Undoubtedly the greatest guitarist in the history of rock and roll, Jimi Hendrix was a prolific talent whose music blew people's minds. When he choked to death on his own vomit at just 27 he left a legacy that can be heard in all the greatest guitarists that succeeded him and a mountain of debt to his heirs. But with no will, a record company stealing from him, decades of family infighting and a number of baby mommas eager for their piece of the pie, the battle for his estate was one of the most expensive in rock and roll history.
The famed ‘90s rapper was a prolific talent and a triple threat - he acted, sang and got in trouble with the law. When he died in a drive by shooting at just 25 he left a legacy that can be heard in every rapper who grew up in the nineties and a 5 million dollar debt to his heirs. He also left hours of unpublished music and a litany of lawsuits longer than a gangsta's rap sheet.
