Lil Kim's Ex-Boyfriend Gets 6 Life Sentences For Multiple Murders And Drug Dealing Mimicking The Movie 'New Jack City'
A bad example of life imitating art has surfaced regarding
Damion Hardy, 40, the drug dealer and ex-boyfriend of rapper Lil
Kim. Hardy, a fan of the 1991 film classic "New
Jack City" tried to become like the lead character Nino
Brown, a murderous drug dealer, who took over an entire
apartment block in New York, using the moniker "Cash Money
Brothers" for his outfit's moniker.

Hardy, who used to live with Kim in her New Jersey mansion,
has been sentenced to six life sentences for drug offenses and
commissioning the murders of dozens of people in New York, via
his "Cash Money Brothers" drug and murder outfit. One of Hardy's
henchmen, Aaron Granton, was also found guilty. Family members
of the deceased slammed Hardy and Granton after the guilty
verdicts were read for robbing them of their loved ones.
While running his drug outfit from the Lafayette Gardens
housing projects in Brooklyn, New York, Hardy ordered the murder
of the brother of the former bodyguard to champion heavyweight
boxer Mike Tyson. Hardy also ordered the murder of a man he
believed disrespected him at a roller skating rink. The
government successfully prosecuted Hardy and Granton on six
murders, but there are believed to be many more.

The U.S. government stated, "CMB maintained control of
Lafayette Gardens through acts of violence that included
near-daily gun battles with rival organizations and numerous
murders. For example, in 1998, Hardy ordered a junior gang
member to shoot and kill Michael Colon because Hardy believed
Colon disrespected and humiliated him at a roller skating rink.
In 1999, while Hardy was incarcerated, his brother Myron was
shot and killed in Lafayette Gardens. Hardy and other CMB
members believed that a rival drug dealer named Ivery “Peanut”
Davis and other members of Davis’s drug organization were
responsible for the murder. While Hardy lay wounded in the
hospital, Damion Hardy, from his prison cell, directed his gang
members to exact revenge and ordered CMB members to murder
Darryl Baum, James Hamilton, Tyrone Baum, and Ivery Davis—each
was murdered by Granton. Davis’s killing also resulted in the
death of an innocent bystander, Johan Camitz."

Often rappers brag about drug dealing and organized crime in
their music, videos and on social networking, but it is a dead
end that has proven very harmful and destructive to many. If you
are dealing drugs, the Judiciary Report implores you to leave
that lifestyle and find an honest living, as you will end up in
terrible situations - either behind bars or dead - if you don't
