Wu-Tang Clan rapper Ol' Dirty Bastard pleaded not guilty to a felony charge of making terrorist threats Tuesday (Dec. 1), according to a courtroom clerk in Compton, Calif.'s Lynwood Municipal Court, where the rapper appeared to answer the charge. ODB is alleged to have threatened to kill the mother of his child, according to police, who say he was caught attempting to scale the security wall of her workplace. A Dec. 18 preliminary hearing has been scheduled in the case, which is expected to be merged with three additional felony charges of making terrorist threats. Those charges stem from a separate arrest in September, when ODB allegedly threatened to kill security guards at the West Hollywood, Calif., nightclub House of Blues.
