Ol' Dirty B*****d's son, Boy Jones, says touring with the Wu Tang Clan is like "going to school".

The late rapper's 21-year-old son is touring in the US with the groundbreaking rap crew - of which his father was a founding member, up until his untimely death in 2004 - and said he's learning much from appearing with his peers.

He told MTV: "It's like going to school for the first time and you're really scared, but you have teachers who really teach you.

"You can't know anything without somebody giving it to you. They give it to me real. They don't tell it to me fake. I might break a few rules and they put me in check. They teach me."

One of the rap cartel's main members, Method Man, has given praise to the upcoming rapper, saying he knows his family are proud of him.

Method man said: "I love Boy Jones. His grandmother is here, Dirty's mother. I know she's looking up and she's proud of him. I'm proud of him, too."

Raekwon the Chef - also a member of the Clan - has meanwhile tipped Jones, who also refers to himself as young Dirty B*****d, to inherit his father's rap style and status.

He said: "He looks just like him. Scrappy Doo to the fullest. Dirty was Scooby and his son is Scrappy all the way.

"He looks just like his father. When I tell you he's got his father's style down pat, am I lying? Nope. He's his father to the maximum. When I see him, I see his father."

Boy Jones is working on his debut mix tape now.
