Murder Inc.  offices raided by the FBI 19 years ago

On this date in 2003, the federal government raided the offices of hip-hop powerhouse Murder Inc. no money laundering for Kenneth “Supreme” McGriff of the legendary Queens Supreme Team.

Even featuring multi-platinum artists like Ja Rule, Ashanti and Lil’ Mo, the Def Jam subsidiary was still being questioned about their ties to McGriff after Gotti financed a film directed by the Supreme Team leader titled partners in crime, which was inspired by the infamous novel by famed author Donald Goines.

After the raid on the offices of Murder Inc. in January 2003 things were never the same for the crew. Gotti spent more than $10 million in legal fees fighting the government, the label was not distributed throughout the process, and the war with a rival rapper from Jamaica, Queens named 50 Cent, had just begun. Nevertheless, the crew dropped the moniker Murder, never waived the white flag, and stood squarely against the government until they were victorious. Greeting!
