Locked up for: A string of bank robberies
Complex says: One of the originators of the hyphy movement, Mac Dre is as well known for his crimes as he is for his raps. Not to be confused with the EP of the same name, his album Young Black Brotha featured a number of songs recorded over the phone from jail, as well as his best known song, "2 Hard 4 The Fuckin' Radio." In 2004, Mac Dre was shot to death...but he wouldn't rest in peace, as someone actually stole his tombstone. Classy.
