Kenneth "Supreme" McGriff (Right) with associate James "Wall" Corley in better times.
As you may have heard, notorious Queens hustler Kenneth "Supreme" McGriff was sentenced to life in prison yesterday (February 9) for ordering the murders of Troy Singleton and rapper Erick "E Money Bags" Smith. Unfortunatley, I haven’t had the time lately to follow the trial as closely as I would’ve liked to, but I’ve been doing some catching up. Ethan Brown, author of the book Queens Reigns Supreme, has been blogging the trial over at his website, and has the first two posts of a four part series on the trial transcripts up now. Ethan has an intimate understanding of all of the events surrounding the murders, Supreme’s past, and how the whole situation connects to the world of hip-hop, so if you’re looking for some interesting insight on the case, he’s the man to turn to.
