Ol’ Dirty Bastard Documentary ‘DIRTY: Platinum Edition’ Released Online


After a month of legal troubles, the production team behind DIRTY: Platinum Edition have settled their issues with the late rapper’s estate and been given clearance to release their film to the public.

Back in November, DIRTY: Platinum Edition was set to have its world premiere at the NuHo Film Festival in Brooklyn. Unfortunately, just before the film could make its debut the planned release had to stop due to a cease and desist order issued by ODB’s Estate.

At the time, the NuHo Film Festival apologized for the film not being screened:

The NuHo Film Festival apologizes to all the individuals who attended the November 15th red carpet screening, to our media partner AllHipHop.com who was not expecting the event to turn out the way it did, to the press that attended, but most importantly to all Wu-Tang and ODB fans who were expecting to enjoy the film on November 15th at the Brooklyn Academy of Music.

The filmmakers screened DIRTY for the people representing ODB’s estate, including his widowed wife Icelene Jones, in the weeks that followed. Now, as of December 7, the film is available for streaming on the NuHo website. Those hoping to see the flick must pay a low fee to access the content, but each purchase comes with additional Wu-Tang related media that is sure to ease the pain of paying $6 for a movie about one of the greatest personalities to ever grace the music scene. We haven’t watched the film yet ourselves, but we certainly plan to do so in the near future.
