Final O.D.B. album to be released.

It seems like the new and final album from the late Ol’ Dirty Bastard will finally see the light of day on Nov. 7, according to this story
from Billboard.

A Son Unique has been delayed for more than a year, but will finally be released on the two-year anniversary of the Wu-Tang Clan member’s death. O.D.B. finished most of the album before he died, so it should be true to his intentions. Often, albums are released from deceased rappers like Tupac Shakur or Notorious B.I.G. years after their death and feature cut-and-paste jobs of old verses with new beats to create new music, which often aren’t reflective of the artist’s intentions.

Ol’ Dirty Bastard was a unique character in hip-hop who often brought humor and liveliness to the otherwise serious Wu-Tang Clan. This is why I think it is important for this last album to be released, because it will give fans some closure. His previous solo album was released in 1999.
