Scotsman.com News - International - Record label laundered drug money, court told
: "A HIP-HOP record producer and his brother were accused by a federal prosecutor yesterday of laundering drug money that was delivered to their offices in shopping bags and a shoe-box.
Irving Lorenzo, the boss of Murder Inc, and his brother Christopher 'laundered money for one of the biggest, baddest, most dangerous drug lords in New York City', the assistant US attorney, Carolyn Pokorny, told a Brooklyn jury during the closing arguments at their racketeering trial.
The government claims Murder Inc - the producer of platinum-selling artists such as Ashanti and Ja Rule - formed a secret alliance with Kenneth 'Supreme' McGriff.
McGriff allegedly funnelled more than £800,000 in drug money through Murder Inc, in return for serving as the Lorenzos' protector and enforcer."
