That ODB is often described as being ODdead is nothing new under the sun as far as speculation goes, but the autopsy report regarding the circumstances surrounding his untimely demise are finally out, proving once and for all, conclusively, that yes, indeed, it was an OD. And what not. Big Baby Jesus apparently mixed his "peanut butter" with his "chocolate," so to speak (don't you hate it when that happens?), to disastrous effect.

According to Reuters:


"The death of rapper O.D.B. was deemed an accident by the medical examiner, who said Wednesday that he died from the combined effects of cocaine and a prescription painkiller.

"O.D.B., whose legal name was Russell Jones, died at a Manhattan recording studio Nov. 13.

"He died 'as a result of intoxication by the combined effects of cocaine and Tramadol, a prescription painkiller but not a narcotic,' said Ellen Borakove, a spokeswoman for the New York City medical examiner's office.

"'The manner of death is an accident,' she added."
