WU-TANG CLAN star OL' DIRTY BASTARD made his first post-jail live
appearance onstage in New York at the weekend (13JUN03) under his new moniker
The rapper headlined a launch party for VICE magazine at PLAID, but the
gig didn't go off without incident.
McGirt showed up an hour late after a restless, sell-out crowd almost
turned riotous as the rapper's entourage stalled for time.
He eventually took to the stage, admitting, "I feel like Elton John. I
been locked down for awhile so y'all gotta excuse me. Let's see if I remember
how to do this sh**."
McGirt then thrilled his fans with a set of old favourites including
BROOKLYN ZOO and GOT YOUR MONEY.
