The radical Jewish Defense League plotted to extort money from rappers including Tupac Shakur by threatening them, then offering them protection for a fee, recently released FBI records reveal.

Others who were targets of the plot included Eric Wright aka “EAZY-E” of Ruthless Records, who who died of AIDS, the FBI documents show

The scheme, according to the FBI documents, involved the JDL making death threats to rappers, then offering to provide protection and intervene to make the threat go away. The plot involved the victims and their family being taken to a “safe haven” with gun toting guards, the documents said.  One document said the extortion figure amounted to about $50,000.

It was unclear from the documents how far the plots got. Shakur was murdered in 1996 in Las Vegas.
