makes things happen. We wanted to create a reality show and we are doing it. We wanted to have an O.D.B. hologram at Rock the Bells and we did it. We wanted my son Young Dirty to perform there and he did. Messiah and his team make it happen and that is what this estate is about."
Four Screens' Creative Director, Nicole Beckett, also spoke about the potential of the Ol' Dirty Bastard deal. She added,
“We are always coming up with new ideas and projects concerning O.D.B. As a fan myself, I am constantly in search of the next great collaboration concerning this iconic rapper, whether it be a commercial for pistachios, a bio pic similar to VH1’s TLC, a clothing line, skateboards, whatever…O.D.B. was a talent and a character like we will never see again and his legacy will live on.”
