Osirus, a new album of Ol' Dirty Bastard material recorded during the six months before his death, is set to hit stores January 4th. The fifteen-track CD, named for one of the late rapper's aliases, will be the debut release from JC Records, the label formed after ODB's death by his mother Cherry Jones and manager Jarred Weisfeld.
The album's first single, "Pop Shots (Wu-Tang)," was produced by Gang Starr's DJ Premier. The record also features guest spots by Kdef (Ghostface Killah), the Mountain Brothers' Chops and Mark Ronson, as well as skits by Rahzel.
Weisfeld suggested the possibility of future ODB CD and DVD releases, saying in a statement, "Dirty's legacy will continue."
ODB, who collapsed and died November 13th in New York City, was also recording his Roc-A-Fella debut, but, according to a label spokesman, there are no current release plans.
