It’s probably not going to come as much of a surprise that some of the most famous people in the world once engaged in activities that are not exactly savory. In fact, many of the famous faces you see and hear on television and the radio today are former drug dealers. Some of them did it for fun and for profit, and others did it because they felt they had no choice when it came to remove themselves from a difficult lifestyle. Would you believe it if we told you who some of Hollywood’s most famous former drug dealers really are? Some are confirmed and have admitted to it, and others have not commented but their former clients have come forward and started rumors about their drug dealing days.
1. Barack Obama
We cannot confirm this is true, but there are several articles circulating the internet that state that sources have confirmed that our country’s president did a bit of low-key dealing when he was a college student. Rumor has it that he was dealing marijuana and nothing heavier to people around campus, mostly likely to offset the cost of classes, books and so many other college related expenses. We bet a lot of college students do this.
2. 50 Cent
He was such a big time drug dealer before he was famous that he was famously shot 9 times in a deal that went south very quickly. His mother was also a drug dealer in her day, though she was murdered when he was only 8-years-old. He lived with his grandparents and finally turned to dealing when he was in his teens as a way to make ends meet when he was growing up. He dealt for many years before making a move on his music career.
3. Notorious B.I.G.
It should come as no surprise to just about anyone who ever listened to his music either now or back when he was alive. Biggie was very open and honest about his drug-dealing days, not really bothering to keep his way of making money much of a secret. He wasn’t ashamed of the fact that he was dealing for years. He did it, made money and then went on to become a famous rapper and make even more money.
