He was convinced that the FBI was trying to kill him and more than eight years after his death, ODB’s 94-page FBI file has become available for the public view.
The file reveals the organization was highly interested in him and the Wu-Tang Clan, supposedly for connections to gunrunning in Steubenville, Ohio. The document also described the Clan as being heavily involved with the sale of drugs, illegal weapons, murder and other violent crimes.
But according to primary reports, the rapper passed away due to an accidental drug overdose in 2004.
“He’s been telling friends that somebody is trying to kill him,” said ODB’s cousin Frederick Cuffie in a 1999 interview with the Village Voice.
After the killing of Tupac Shakur in ’96, Cuffie said that ODB began going by “Osirus” and behaving oddly.
“He’s been telling me that the CIA and the FBI wants to get him for some reason,” he said.
