Wu-Tang Clan Members Were Investigated by FBI for Allegedly Ordering 2 Murders

Newly released records show that members of the Wu-Tang Clan were investigated by the FBI for allegedly ordering the murder of two men in 1999, Billboard reports.

The documents stem from a federal trial of two Staten Island drug kingpins, who may have been murdered in retaliation for robbing Wu-Tang founding members RZA and Raekwon’s family members.

The drug kingpins, who are brothers Anthony and Harvey Christian, were found guilty last October of running a major drug-dealing operation.

One of the defendant’s lawyer requested police files related to Wu-Tang Clan’s alleged involvement in the murder of two men.

“These reports seem to suggest someone else was liable for those murders. I’m not suggesting that Wu-Tang committed these crimes. The FBI did,” Anthony Christian’s lawyer Michael Gold told theStaten Island Advance. “What I’m trying to ascertain is their stated belief in an official file that Wu-Tang ordered this homicide.”

The information was shocking.

“A couple of weeks before the Boo Boo [Estellashooting, Uncles (the street name of drug supplier-turned-informant Paul Ford) told Humphreys about a Blood named Boo Boo who just came home from jail,” the filing reads. “He stated that Boo Boo had robbed RZA’s little brother and had also gotten into something with the Christian brothers.”

It continues, “Uncles was talking about Boo Boo and said that he had just come home and robbed RZA’s brother and that they would likely come after him for that. Humphreys believes Uncles was referring to members of Wu Tang.”

93-Page FBI File on Rapper Ol’ Dirty Bastard Released; Allegations Include Violent Crimes

It appears some detectives in New York have been paying attention to their hip hop.

Newly released files on Wu-Tang Clan rapper Ol’ Dirty Bastard reveal a thick FBI profile of the Staten Island, New York MC. ‎”The detectives have documented, in their case files, that the [Wu Tang Clan] is heavily involved in the sale of drugs, illegal guns, weapons possession, murder, car jackings, and other types of violent crimes,” the files say. All of which might more or less be gleaned from listening to a Wu-Tang Clan album or two.

The 93-page file shows more than 15 arrests for the rapper, legally named Russell Tyrone Jones, with charges ranging from resisting arrest to assault, attempted police murder, refusal to pay child support and the illegal possession of body armor, the Guardian newspaper reports. The files connect Jones to at least two specific murders and an involvement with the Bloods street gang.

Rich Jones of the website Gun.io filed a FOIA request for the files, which was responded to within a week.
