Ol' Dirty Bastard -- A Wanted Man

August 18, 1998 12:00 AM ET

It's three strikes and you're out for Wu-Tang member Ol' Dirty Bastard, a.k.a. Big Baby Jesus.

A Virginia judge issued three arrest warrants for the rapper Thursday -- one for each of the scheduled court dates that he has skipped. Each warrant General District Judge Robert L. Simpson Jr. issued against the 29-year-old charges him with failure to appear in court, a misdemeanor that carries up to a year in jail and a $2,500 fine. ODB's charge -- shoplifting -- carries the same maximum penalty.

ODB is accused of stealing a pair of sneakers from a store in Virginia Beach on July 4, three days after he walked out of a New York hospital with gunshot wounds that he received in an alleged robbery of his house.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
