Subject: Last Drug Run for Frank Lucas

Written By: LyricBoy on 05/31/19 at 4:24 pm

Legendary heroin importer, wholesaler, and retailer Frank Lucas, who was immortalized in the movie American Gangster, has passed away at the age of 88 from natural causes.

Frank started out his career as chauffeur for old-time, big-time Harlem crime boss Bumpy Johnson. After Bumpy passed away in ‘68, Frank took the helm, and expanded the enterprise to a whole ‘nother level.

Originally sentenced in 1975 to 70 years in the slam for his drug dealings, later he turned rat and was released in 1981.
