A broad overview of the Wu Tang Clan

From August 4, 1999, The Wu Tang Clan is an organization from Staten Island that is "heavily involved in the sale of drugs, illegal guns, weapons possession, murder, car jackings, and other types of violent crimes"

Loyal associates of the WTC are were awarded contracts to record "Rap type music."


The FBI was thoughtful enough to censor the names of all other members of the Wu Tang Clan in order to protect their identities.

ODB was involved in a shootout with police on January 15, 1999.

A Brooklyn jury did not "indite [sic]" him.

Two months later, he was arrested for being in possession of body armor.

Convicted felons are not allowed to have that, apparently.


And despite have a possible lead on the suspects, ODB never wanted the incident investigated, fearing that there would be repercussions for the members of his family that still lived in the projects.


In the late '90s, there was apparently a group conspiring to rob various famous rappers.

"The subjects were [allegedly] current or former industry insiders who had banded together to commit the robberies."

This is the oldest crime listed on ODB's New York criminal record. It is from April 1, 1987.

He was charged with petit larceny, resisting arrest, and disorderly conduct. He pled guilty, was charged with a Class A Misdemeanor and received a three-day sentence.
