ODB’s Widow Has Some Concerns About That Hologram

Rapper Ol' Dirty Bastard (aka. ODB & Dirt McGirt) attends a news conference to announce his signing with Roc-A-Fella Records at the Rihga Royal Hotel May 1, 2003 in New York City. The controversial rapper was released from prison earlier today after being incarcerated for over two years.

Hologram enthusiasts the world over were delighted to learn that this year's Rock the Bells would feature two ghost rappers — Eazy-E and Ol' Dirty Bastard (in reunion with Bone Thugs and Wu-Tang). Except ODB's widow was apparently not consulted, and she has now filed a cease and desist. "I am looking forward to talking to Wu-Tang about this matter and coming up with a positive solution in order to bring my husband to the stage once again,” it reads. Okay, but does "positive solution" mean "hologram"?
