Al Capone got involved in crime at a very young age. Many newspapers published at the time labeled him as “Public Enemy No. 1”. Capone garnered his wealth mainly from prostitution, gambling, looting, illegal smuggling of alcohol (bootlegging) and other illegal activities. He created a huge wealth out of these activities and as of 2021, his wealth is estimated to have been $1.3 billion dollars. 

Due to his philanthropic activities, donations and charity, he was viewed as a ‘Modern Robin Hood’ among the public, until the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre in 1929, resulting in the death of 7. The event hugely damaged Al Capone’s public image. Finally, in 1931, Al Capone was convicted and jailed for 11 years, ending his 7-year reign as a crime boss.

Al Capone became a prominent figure in popular media. This also resulted in many books, films, video games etc. being made on him. The gangster also attracted a loyal fanbase to his name due to his habit of flexing wealth. He wasn’t somebody who would go wearing anything on the streets. He gave organized crime and the Mafia the ‘suited and booted’ look. Till date, he is one of the most popular gangsters in history and Sidhu Moosewala’s profile picture is the perfect example of it.
