Kenneth ‘Supreme’ McGriff Charged With Another Attempted Murder

Kenneth "Supreme"

McGriff has been hit with a new attempted-murder charge, as the government prepares

for their upcoming trial against the convicted Queens, New York, drug lord.

McGriff is accused

of conspiring to murder a woman identified only as "Jane Doe" after

he learned she was pregnant with his unborn child.

Prosecutors, who

motioned to move McGriff’s impending trial to May 1, claim that he and associates

attempted to murder the woman around June 1994, in New York.

"The charge

is related to an incident in which Supreme is alleged to have attempted to murder

a woman who was pregnant with his child because she refused to have an abortion,"

writer Ethan Brown told AllHipHop.com. "The dark outlook for Supreme–he

is also charged with two murders–just got darker."

Brown is the author

of Queens Reigns Supreme:

Fat Cat, 50 Cent, and the Rise of the Hip Hop Hustler, which details

the relationship between the streets of Queens and the Hip-Hop industry.

McGriff has also

been charged with murdering aspiring Queens rapper Eric "E Money Bags"

Smith and an associate of E Money Bags named Troy Singleton.

50 Cent and The

Inc.’s star artist Ja Rule were involved in several violent altercations before

50 Cent was shot in Queens in May 2000. The government plans to introduce into

the trial evidence linking McGriff to the shooting.

Prosecutors unsuccessfully

attempted to combine McGriff’s trial with the federal money laundering trial

of The Inc.’s Irv and Christopher Lorenzo. In December 2005, a jury acquitted

the brothers of all charges.
