The release of federal court documents has revealed that the FBI investigated the involvement of Wu-Tang Clan members RZA and Raekwon over the deaths of two Staten Island drug dealers in 1999.

 

Defence lawyers in the prosecution of Anthony Christian, accused of having given the order for the killings, allege that witness statements implicating the two rappers were suppressed. Neither were charged for the murder.

 

This is not the first time the group has been embroiled in criminal investigations; in 2012, an FBI report on the groups’ late frontman Ol’ Dirty Bastard linked the group with drug running and illegal gun trade.
