Wu-Tang Rappers

It's been 8 years since Ol' Dirty Bastard died at the age of 35 ... but one of his former Wu-Tang Clan members tells TMZ he refuses to mourn, because ODB "wouldn't want me to."

TMZ spoke with both Raekwon and Ghostface Killah -- who tell us they still think about Dirty all the time ... and have spent the anniversary of his death reflecting on his remarkable life.

"Today I just want to have a day of prayer to let my brother know I am thinking about him," Raekwon tells us ... adding, "This still hits me real hard."

"I will mourn over him today and  think about how much he taught me."

But GhostFace says he's handling things differently ... "I never dwell on the day we lost him, I just celebrate the times I had with him."

"I pray and thank God on this day because he is my angel ... I spent the day just sitting quietly and praying. Dirt wouldnt want us mourning so I don't."

ODB passed away on Nov. 13, 2004 from an accidental drug overdose ... but Ghostface tells us, "I still hear his voice daily ... whether it's his music or memories of things he taught me."

If you're going to do a tribute, at least mention the person's Real Name! DOB isTyrone Jones.


Why THAT pic, TMZ? There were plenty of good ones in your gallery. Are you mocking him? I could say more, but I won't.

For those that dont know who this low life piece of
s h i t is . ODB is the moron who had a camera crew from MTV follow him into a convience store as he showed off the fact that he still cashed a welfare check even though he had real money coming in. Thats about the time I realized my life would be better off not having blacks be a part of it and it has proven to be so right. You cant get burned when you dont play with fire.

It's funny to me how blacks never hesitate to cry racism and when its often unwarranted or when there is no racial component to an issue.

But for whatever reason, their racism is somehow allowed or "justified" and often projected toward people who actually aren't racist. To many blacks, its a-ok to hate whites...they feel they've someone earned the right because some people unrelated to me enslaved their ancestors.two generations ago!
Case in point - the moniker "Ghostface Killah."
Can you just imagine if a white celebrity had a name that basically meant "black person killer?"
The hypocrisy knows know bounds. Sad really.
