Ol’ Dirty Bastard was a man of lyrical talents during his storied music career. He also was a man who found himself in a string of legal troubles. Seven years after his death, the Wu-Tang Clan member’s FBI files are being disclosed.

In the 94-page file, which was obtained by a man named Rich Jones, who used a Freedom of Information Act request to get access, a look is given into ODB’s troubled life through police reports and detailed accounts of his arrests.

Some of the writeups include shootouts, high bail money and links to murder. On March 12, 1999 — six months before his sophomore LP, ‘N—- Please,’ debuted — ODB, born Russell Tyrone Jones, was charged with being a convicted felon in possession of body armor. He was held on $115,000 bail. In November 1999, the ‘Got Your Money’ rapper was the victim of an in-home robbery, where his jewelry was stolen and he was awakened by a masked man pointing a gun at his face.

Then there are his links to the people who killed a man named Pooh, another named Boo Boo and yet another who calls himself Hoody. While he wasn’t charged with those murders, there was an attempted murder charge he got slapped with when he was involved in a shootout with the NYPD. A Brooklyn, N.Y., Grand Jury did not indite the rhymer.
