From humble beginnings to seventh-richest man in the world. Pablo Escobar (aka the King of Cocaine) will forever be known as the Drug Kingpin. Despite being a poor farm boy, Escobar rose to become the leader of the infamous Medellin cartel – a drug organization that became responsible for supplying 80% of the world’s cocaine.
Pablo was born in Rionegro, Colombia in 1949. His mother was a schoolteacher and his father was a farmer.
