Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s FBI File Links Wu-Tang Clan to Extensive Crime

Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s 94-page FBI file was published Wednesday (January 11), Gawker.com reported.

In addition to documenting some of the wilder incidents on the late ODB’s rap sheet, a generous portion of the report is spent connecting the Wu-Tang Clan to various forms of crime including murder, drug sales, illegal guns, weapons possession, money laundering and car jackings. There’s even allegations of Wu-Tang commissioning the Bloods gang to carry out crimes.

Also included in the explosive file is information about the 1997 murder of Robert “Pooh” Johnson, who is described in the police file as a “known Wu-Tang associate,” on Staten Island. The file goes on to state that in 1998 ODB himself was shot in a targeted robbery. That’s two years after ODB was shot and robbed in the projects and after he said a group of armed men burst in his house while he was sleeping and snatched his jewelry.

ODB, real name Russell Jones, died of a drug overdose on Nov. 13, 2004. XXLMag.com reached out to Raekwon, who declined to comment. —Jakinder Singh

    AND THIS TEARS APART THAT THEORY Y’ALL BE PUSHING THAT ALL RAPPERS LIE ABOUT WHAT THEY RAP ABOUT…WHAT’S THE NEXT EXCUSE GOING TO BE…AND MISS ME WITH THE “SELLING POISON TO YOUR OWN” BECAUSE YOU GO TO THE DOCTOR AND THEY GIVE YOU (ACTUALLY YOU BUY IT) MORE HARMFUL THINGS…WHY YOU THINK THEY ASK YOU ABOUT ALLERGIES…

    AND IT COST MORE…

    First of all, this is explosive? I think anyone with half a brain could piece together that half of that stuff is true.

    But here is something you all “Keepin’ it Real” cats should think about….

    The government held a file on the whole Wu based off of who they KNEW, not what they DID (with the exception of ODB). How many of you cats know some shady dudes? Does your friendship with those types of cats mean that you’re guilty of every shady thing they did? I think not…..

    General Public, please use your common sense on this one. F*ck the Feds!

      Real talk. Glad someone said it. Sh*t if we we’re guilty or held accountable for our associations or affiliations; we’d all be locked up or have files on us (sh*t, they just might HAVE files on some of us.). For real tho, everyone has a past…

  • odog

    i dont believe none of it / if they had all this evidence the wu would have been locked up/ RIP odb he was high majority of the time he committed his crimes state charges / feds was wasting time and tax payers money

    Man the Wu is for real cuz i read this FBI file and it says that the Wu’s labels were all fronts so they can make the illegal money look legal. Also, they were giving people rap contracts if they carried out crimes for them. The reason they’re not locked up is cuz the FBI knows that they’re doing this shit but they just have no way of proving it. These niggas are on some mafia shit. Read that shit before you start saying that the Wu aint doing this shit

      EXACTLY… making so much money through LEGIT BUSINESSES AND COMPANYS that the drug money is really untraceable ,so there is no way to prove that they sold drugs(just like what Stringer Bell was about to do off the wire)
