Frank Lucas American Gangster shirt

Contributed by Step Above Most, Ben Cholok on 11/30/07

The Ridley Scott directed American Gangster was a certified box open smash, grossing a shade under 50 million dollars in its opening weekend. The film tells the story of the legendary Harlem heroin dealer Frank Lucas, played by Denzel Washington, whose sophisticated drug operation during the Vietnam war earned him a reputation of being one of the most dangerous figures in the United States. While the film highlighted Lucas’ life up to his capture, and subsequent early release from prison, his real-life legacy as a kingpin of crime has been marred by controversy and shrouded in mystery.

Now Frank Lucas’ eldest son, rapper Frank Lucas, sits down with Drop to set the record straight about his father and separate the truth from the lies. Along the way, Lucas also touches on his ‘beef’ with Jay-Z, and explains why the world desperately needs to redefine the term ‘Gangster.’

In part 1, Lucas explains the differences between the film and reality, what his father really did, and what the Lucas legacy means to him.

In part 2, Lucas touches on how the world must redefine the term ‘Gangster,’ his beef with Jay-Z, and why his father is not a ’snitch.’

    Frank Lucas was an idiot and a psychopath. He was a cold blooded murder and his selfishness ruined his entire family. He didn’t “out-smart” the mob, the mob could have easily killed him at any point… you have to wonder why they didn’t. Maybe he was paying someone off, huh?
