Today is a big day, as I will put in a petition with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to get a historical marker placed at this McDonalds on 29th and Grays Ferry Avenue in South Philadelphia.
This historical marker, if approved, will say:
It was on this spot in 2000 that rapper Ol Dirty Bastard, formerly of the Wu Tang Clan and known for such songs as “Dog Shit”, “Brooklyn Zoo”, and “Give it to ya Raw” was arrested for drug charges. Ol Dirty Bastard, also known as Dirt McGrt, Big Baby Jesus, and Ol Dirty Chinese Restaurant was in the drive-thru when a fan spotted him and turned him into police. ODB passed away in 2004, gone but never forgotten.
