A documentary about the Supreme Team, the notorious Queens, New York criminal ring that was run by Kenneth “Supreme” McGriff and Gerald “Prince” Miller, is being directed by hip-hop superstar and EBONY’s October 2021 cover star Nas. The project’s director also happens to be Peter J. Scalettar.
The Tribeca Festival’s screening of the three-part documentary took place on June 19. On July 8, 2022, it will go live on Showtime’s streaming service, and on July 10, 2022, at 10 p.m., it will have its network debut. E.T.
The docuseries illustrates why that road isn’t always for everyone. America has a long history of using unlawful conduct as the seed for success, from bootlegging to plausible deniability in today’s pharmaceutical sector. In Jamaica, Queens, in the 1980s, the gang had a dramatic rise to prominence as drug lords, which was followed by the demise of their multimillion dollar empire. On many counts of federal racketeering charges, Supreme McGriff was given a life sentence without the possibility of release in 2007.
The documentary features cameos by LL Cool J, Ashanti, Irv Gotti, Joy Reid, and NYC Mayor Eric Adams.
The documentary, produced in association with Mass Appeal and shown on the network under the HIP HIP 50 brand, relates the true tale of the Supreme Team, a legendary Queens, New York criminal organization, as told by Kenneth “Supreme” McGriff and Gerald “Prince” Miller.
Viewers are given access in BEYOND THE HEADLINES to examine the larger cultural dynamics and the influence that this small group from South Jamaica Queens has had on hip hop and social issues through the voices of these two notorious businessmen and the syndicate’s members, as well as Hip Hop legend LL Cool J, New York City Mayor Eric Adams, journalist Joy Reid, singer Ashanti, producer Irv Gotti, and others in the local community, politics, law enforcement, academia, and popular culture.
