[Video] Rock The Bells: Wu Tang Clan & Hologram ODB


The Wu Tang Clan got everyone together, almost. RZA, U-God and the crew were able to bring Ol Dirty Bastard back from the dead to perform as a hologram at Rock The Bells in San Bernadino, California but apparently didn’t have the same luck with the living as Ghostface Killah and Raekwon were both absent, as they were last week when Wu Tang performed at North Coast Music Festival in Chicago. Ol Dirty, it turned out, has perfect timing even as a light fixture, bridging the gap between while Wu Tang DJ Mathematics rebooted his computer after it crashed in the middle of the performance. For his part, Method Man was unhappy with the set and took the chance to send a jab to the missing Wu members. “I wish Raekwon the Chef and Ghostface could have been here to see this shit. Also, regardless of the technical difficulties, y’all showed a lot of heart by sticking around and I respect y’all for that. I promise you, you will never see a fuckin’ show like this again from us. Trust me.” The performance wasn’t the first by a hologram for the festival, Eazy-E’s likeness made an appearance with Bone Thugs n’ Harmony to open Rock The Bells. Video below.
