What's In a Name

Wear it loud and proud. That's our advice for the first son, the first "confirmed" son anyway, of Ol' Dirty Bastard. The iconic rapper — born Russell Tyrone Jones — from Wu-Tang Clan dropped his first son, Barson Unique Jones, 21 years ago. Now, while ODB is gone except for his sounds, YDB (Young Dirty Bastard) is laying down tracks and mixes with dad's old group.

Since one name (two names, really) is never enough, Young Dirty Bastard also performs under the moniker of The Boy Jones, who under no circumstances should be confused with Edward Jones, aka The Boy Jones, who broke into Buckingham Palace to cement a public Robin Hood sort of persona during England's Victorian age. It's just, sorta, a shoutout to rapper pops. "A slave name, but it is what it is ..."
