ODB: A Son Unique is the new podcast hosted by New York-based photographer and filmmaker Khalik Allah. The podcast takes listeners on a journey into the complicated world of Wu-Tang Clan member Ol' Dirty Bastard.

The first three episodes dropped yesterday (11/8), with two new episodes premiering every Tuesday. According to a press release for the podcast, "ODB: A Son Unique pays homage to a singular rap icon who left an indelible mark on Hip Hop. Host Khalik Allah, who started his career photographing the Wu-Tang Clan, tells the story of ODB from a young prankster growing up in Brooklyn to the formation of the most iconic group in New York Hip-Hop history: Wu-Tang Clan; and the chaotic production of his debut solo album."

ODB: A Son Unique offers an unforgettable story about Black life in America through the lens of a kindred spirit via archival interviews with Popa Wu, who served as a mentor for both Ol' Dirty Bastard and Allah, and new interviews with Buddha Monk, Raekwon, detective Derrick Parker, Ol' Dirty Bastard's brother Ramsey Jones, biographer Jaime Lowe, lawyer Peter Frankel, writer and cultural critic Hanif Abdurraqib and more.

"To me, Ol' Dirty Bastard is a legend and a prophet of Hip Hop," says Allah. "To lend my voice as a host to this podcast has been a true honor and a way of praising the life of one of the most unique geniuses in music. Our lives intersected in many ways, from having mutual friends to both having been enrolled in the curriculum of the Five Percent Nation. Working on this podcast has been a privilege and now I hope the world gains a new perspective on the short but profound life of Ason Unique, also known as the Ol' Dirty Bastard; the Brooklyn emcee stormed the 1998 Grammy stage and said 'Wu-Tang is for the children.'"
