The FBI recently released their file on the late rapper Ol’ Dirty Bastard—of Wu-Tang Clan fame—thanks to the Freedom of Information Act, and it’s a doozy. The FBI alleges the Wu-Tang Clan was connected to various murders, drug deals, the Bloods gang, and other nefarious dealings. Marlow Stern combed through the rapper’s FBI file to reveal the eight most explosive finds.
Ol’ Dirty Bastard, a.k.a. Russell T. Jones, was a founding member of the New York hip-hop supergroup the Wu-Tang Clan, which rose to prominence in the ‘90s. Due to his wacky persona, many arrests, bizarre forays into mainstream music—on the hits “Ghetto Superstar” and the pimp anthem “Got Your Money”—and even an outrageous 1995 MTV special that featured the rapper picking up food stamps in a limo, he was viewed as the first jester of rap, anddescribed as “something of a folk hero” by The New Yorker.
According to a recently released cache of FBI files, he was also—along with members of the Wu-Tang Clan—allegedly “heavily involved in the sale of drugs, illegal guns, weapons possession, murder, carjackings, and other types of violent crimes,” lending credence to their celebrated song, “Wu-Tang Clan Ain’t Nuthing ta Fuck Wit.” The 94-page FBI file, released following a Freedom of Information Act request, says detectives sought the assistance of the FBI and the U.S. Attorney’s Office to attempt to build a case against “the WTC Organization” that included “federal charges and a RICO prosecution.”
