Griselda Blanco aka The Godmother

Assassins On Motorcycles Gun Down Griselda Blanco aka “The Godmother”


(AllHipHop News) Griselda Blanco a.k.a. “The Godmother” was gunned down earlier today (September 3) in Medellin, Colombia.

The former drug kingpin was one of the biggest importers of cocaine into the United States in the 1970s and 1980s.

Griselda Blanco was attributed to thousands of murders during the drug wars in Miami in the 1980’s, which were the subject of the critically acclaimed documentary “Cocaine Cowboys.”

According to local reports, assassins on motorcycles unleashed a hail of bullets as Blanco left a butcher shop in the city.

Blanco, 69, was deported to Colombia after spending almost 20 years in prison in the United States, according to the Miami Herald.

Griselda Blanco served the prison time for three murders and drug trafficking.

During her time in prison, three of her four sons were murdered.

The fourth, Michael Corleone Jr. started a Hip-Hop label in Miami.

“My mother always took care of the boys and from there me and my brothers were the head honchos of the family and we told everyone else what it was,” Michael Corleone told AllHipHop.com in 2008. “It was a good upbringing. Christmas came around and I got my first Porsche at six years old.”

Several Hip-Hop artists co-opted The Godmother’s name and fearsome image, including rappers Lil’ Kim and Jacki-O, who beefed over the moniker.

“We started Hip-Hop in Colombia in the mid 80’s and early 90’s,” Corleone said. “We are the fathers of Hip-Hop [in Colombia].”

Check out AllHipHop.com’s interview with Michael Corleone Jr., as well as the Godmother’s former boyfriend Charles Crosby.

    Anyone can be touched. It doesn’t matter who you are or how long you been hiding, you will be touched. I know it’s crazy, but I see the Game as the next shot up rapper. I aint wishing harm but just the way he carry himself = short life. It is what it is.

    • fag

      True indeed, look at Suge Knight, he used to strike fear allover in the 90s during his helm at the zenith of Death Row records, once he lost his flagship artists to either death, defections, lawsuits, he was in and out of the revolving door penal system, and he got punched out in consecutive years between 2008-09, actually only months apart, not even a full calendar year passed after that Compton barber knocked his fat ass out outside of that L.A. club.

      • Real_Boss_Nigga_213

        I do believe the barber was from Phx, it was allstar weekend in Phx,Az where ol’boy is from. He did get ko’d in Cali also, that’s what hap’s to niggas that run out of bread to pay “the goons” who Rolled wit’im at the time… so ya I co-sign what ya saying.

    Now this old whore can join her 3 sons in hell. Adios

  • well damn..20 years in prison, living to see 3 of your 4 sons murdered because of your actions, then shot to death in the street..drug game aint worth it..this bitch reached the pinnacle of that business and look at the tragedy that came with it

    • Lamonte Johnson

      Right and that was years after allegedly retiring. Not to be funny but at least Charles Cosby can go out his home without wondering if someone might blast. But truth is he know as well as I do he still gotta worry. Cuz me and my cousin had this convo when I first seen cocaine cowboys 2 how her and him both can definitely still have enemies out there. And in here case possibly still involved in the black market some way. Its just sad cuz this is a human life that didn’t have to die cuz of that. But quite an interesting tale none the less (no matter how violent the tale may be)

        The Streets don’t stop just, because you have… He can get murked just like her.

  • Jizzah!

    Like I just told my kids. A life like that only leads too dead, jail or both. I only feel bad for all the inncient people the were killed by this monster.

    I remember the watching that movie from a while back when they said that once they sent her back her whereabouts would be unknown and her life would be in danger. Blanco wasn’t a joke, crazy they just now found her.

    i bet officer ricky knows her

    • True!

    • therealest1

      Like William Roberts said in Hustlin’, “I know Pablo, Noriega, the real Noriega, He owe me a hundred favors”. I’m sure his fat ass ran into her while he was employed in the Florida penal system. Its surprising his fat ass didn’t name check and snitch on her in a song.

  • water_ur_seeds

    oh schitt, they finally caught her… i remember seeing her on cocaine cowboys, she was the main person, bigger then pablo and all them…

    • Tom

      not bigger than Pablo

      • Actually, she was, as the rumor goes.

      • water_ur_seeds

        yeah she was, go watch the cocaine cowboys

      • Real_Boss_Nigga_213

        Do you know your history at all or just riding Pablo’s dick?!? He used to work for her & rub her statue for good luck in Miami everytime he came by!! At that time the “Ochoa Brrothers” ran ALL THE COKE BIZ!!!!RMAO And “she” NEVER took orders from Pablo, watch Cocain Cowboys 1 or 2 OR read up on it cause ya sound lame not knowing how crazy this broad was AND a boss!!!! Who you think MADE the Cocain Cowboy wars pop, Pablo?!?GTFOH!!!!

    How surprising…..
    I mean she just used to order murders like pizzas…. When you kill so many and hurt so many people like she did, it’s only a matter of time before the younger generation finds you and try to even the score.

    NB: In Colombia she has always been credited as the “inventor” of the drive-by motorcycle shooting…..Shit just came back…

  • Dude said hip hop started in Columbia.Word?

    • Choppaliss

      you obviously have a reading problem

    • Tom

      he said his label was the first to bring hip -hop to colombia

    • He’s bugging! It started in Bolivia! : )

  • RichFromBX

    aside from one of her sons using blood many to start a bullsh!t label…not really sure I see why this is hip-hop news…I suppose the only way this relates to hip-hop would be the fools who idolized her to the degree that they themselves beefed over who gets to model themselves after this piece of sh!t…she had everyone and anyone killed who she thought was a “threat” and it didn’t matter if innocent people were caught in the crossfire, children and all…I understand that sometimes situations will drive people to do certain things (I’m guilty of that myself) but I don’t understand the idol worship of people like this as if what she was was something the you strive to be…

  • TitoBandido

    It’s “COLOMBIA”, not Columbia…

    Its not surprising it came back on her. She basically got mad with power, felt invincible, had to show and prove by having people killed. She had so much blood and many bodies on her hand. Perhaps she wouldn’t have had to meet an unwanted death had she just stayed focused on getting money and only had executions carried out for the sake of self defense.

    Her murder is the embodiment of that old saying, “You get what you give”. She sure got killed for all those executions she gave during her years in the drug game. Damn, 3 of her 4 sons got killed, now its her turn.

    I know you shouldn’t comment or talk shit about dead people, but I can give everyone a pass on people ripping on this bitch in death because of the detrimental things she did in her lifetime. She really didn’t do anything positive to garner sympathy for her death.

    I also don’t have any respect for anyone who glorifies or idolizes people like her or Big Meech. Yeah, they got money big and fast, but look at their end results, they got money, but they didn’t get to enjoy it thoroughly at the end of the line being locked up and all, you can’t spend all that money being locked in a cell.

    i wonder how old boy that was phucking her out in OAKLAND feel … niggah prolly wiping sweat beads, doing the george jefferson, and celebrating right now … rest in piss!

  • Smashit

    I know people hated her but gunning down a 69 year old woman is a coward move – I remember reading about her & when she got out of prison & deported she said she knew one day her time was coming but it took a long time for that day & she probably still had something going in Colombia – in the end was it worth it? No one lived her life but her & people still operating like she did – it is what it is & it don’t stop
