1. Wu-Tang Clan
The Wu-Tang Clan looks like your average drug dealer gang waiting for some junkies to come begging for more.
Indeed, at least some of its members dealt with the awful job of pushing drugs for a living. Raekwon, in particular, is known for his captivating accounts of the illicit trade with hallucinogens.
However, the relationship between the members of the Wu-Tang Clan and the drug world turned tragic on one occasion. Ol’ Dirty Bastard couldn’t keep his act straight and died following an overdose. The tragedy came after many clashes with the law that did more than to give the group a bad, yet very easily marketable reputation.
Wu-Tang Clan went as far as becoming the target of an FBI manhunt. The rappers became prime suspects in the death of 17-year-old drug dealer Jerome “Boo-Boo” Estrella.
