View Full Version : Feds Officially Seek Death Penalty Against Kenneth "Supreme" McGriff

03-23-2006, 03:32 PM
The federal government is officially seeking the death penalty against Kenneth "Supreme" McGriff in his upcoming murder and racketeering case.

Prosecutor Roslynn R. Mauskopf filed a death penalty request notice yesterday (March 22) in the case, which charges McGriff with the murder of Queens, New York, rapper Eric "E Money Bags" Smith and Smith's associate, Troy Singleton.

"The defendant [McGriff] possesses a risk of future dangerousness as manifested by a continued pattern of violence, lack of remorse and contemporaneous convictions for multiple murders," Mauskopf said.

McGriff is also facing charges for a drug-related double slaying in Owings Mills, Maryland, where police found $30,000 in cash in a stash house allegedly used by McGriff.

Police also confiscated cocaine, heroin and promotional items from the Crime Partners movie that McGriff allegedly funded with help from Hip-Hop label The Inc.

Last March, prosecutors unsuccessfully attempted to combine The Inc.'s heads Irv and Chris Lorenzo's federal money laundering case with McGriff's, but a judge eventually struck the motion down.

In Dec. 2005, the Lorenzo's were eventually acquitted of laundering over $1 million of McGriff's drug proceeds through The Inc, which is home to top-selling artists Ja Rule, Ashanti and others.

The government accused McGriff of secretly owning and controlling the label, which was distributed by Island Def Jam Music Group.

"Though the feds allege 'substantial planning and premeditation' on Supreme's part in the murders of Troy Singleton and Eric 'E Money Bags' Smith it's still a shock that they are seeking the death penalty," Ethan Brown told AllHipHop.com. "In law enforcement circles, these kind of targeted killings are often regarded as less worthy of a death penalty authorization than murders in which victims are tortured or maimed."

Brown authored the best-selling book, Queens Reigns Supreme: Fat Cat, 50 Cent, and the Rise of the Hip Hop Hustler, a detailed look into McGriff's drug dealing crew, other Queens drug dealers and their connection to the Hip-Hop industry.

Last December, prosecutors announced that during McGriff's trial, they would introduce evidence that he also ordered the May 2000 shooting of 50 Cent, who used the shooting incident to help catapult himself to fame.

The introduction of 50 Cent's shooting means that the rapper may be subpoenaed to testify in court against McGriff, with whom he has publicly feuded.

McGriff is also accused of taking surveillance of E Money Bags and having the rapper gunned down in his SUV in July 2001. The government accuses McGriff of ordering E Money Bags' murder to avenge the murder of a friend, Colbert "Black Just" Johnson.

Last week, McGriff was charged with a new attempted murder, for allegedly plotting to kill a woman that was pregnant with his child because she refused to have an abortion. Prosecutors also motioned to move McGriff's impending trial to May 1.

In 50 Cent's movie Get Rich or Die Tryin', the character of "Majestic" is loosely based on McGriff.

All we ever hear about is OH Preme murdered E Money Baggs, that shit was old news. That guy was soft & yet he set up Black Jus, He deserved to die

I fucking hate people refering to that bitch. That murder & all the rest are all justified.
As for the Death Sentence Preme's gonna walk.

03-29-2006, 12:30 AM
Supreme is true gangsta even though he might kill innocent people(including 50snitch)
If he dies, who knows what his followers will do???
they might kill some people(G-unit included)

Preme has never ever killed an innocent persion ever.

He's never killed anyone. Just cause other people kill people for him doesn't mean he killed them

he only one he killed was former Pac friend turend fo & snitch Stretch & that was cause he was wareing a wire & taped Preme doing a deal, gave it to the police & the police turned it over to Preme.

He also killed someone infront of everyone in time square & no-one snitched on him even though there were hundreds of witnesses

Besides no-one's innocent.

Everyone I named were all snitches. E Money Baggs was the worst kind.

Jam Master Jay was doing deals, got caught, was forced to ware a wire, crooked cops turned him into Preme, Preme set up a drug deal, the cops arived on time & Preme's boys shot Jam Master Jay.

So Preme has never ever killed anyone innocent. He's not the killer, he works with killers.

Preme deseves to be free cause he fed everyone in the ghetto.

