OL' CHEEKY BASTARD!
Despite warrants for his arrest on both US coasts, the star manages to fit in a song in during his brief appearance in New York...
The star breached a heavy police presence outside the Hammerstein Ballroom, to climb onstage saying: "I can't stay on the stage too long tonight - the cops is after me." He stayed to run through 'Shame On A Nigga'.
According to www.mtv.com, Wu Tang leader RZA introduced ODB, real name Russell Jones, as a surprise guest, adding: "For the first time in three years, you see the whole Wu-Tang Clan onstage tonight."
Aside from the warrant issued by Los Angeles police, ODB is being hunted on separate charges by police in Brooklyn and Queens.
Wearing a distinctive orange parka coat, the star added: "You know, the whole fucking world is after me. Y'all know, I'm still surrounded," he said, before adding that he planned to become "like a bird" and to live on "birdseeds or whatever".
At 12.30am (EST) the police had no record of arresting the rapper.
