The release date for "A Son Unique" coincides with the two-year anniversary of ODB's death at a New York recording studio.
Among the tracks confirmed to appear on the album are "Lift Ya Skirt" featuring Missy Elliott, "Intoxicated" featuring Macy Gray and Wu-Tang mates Raekwon and Method Man, "Back in the Air" featuring Ghostface, "Danger Zone" featuring Joe Budden and "Operator" featuring the Clipse and Pharrell.
ODB released two studio albums for Elektra in his lifetime, as well as a third disc, "The Trials and Tribulations of Russell Jones," which D3 cobbled together in 2002 from vocals the rapper recorded after escaping from a court-ordered rehab facility. He eventually spent two years in prison on various charges.
The surviving members of the Wu-Tang Clan regrouped this summer for the Tribute to ODB tour, and after numerous false starts, sources say Method Man and RZA are close to beginning work on tracks intended for a new Wu-Tang studio album.
