Four men who allegedly used profits from Baltimore's drug trade to try to make a name in the rap music business face rarely used federal racketeering charges that could bring the death penalty, federal authorities announced yesterday as they linked the group to as many as five unsolved city homicides. These include the slaying in March 2002 of an associate of former heavyweight boxing champion Hasim S. Rahman and a woman the man was dating at the time. The group also is charged with a second double killing less than a month later - a crime solved in part with the help of an inadvertent cell phone message.
