News: FBI Release File On Deceased Wu-Tang Member Ol’ Dirty Bastard


The FBI recently released its file on deceased rapper Ol’ Dirty Bastard. The Wu-Tang Clan rapper passed away in 2004 from a drug overdose, but according to the federal government’s 93-page file, throughout his career, he was “heavily involved” in “murder, car-jackings, and the sale of drugs and illegal guns”.

The document also takes aim at Wu-Tang Clan itself, describing the rap collective as an organized group that accepted members and gave them “record contracts to record rap type music”. But it insinuates that the group used their connections with record companies as a way to launder money obtained from their illegal dealings.

“Numerous recording companies were incorporated along with bank accounts established. This allows legitimate monies to flow into these accounts along with the proceeds from [redacted],” reads the file.

Referring to several crimes including multiple murders in Staten Island, the document also says that the New York City borough’s local authorities at one point even sought out help from the federal government to look into the group.

“The detectives are seeking the assistance of the FBI and US Attorney’s Office to further their case along as to package the numerous crimes committed by the WTC Organization in the form of federal charges and a RICO prosecution,” reads the document.
