2. Howard "Pappy" Mason and his gang, The Bebos
Nas: "Bebo posse reincarnated through me, probably" ("A Queens Story")
50: "Po-po under pressure too, they know what they facing/Go against crews like Bebo and killers like Pappy Mason"
Mason is a particularly iconic figure for Nas, having been mentioned on at least four songs throughout the rapper's career. Pappy was the muscle behind Nichols' gang, and enterprisingly set up his own drug smuggling gang as well called the Bebos, which was separate from Cat's organization. He was responsible for the notorious 1989 murder of police officer Edward Byrne, which was the act that increased law enforcement heat to the point where he was soon caught and sentenced to life.
