In a recent Drink Champs episode Busta Rhymes reveals that Ol’ Dirty Bastard (Russell Tyrone Jones), one of the founding member of the Wu-Tang Clan, was not a crazy as people think he was, but rather a calculated genius.
“As crazy as you say Ol’ Dirty Bastard is, there really wasn’t nothing crazy about him. Crazy needs to be changed to calculated. The God was very calculated.”Busta Rhymes
Paraphrasing, Busta says that a dumb man can not act smart, but a smart man can act dumb. Ol’ Dirty Bastard was a mastermind hidden in plain sight, as many could not recognize the genius behind his outrageous antics. Busta rhymes also speaks on how O.D.B. was one of the “sharpest” and “swiftest” in their 5 Percenter building sessions where they would discuss the day’s “mathematics” and other sciences of the universe.
