Wu-Tang Clan member Ol' Dirty Bastard has been released from an upstate New York prison.
According to sources Ol' Dirty is being held in a New York area mental facility after he was deemed unsafe to the public.
Fellow Clan members remained optimistic that Ol' Dirty would be released as early as July.
"It's good to have Ol' Dirty closer to us now," GZA told AllHipHop.com. "Now he is almost there, he is almost out for good."
Dreddy Kruger, Artist and Vice President of Wu-Tang Corporation, was equally relieved that Ol' Dirty had almost completed his time.
"I am happy to have the God back with us," Kruger added. "His energy was missed."
Ol' Dirty has been jailed since 2001, when he was arrested for various drug and weapons charges. He has been held since.
