Harlem Drug Lord Alberto ‘Alpo’ Martinez aka ‘Rico’ Released From Federal Prison

Street legend Alberto “Alpo” Martinez has been released from ADX Florence prison, Don Diva Mag reports.

The news was confirmed by Don Diva CEO and well-respected Harlem OG Kevin Chiles who covers the drug underworld and street life in New York City and beyond.

“We were all friends [Chiles, Porter, and Martinez]. Preceding him killing Rich we were all cool on the street. We hung out. We got money,” Chiles said in a statement. “The fact that he told on anyone is not okay for me, and there is nothing to discuss, but even if he didn’t tell, we still wouldn’t be good because he killed Rich. I’m not cool with how that went.”

Alpo is accused of murdering Rich in January 1990.

Alpo has not spoken directly to Chiles yet, but he sent word through a mutual friend in hopes that he could “set the record straight with him.”

Alpo is currently in the federal witness protection program awaiting his identity, The Source reports.

Alpo was portrayed as Rico by Cam’ron in the urban classic flick “Paid In Full.” Alpo, along with Azie “AZ” Faison and Rich Porter,” ran a million-dollar drug empire in Harlem in the 80s.

Alpo was arrested on Nov. 6, 1991 and hit with various drug charges that included murder and conspiracy to commit murder. Alpo couldn’t handle a life sentence or the possibility of a death sentence and later turned informant.

Don Diva reports Alpo’s biggest betrayal was snitching on his shooter Wayne “Silk” Perry. Perry was reportedly sentenced to five consecutive life sentences without parole to serve his time in federal prison. Alpo, for his cooperation, was sentenced to 35 years in prison- under federal witness protection.

    Help me out here anybody…So Alpo is considered an all and out snitch but in the movie Paid in Full it depicts the Azie Faison character snitching Alpo out to the Feds…and if true…then why isn’t Faison also considered a rat?

    • They just made that up for the movie Azie never snitched on anybody. If you watch the alpo story documentary he was caught in DC and was under investigation for murder and hustlin in DC because he knew he was gonna get ran out of Harlem after murdering Rich.

      Azie was given immunity for testifying on the folks that set him up, robbed, and shot him 9 times in his aunt’s apartment. Shortly after that incident, he got out the game. Po did mofos so dirty back in the day, from his hitman, to niggaz he just missed playing in the sandbox with. If I seen that nigga walking around DC, I’d contemplate blowing slim head off my cotdamn self!!!

      Niggaz with no honor are a threat to any, and everybody period.

      That was the only part of the movie that isn’t real. Up until the point Azie sets up Alpo in the movie it’s 100% facts. AZ was out of the game for a minute when Po got arrested and it was mostly the shit he got into in DC that got him caught. They probably just ended it like that to keep the movie short. They would’ve had to have included the whole DC thing which could probably be its own movie to tell the whole story.

    I bet he a dead man walking in the streets of NY and DC !!

  • ChubbyInternetNerd

    Alpo says out of his own mouth (not just in the movie in real life) “they’re still gonna love me in Harlem when I come home”. Yet he’s in witness protection probably living on a farm in North Dakota.
