Video: Dante Ross Honors ODB at Brooklyn Zoo

In honor of the five-year anniversary of Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s passing this Friday (November 13), XXLMag.com took ODB’s former A&R and longtime friend Dante Ross on a field trip to the Brooklyn Zoo, located in Prospect Park, to hear his craziest memories of the beloved Wu-Tang rapper.

The first clip finds Dante explaining one particular X-rated rendezvous Dirty had during a studio session for the recording of his debut, Return to the 36 Chambers.

XXL will be dropping two more XXcLusive videos on Thursday and Friday. Be sure to check back tomorrow to find out why Dirt Dog made like Ron Browz and jumped out the window.

R.I.P. ODB

    What’s the highest score? No way you get anywhere near the mid-level precentile. I know people that studied for months that flunked that shit.

    By the way, I score a 740 on my verbal SAT’s. I’ve been waiting for an opprotunity to disclose that for a long time.

  21. Mr. Damn, He Ain't Coppin' That, Is He? Says:

    @ beezy – don’t remember exactly – low to mid 160s(?) took it only once but don’t recall.

    lol, word. It’s not, but I really didnt know when I was gonna get this close again.

    With that said, my total score was only like a 1210.

    I’m horrible at math and was relatively hungover. I’m pretty sure I was also mildly stoned.

  31. Chief Ali aka The One Who Stay Building Says:

    WOW. I heard about the spilt, but just assumed it was some random hooker, not a hooker that managed to hitch herself on another players money train. Gilbert lost.

    >>the lowest possible is 120

    the back-story is one of our coworkers is studying for it, and it has created alot of shit talk in the office…so one of my more egotistical colleagues was talkin hella shit and we got into betting.

    At first the best was $5k. We took a practice exam at lunch the next day and I scored 162 and he scored 156 or something, so he begged me to lower it to a $1k.

    Now that I have a better feel for the logic games im thinking i can get a 165 or up.

  37. Beezy Says:

    i got a 1320 on my SATS…Verbal was 700+, not sure of the exact figure

  38. Mr. Damn, He Ain't Coppin' That, Is He? Says:

    shaq cleared the path for that baby. when your dick is like a 2 liter bottle of pop, the baby won’t need much pushing. pause(?)

    Yea fam, after pre-algebra in 7th grade, my mind just turned off to it. I cheated/talked my way into passing grades for every math class after until I graduated college.

    roff, wow, I really unknowingly insulted your intelligence.

    But how comparable are the practice exams to the actual? The SAT’s were a little off if I remember correctly.

    wow with comments like that you should score a combined 320

  54. Nanyanen Says:

    There’s some other test beside the SAT called the FCAT I think. Only nerds or people going for top schools take that. I say who gives a fuck how you do on those tests. Uni, if u go, is only what u make it. My brother didnt go to college and he self-employed and earning. How u live, right?
