  • IRS Claims McGriff Ordered 50 Cent Shooting

    An affidavit filed by the Internal Revenue Service in the United States Eastern District of New York alleges that Murder Inc. is secretly controlled by Kenneth "Supreme" McGriff, the former head of a Queens, New York drug gang known as "Supreme Team," whom the IRS claims set 50 Cent up to be shot.

    IRS agent Francis Mace stated in the affidavit that when McGriff was released from prison in 1995, he resumed his "criminal activity."

    "McGriff began transporting narcotics from New York to the Baltimore, Maryland area among other locations. Thereafter, in an effort to launder his drug money, McGriff helped found the Murder Inc. record label, utilizing the proceeds from his drug empire," Mace alleges.

    The affidavit states that McGriff's "drug trafficking activities are confirmed by among other things, his lengthy history of narcotics-related offenses, information provided by reliable, confidential informants and text messages transmitted on a two-way pager paid for by Murder Inc."

    Mace said that during his investigation, he found that McGriff has not paid taxes in the past six years and that Murder Inc. nor any other company has filed any documents declaring McGriff an employee. "Simply put, McGriff has no known source of income."

    "In addition, the investigation has revealed McGriff's involvement in several highly publicized shootings and homicides related to the narcotics trafficking and the rap industry. Murder Inc. in turn exploits McGriff's notoriety for business advantage, instilling fear in members of the music industry."

    Mace also charges that McGriff ordered 50 Cent's shooting, because he wrote a song exposing McGriff's criminal activities.

    Mace goes on to say that a confidential witness, known as "CW-1," who knows both McGriff and Gotti, claims that Gotti is merely the public face of Murder Inc and that McGriff is the real power behind the company.

    Irv Gotti cannot comment due to the ongoing investigation, but in an exclusive interview in March, Island/Def Jam Chairman Lyor Cohen denied the ink or Supreme were involved in any wrong doing.

    "Supreme paid his debt to society," Cohen told AllHipHop.com. "He was simply trying to get into business. All of a sudden everybody gets broadsided with this."

    "I know Irv's situation, I know all the details," Cohen continued. "The feds have been investigating this for 4 months. They have every bit of information and I don't think they will find any wrong doing. Irv is not a criminal."
