Irv Gotti and Ja Rule were close associates of incarcerated drug kingpin Kenneth “Supreme” McGriff.
“Preme is preme,” Gotti said. “The thing with Preme; Preme loves being Preme…Even when he is inside and going through a double life bid, but he still Preme.
Gotti recounts visiting the Queens legend in prison during an interview with Power 105’s “The Breakfast Club.”
“We talk to him. I go visit him,” Gotti said.
But the Murder, Inc. founder also made mention of Chicago Drug kingpin Larry Hoover, the founder of the notorious Gangster Disciples street gang.
“Shout out to Larry Hoover,” Gotti said.
“Shout out to the old man,” Ja Rule added.
McGriff was one of the most feared figures running a criminal empire on the streets of Queens. McGriff served multiple stints in prison, including a 12-year sentence in 1989 for engaging in a Continuing Criminal Enterprise.
He served only seven years for that crime after making parole. McGriff, ultimately, landed back in prison for a life term after a jury found him guilty of murder and drug trafficking.
Larry Hoover, 62, is said to have formed the notorious Gangster Disciples street gang in Chicago in the late 1960s.
The GDs, which formed on the South Side of Chicago, can now be found active nationwide in many major metropolitan cities.
Hoover engaged petty crime as an adolescent, but soon dabbled in major illegal activities, as he got older during the growth of his criminal empire.
Hoover’s ways soon caught up to him after he was sentenced to 150 to 200 years in prison for the murder of drug dealer Williams Young, according to biography.com.
While in prison, Hoover changed the name of his street gang to “Growth and Development.”
Despite professing change for the urban community, Hoover was linked to running an elaborate criminal empire behind bars. He was later indicted and sentenced to serve six life sentences at the United States Penitentiary Administrative Maximum Facility.
