A new civil suit filed in a Brooklyn federal
court claims that Murder Inc. wrote checks to Kenneth "Supreme" McGriff
in exchange for money made from drug proceeds.
Authorities are seeking to take all revenue generated
from the film "Crime Partners," claiming the movie was financed by
drug money. The movie was released straight to DVD in March.
Agents claim that "McGriff’s drug cash was
delivered to various video shoots for the ‘Crime Partners’ movie" and that
the money "would be used to pay for various expenses."
The complaint alleges that McGriff and his associates
secretly controlled Murda Management, Crackhouse Studios, Picture Perfect Entertainment
and that the companies were created just to launder drug proceeds and money
made from credit card fraud.
McGriff, 42, is currently in jail in Baltimore
awaiting sentencing for shooting a gun at a firing range, which violated the
terms of his probation.
Gotti nor Murder Inc. representatives can comment
due to the ongoing investigation.
