  • Murder Inc. Drug Laundering Info.

    I dont knwo if thishas been posted yet but...here ya go

    Murder Inc., a rap label partly owned by the world's biggest music company, Universal Music, allegedly was used to launder money for a drug dealer, according to court papers unsealed this week.

    The document, filed in January in Brooklyn federal court by an Internal Revenue Service special agent, alleges that convicted drug dealer Kenneth McGriff, who was released from prison in 1995, has returned to the drug business, laundering his drug profits through Murder Inc., a record label that is home to acts like Ja Rule and Ashanti.

    The affidavit said the label paid McGriff back under aliases. Lawyers for Murder Inc. said the company believes the allegations are unfounded. McGriff's lawyer also called the allegations untrue,

    Murder Inc's partner, Island Def Jam, a division of Vivendi Universal's Universal Music Group, declined comment.

    McGriff, convicted of drug trafficking in 1989 and released about six years later, faces sentencing on June 2 on a parole violation for shooting a gun at a firing range.

    McGriff's lawyer, Robert Simels, said the affidavit contains a lot of allegations, but not enough proof to enable federal authorities to charge McGriff or anybody else.

    Investigators allege that once freed in 1995, McGriff got involved in several high-profile shootings, including the shooting of rapper 50 Cent, who had been feuding with Murder Inc. executives and artists, including Ja Rule.

    The affidavit also states that text messages transmitted on a two-way pager used by McGriff and paid for by Murder Inc, confirms extensive narcotics trafficking and cites evidence linking him to a narcotics-related double homicide.

    'ILLOGICAL LEAP'

    "If the government had any proof, I guess he (McGriff) and the people they claim he was associated with would be charged with criminal conduct," Simels said, adding, "But I don't think there's any evidence."

    "The concept here is that McGriff, after serving time in jail, was somehow in a position to come back in 1995 and partake in criminal activities and provide the seed money to Murder Inc. It's such an illogical leap," said Simels.

    "The reality is Murder Inc's seed money comes from Island Def Jam to the tune of $6 million in start-up funds," he said.

    The affidavit was used in January to justify seizure of bank accounts used by McGriff and associates. The FBI also raided Murder Inc.'s Manhattan offices in January, seizing records and computer drives.

    The probe has also focused on the relationship between McGriff and long-time friend, record producer Irv Gotti, the founder of Murder Inc. Gotti's real name is Irving Lorenzo.

    The affidavit said subpoenaed hotel records show that Murder Inc. paid for McGriff's hotel stays in Texas in late November and December, including $1,200 limousine rides to the Beaumont prison facility where he visited Gerald Miller, an alleged prominent member of McGriff's drug operation.

    The affidavit says Miller is being investigated because guards repeatedly cite a sharp rise in heroin in the prison, coinciding with McGriff's visits.

    The affadavit also says that Murder Inc. used McGriff's reputation for violence and witness intimidation to scare people in the music industry and extort a "prominent music executive from another company."

    Simels maintains that Gotti has earned millions legally by running Murder Inc. and producing records.
