According to ODB's ex-manager Jarred Weisfeld, millions in possible profits were lost by the widow rushing a deal.
The widow of rapper Ol' Dirty Bastard hawked his prized final album for a song. So says Weisfeld who claims Icelene Jones quietly signed away the rights to "A Son Unique," the singer's posthumously- released album, and spent the proceeds. "She sold out for peanuts," said Weisfeld, who said he was told the price was as little as $10,000. Weisfeld believed that the album could have brought in millions for ODB's survivors, who include his mother, Cherry Jones, and four baby mamas who bore his children. Familymembers and Weisfeld have squared off in Brooklyn Surrogate Court, for control over what's left of his career earnings. Icelene Jones did not return calls. (New York Post)
Prior to being shelved, the album was given an iTunes release in November 2009.
