Thread: Wu Tang Clan investigated for weapon trafficking?!?

  1. #1

    Exclamation Wu Tang Clan investigated for weapon trafficking?!?

    The Wu Tang Clan and their associates are being investigated by the FBI for weapon trafficking in Staten Island and their relationship with the Gambino crime family. RZA admitted to being friends with several members of the Gambinos in The Wu-Tang Manual, both before and after his rise to fame.
    In 2000 the Village Voice ran a story about the FBI infiltrating the Wu Tang Clan through a criminal-turned-informant named Michael Caruso who got a job as the personal manager for Ghostface Killah and Cappadonna. Several other members of the group did not like Caruso, however his ties with Ghostface and Cappadonna got him into the inner circles of the Wu. [22]
    Due to Caruso's criminal past he was prohibited by law to associate with felons (which many members of the Clan are) or leave the state of New York, however these restrictions were lifted in return for providing information on the group. The federal government turned their head and allowed Caruso to tour around the country with Wu-Tang as long as he was kicking back info on their involvement in gunrunning and the Gambino crime family.[23]
    Caruso was subsequently fired from all duties regarding The Wu Tang Clan's business when these allegations came to light. RZA forced Cappadonna to fire him as his manager, however Caruso still works with Ghostface and is on his new poker team.[24]
    The report rules out the majority of Wu Tang affiliated performers and focuses on those running the business aspect of the Wu empire, Oli "Power" Grant and Mitchell "Divine" Diggs (RZA's brother) and The RZA himself.
    The issue was recently resurfaced by FOX News in mid-2007 after RZA attended one of Hilary Clinton's parties and donated money to her 2008 campaign. FOX News criticized the fact that Clinton took money from The RZA, claiming it was contradictory due to RZA's felony record, FBI investigation, ties to the Gambino family and his music lyrics.

    Is this Real? Let me explain somethin to you - These niccaz in the Wu aren't jus a Hip Hop group. And if you listen to their lyrics like you should be doin' instead of bobbin' ya headz all the time - you'd know this iz real. The gun traffickin' thing - all Im gonna say iz there are real stories and then there are "stories". Ever since that shit happened in Ohio. The Fox newz thing iz bullshit racist propaganda as usual.

    002, Im not disrespeckin' but some of yawl that are foreign, etc. Need to know that these niccaz ain't nuthin' to fuck wit. It's cool that their style rubs off on you and you wear they gear and all, but that's jus Hip Hop. Read the Wu Manual. These niccaz come from the burial groundz, fo' real. And they've seen shit you could only imagine - positve and negative.

    It's Wu Tang forever... ya heard that "FOX". These niccaz, have literally saved mah life. And you ain't about to bring them down on some new shit. Fuck that - they music iz like a remedy to mah sickness.
