RBL Posse

Short for 'Ruthless By Law', RBL Posse was a westcoast gangsta rap group formed in the early 1990's in the Hunter's Point district of San Francisco. Members of RBL Posse included Black C, Mr. Cee and Hitman, among others. Their debut album "A Lesson to be Learned" came out in the year 1992, followed by "Ruthless By Law" in 1994. In 1996 the group was on the verge of signing to Atlantic Records and finally making it, when Mr. Cee was tragically fatally shot nine times in a driveby shooting on New Years Day 1996. The two remaining members continued making music as the RBL Posse until Hitman too was fatally shot in 2003 at the young age of 24. RBL Posse was officially disbanded after Hitman's death but Black C continues to make music as a solo artist.
