Description

Former gangster/convict and biker James McDonald, legendary gangster rapper MC Eiht and music insider Norm Steele, bring you "The Gangster Chronicles". The Gangster Chronicles is a weekly long form conversation with everyone from gangsters, police and bank robbers, to rappers, politicians and former drug dealers.

The Gangster Chronicles gives you a glimpse into the world of those that live their lives outside of society's normal parameters, where the risk are high, but the rewards are astronomical. We conversate with the real Tony Montana's of the world, but we don't glorify or sensationalize these lifestyles, we simply examine the circumstances that may have influenced their decisions. Every gangster has a story and they all have a different ending.

Awwww Yeah! We had a conversation with one of our homies that happens to be a major player, the man who put the G in "Gangster" J. Prince. We caught up with J rolling in his Rolls Royce through his native 5th Ward Houston, Tx and had the opportunity to chop up a few things. We talked about his brother, "Sir Rap-A-Lot" who's presently sitting on a 22 year bid and even touched on Birdman to find out if he ever cleared his delinquent payment. J even broke down what it means to get a courtesy call vs an official visit. We also discussed the opiate epidemic that has taken the country by storm and we ask when it became cool to be the fiend and not the dealer? This was not done in the studio, but we managed to get it done so you can hear the game that J. Prince gives on this episode. There are a few echo's here and there, and the sounds not perfect, but I'm sure that you will be inspired by this conversation. Press play and lets get into this G-Sh*t! By the way, make sure you keep it G and go out and vote, Real G's go to the polls!

We had an opportunity to speak with DJ Verrett AKA "Ghost". On February 6, 1990 Ghost was arrested on drug charges at the age of 19, and was sentenced to 19 ½ years of imprisonment. After serving 16 years 10 months and 3 days in some of America’s most notorious federal prisons DJ Verrett was released on November 1, 2006. The day he was released DJ Verrett made the decision to change everything about him. He immediately began to give back to the community by volunteering his time with an organization called “GETTING OUT BY GOING IN” (G.O.G.I) and through this program; he began to work with “At-Risk Youth and Adults” to encourage and influence them not to make the same poor life choices he had made.

"That piece of shit child of yours." What a godforsaken poltroon. Wishing Covid 19 on an innocent infant. After that, he tries to strike the high moral tone? No go. Nobody is lower than he is, if we are to take him at his word. Out of his own mouth he stands condemned. The sooner he is imprisoned for 99 years the better. Living proof that there is no honour among thieves.

yo glasses Malone is one dumb motherfucker. that's what happens when money and fame get to your head , you surround yourself with yes men and start thinking the dumb shit you say is right. he tries too hard to be a rebel and an intellectual but really says some dumb shit.hes music isn't that good anymore so he resorts to saying shit for attention.

Reggie sounds jealous of James. its like James is moving his life forward in a positive way while Reggies life it seems is going down the pan regarding him being in prison. Reggie is so negative. and btw Reggie not all white ppl are racist some of us judge people on their actions and what kind of person they are. Maybe things are different in the UK. Not saying racism doesnt exist but I dont have time for those people on any side of that argument. Good luck to you all stay safe and James you need to come to the UK ! PLEASE
