"When you left me / a part of my soul got torn," RZA sings in his video for "Gone," dedicated to the memory of Ol' Dirty Bastard and others who died in the past week. He left the video with this note on his Tumblr Wednesday:
Rest in Peace: Heavy D, Joe Frazier and all the fallen soldiers and hip-hop legends we lost.
"Our dead are never dead to us, until we have forgotten them." George Eliot
ODB, a member of the Wu Tang Clan along with RZA, died on Nov. 13, 2004, of a drug overdose. He would have been 43 last Tuesday.
