Meet Wu-Tang Clan’s newest member: Barson Unique Jones (or to put it another way: ODB’s son). Young Dirty Bastard – aka Boy Jones – has taken on his father’s role among the rugged, spartan beats of the legendary NYC rap crew. Thus far, his public appearances have been constrained to a hyper appearance at last year’s US Rock The Bells hip hop tour and an appearance on the mix album, ‘Wu Tang vs Shaolin Masters’. Today sees the release of his debut mixtape, ‘Food Stamp Celebrity’. From the MySpace preview of opening track ‘Young Dirty Bastard’, he’s very much a chip off his father’s block: gravelly voice, whacked-out ululation and cheeky, oddball lyricism. His dad’d be proud.
