American Gangster Season 2 Finale

Tonight is the final episode of American Gangster on BET. Already in it’s second season, the Nelson George documentaries are thorough and in my opinion expose the lengths that the government has gone through to keep down an entire race. I’m not justifying anyones wrong doing but watch a few episodes and you will see that most of these guys have a similar tale that led them on their paths to a life of crime.

Tonights episode ends with the story of Kenneth “Supreme” McGriff. whose name can be heard  in endless  hip hop songs from the likes of Queensbridge emcees, Nas, 50 Cent and others.  Most noted for  being  the leader of the Supreme Team, he also had close ties with  the NOI and Murder Inc.
