Irv and Chris Gotti surrendered to the FBI 17 years ago

On this day in 2005, millennial music producer Murder Inc. was pressured by the FBI, therefore, to charge its heads and brothers Irving and Christopher Lorenzo aka the Gotti Brothers with money laundering.

The FBI singled out the Gotti brothers as file operators with criminal ties, alleging that the imprint of Murder Inc. was just a front to launder the proceeds of Kenneth “Supreme” McGriff’s underworld business, The Supreme Team. Following on from the 2003 full-length film produced by McGriff Crime partnerThe Bureau stated that the film’s soundtrack, among other ways of income for Murder Inc., was used to launder the Supreme Team’s drug money and raid the offices of Murder Inc..

The Lorenzo brothers pleaded not guilty in their case against the FBI, spending up to $10 million in legal money in a lawsuit against the government. However, the brothers won, suing the US government and clearing their names, even with the government’s 98% conviction rate.

In an age where rappers are prosecuted AND convicted by the government is almost the norm, the big win for Murder Inc. is a victory for Hip Hop and clearly part of Hip Hop history!
