50 CENT , KENNETH SUPREME MCGRIFF TIDBITS

 

Rapper 50 Cent is teaming with Pocket Books for a new volume called "The 50th Law." The book will be a collaborative project by 50 and strategy guru Robert Greene, whose "The 48 Laws of Power" is a popular pick in the hip-hop world. "50 Cent and Robert Greene will focus on how 'The 48 Laws of Power' have helped a new generation of successful power brokers achieve today's version of the American Dream," Pocket Books Executive Vice President and Publisher Louise Burke said. The book will also highlight 50's background and his ability to reconcile his street appeal with corporate savvy. " 'The 50th Law' will capture and create a visible parallel between street life and corporate America standard and structure," 50 said in a statement. The hardcover book, to be published through MTV/ Pocket Books, is due in February 2008.

 

Kenneth "Supreme" McGriff was found guilty Thursday of murder conspiracy and drug dealing in a federal death-penalty case in which prosecutors said he paid $50,000 to have two rivals killed in 2001. AP reports that McGriff, who has ties to the Inc. label head Irv "Gotti" Lorenzo, looked at supporters and smiled when the verdicts were read. During the trial, the defense said that after a prison sentence for drugs, McGriff began a movie-producing partnership with neighborhood friend Lorenzo. But prosecutors countered that McGriff actually resumed selling drugs and used Lorenzo's label, then known as Murder Inc., to launder more than $1 million in proceeds and that he paid a hit team to kill a little-known rapper named E-Money Bags and another man in retaliation for Bags' shooting and killing one of McGriff's friends. The jury in the case will return on Tuesday to deliberate the death penalty against McGriff, who will face a minimum sentence of life in prison without parole.
