Shower Posse Leader Christopher "Dudus" Coke Gets 23 Years In Prison


(AllHipHop News) Jamaican drug Lord Christopher “Dudus” Coke was sentenced to 23 years in federal prison yesterday (June. 8).

Dudus was the infamous leader of The Shower Posse, a Jamaican gang well-known within the urban community.

The Shower Posse was the subject of several specials, including an episode of BET’s “American Gangster.”

Dudus pleaded guilty to one count of racketeering and one count of conspiracy to commit assault with a dangerous weapon, in aid of racketeering.

Federal prosecutors said that Dudus presided over an international drug and weapons trafficking organization, that used a “small army of soldiers” who controlled used violence and intimidation on the streets, for nearly two decades.

“With his conviction, he is no longer able to traffic drugs in the U.S., move guns across our border, or terrorize people, and with today’s sentence, he will now spend a very long time in prison for his crimes,” said Preet Bharara, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York.

Christopher “Dudus” Coke controlled “The Shower Posse” as well as “The Presidential Click,” which was responsible for over 1,400 murders in the United States alone.

In June 2010, over 100 people were killed when authorities attempted to raid Tivoli Gardens in Jamaica to arrest Dudus, in the area he controlled with armed gang members.

After a month-long manhunt, Dudus was finally apprehended in Kingston, disguised as a woman, in a wig and glasses.

Before his death, Shower Posse Vivian Blake called upon Hip-Hop mogul Irv Gotti and director Curtis Scoon, to produce a biopic on the violent gang.

““I spoke with Irv Gotti, [and director] Curtis Scoon. Irv Gotti is a young man where I think he’ll bring the best out in this movie, show the rawness of this movie,”” Blake told AllHipHop.com exclusively in August of 2009. “”This movie’s not just about gangsta and drug dealing, it’s about a culture that nobody has ever seen.”

    Branding the Shower Don as a terrorist of the ppl when he has never ever set foot in America… hell of a thing when your sold out by your soldiers who fled Jamaica to the US and when they’re caught in acts of crime here they decided to sing… it is what it is.. Showa! Showa!

  • TruthSerum

    The term “Shower Posse” will take on a whole new meaning for the next 23 years in this man’s life

    • Just because you’re a faggot doesnt mean that he’s one too

      • TruthSerum

        Lighten up douche, the guy is on his way to prison and he leads a gang called the “Shower Posse”, I find the irony to be amusing, grow a sense of humor

        And for the record being called a faggot by some sensitive idiot I’v never met on the internet aint exactly gonna ruin my day, lol

        I hear ya but what you said WAS kinda gay bro.

  • Dem Jamaicans don’t fucc around.  They almost as bad as them Taliban mofos.

  • mrgibson

    Being a black gangster with status means having a target on your head.  Those white folks don’t want them running anything.  But he also sold poison and destruction to his own people, hope he has a nice time in prison.

      actually he never sold drugs to people he’s mostly guilty for acting as a conduit for Colombian drug cartels trying to ship drugs to the USA… he’s revered by people in Jamaica.. not to say he wasn’t a ruthless man though but his brothers were the ones who did the deeds mostly… but to convict a man for crimes in a country he has never set foot in, is unheard of… 

      • mscampbell

        Correction – he has had 2 previous convictions in the USA — May 1988 and December 1988 in North Carolina.  It was a rumor that he has never set foot in the USA.

  • Jim Beam

    The cops are so racist framing another innocent black man like this. First they did it to Marion Barry, then Jimmy Henchman and now this man. It’s character assassination plain and simple. 

    •  really?  Wht man allows the government to pimp himself out w/o dealin w/ it on some form.. whn Jimmy Henchman was convicted he didnt stand up an give a speech or outcry or throw something at the judges.. he put his head down in contempt an accepted his fate from his decision… Mayb marion barry was different cuz i dont kno much but not Jimmy.. he is as guilty as PAC said back whn.. his last 10 yrs have been squeezed on him bcuz his fate had been catching up to him.. Dont defend a known criminal.. wht did u say about Trayvon Martin..