He gave people homes when Donald Trump evicted everyone that lived in the project that latter became his stupid 5 star hotel

03-29-2006, 03:27 PM
Some respect for the dead, please ^^

03-29-2006, 06:18 PM
none of them niggas deserve respect. They killed theirselfs when they decided to snitch

It's their fault, They did it to themselfs.

They should of testified & then gone into witness protection program

That way they would have been saved. The fact that they thought being a CW means they deserved to die.

Everyone knows that Preme has cops on the force. Any attempts to snitch on Preme will be reported to Preme.

He's not John Gotti. He's Preme. He elected a mayor for fucking sacks. A republican mayor. He really found a polition. Exposed him to the lavish thug life & got him elected.

You find one other polition besides JFK who was elected by a Don.

Shit with Gulianni in power Preme could have done anything & gotten away with it.

The only reasion their after them now is cause Gulianni isn't in office.

Why bless snitches they killed themselves by snitching

03-29-2006, 06:21 PM
E Money Bags" Smith, Troy Outlaw, Stretch, Lefty, Jazz, Pretty Tony, Lance, Head Lou, Mel son & JMJ all did it to themselves.

So fuck Em all. I've acctually pissed on Troy, Stretch & E Money's grave.

They were bitches who tried to be thug snitches. Donnie Brascoes & shit.

03-29-2006, 06:32 PM
Danm.. thats crazi... ima always hold it down for Surpreme tho..

03-29-2006, 08:02 PM
I respect people who didn't deserve to die.

Black Jus - He was killed unproffesionally. People new E Money was gonna die for snitching so he thought haveing him killed would save his life.

Freaky Tah - He recorded two albums, One for Lost Boys in his Busta, hype voice, one for Irv Gotti's original label Blunt Recordings IT's sad.

Yaki Kadafi - Pac's other general next to Fatal, The only reasion he's not edited off Pac's shit is cause he's dead. He left The Lawz with Fatal. He was killed because he was in the back seat of Pac's vehical when Pac was killed. He new who the killer was.

Daryl "Homo AKA Homo-Cyde" Baum he did a good thing helping them two other shoot 50. He only died cause he was sleeping with a mobsters daughtor

Gangsta Flip, Killa Black, Blood Shed, Slice, Big L & others.

So, is Tupac still alive? I heard he was dead, may be just a rumour.

03-30-2006, 12:13 PM
Yeah he's dead.

He had unfinished buisness

He signed tones of people to his label including Boot Camp Click, Outlawz, Jersey Mob, The Youth, Luniz, Nutt-So, Dru Down, Candyman 187, THa Havenotz & many more.

everyone got dropped since they weren't signed to Death Row.

He had plans to record with Yukmouth, Dru Down, The Youth & JT The Bigga Figga

He only did three songs with his newest Outlaw at the time Gonzoe. Yukmouth was Pac's homie. He was in Jail so they had unfinished buiness.

He wanted Still I Rise, Makaveli & One Nation to be realest the way he wanted it, Not the remix versions of Makaveli & Still I Rise.

He was gonna release a Hussein Fatal & Kadafi album called Fatal & Felony.

He was gonna release a Outlaw albm, Youth album, Nutt-So album, B.C.C. album, Jersy Mob album & the second Luniz album that was never released.

IF Pac faked his death he'd be on a private island with his homies & one of those homies would'have outted him.

He wouldn't want his crack head mom & Eminem spit on his grave.

They'ed be new recordings. Not just remixes & un-heard tracks, New shit, Shit about 50 Cent, Eminem, Mobb Deep, E Money Baggs, G-Unit & more.

So yes he's dead. the Autopsy photo was a fake made to prove his death.

Afina released it to convice everyone.

Yes he's dead. If he was alive that would mean he'd given up all his friends, Family & legacy

That would make him the biggest bitch in the world & Pac's not a bitch

Pac wanted to diss Snoop Dogg for saying he wanted to record with Biggie.

Pac wanted to Steal Bad Azz from Snoop. He wanted to record with MC Shan, Rakim & Mic Geronimo so no he's not alive.

It's a fact that he's dead. He's not no bitch or anything.

All his fake alive footage is so corny it's bullshit.
