Hey CONCERN, it's spelled Gaspar, mostly I ran with Ricky Dukes, my only child, Chantel's mother was Rene Brown, better known as dirty red, on July 4th 1976 My Partner Ballin Draffen had a shootout on 7th Ave. right in front of what used to be the Shalimar, if you are from that era just google my name Gaspar Vetrano and there is a recent pivture of Al Pinto from BET, Ike Atkinson, who just wrapped up 32 years in the federal joint, Liddy Jones and myself, the picture was taken when Ike LIDDY AND MYSELF WERE INDUCTED INTO THE american gangster museu, or better still you can email me at gasparvetrano@aol.com, or you can go to the library nd get the NY daily news and thepost for June 28, 1984, that was the day the OCTF knocked my door down at my Sutton Place apartment, it's on page two, the reason I am giving out this much info to you is I have done a lot of things in my life but there are two lines I have never crossed, they are LYING or INFORMING, at 66 years old I walg around with three bullets still in my body one is very close to my heart and at my last physical the x-rays show the one near my heart is coming out of the scar tissue, you can also go to myspace or facebook, if you email me I will send you my phone number. Integrity brother , it is all we have
Peace

AkA, that's he $64000 question, I do know that he stll lives in hiding, unlie Frank Lucas who claims he doesn't live in hiding, Frank got buted a short time ago for trying to cash his son's disability check, I ain'tn the loop anymore, I am an old man but this past April when I got inducted into the American Gangster museum I got a chanceto talk to Mark Jacobson, he's the writer for New York magazine who started the whole thing about Lucas and I asked him why he would make a legend out of a guy that put his own five brothers in prison along with his wife and he told me "because Frank was dumb enough to go for it" that same night I told the curator to PLEASE put Nicki and Franks stories in a different room then people who got busted and did their own time, I know I did my own and everyone that was with me did their own and because of all of us standing up we didn't geet LIFE, both Frank and Nicki hurt a lot of people like Dr. Guy Fisher, he is still in and NEVER broke his own code of honor, and that code ain't BS like a lot of people think it is, there were lot of us "old timers" that actually would NOT put another person in the joint because we didn't want to go. But back to your question, I don't know where that rat MFing dude lives but where ever it is I hope he pukes every time he looks in the mirror.

Does anyone know why Pee Wee Kirkland and Freddie Myers fell out? Both had documentaries and neither mention either one in the docs, even though Freddie started out as Pee Wee's lieutenant

Partner, you're right, but we let it happened. I'm not downing nobody for what happened but in 1981 Harlem brownstones were going for $1. seriously. We partied, were leaned in our cars of luxury and all hadda ball. But what we did had no retirement plan so we lived for the day. I don't regret it. I just hate to see people that were made by people with good hearts turn their backs on them when they came home. But so is the way of life. I wish no ill feelings on anyone. Just please be careful out there. The snitches are still on point and doing what snitches do. They have even infiltrated this thread. peace.

Yeah fam, Big Georgie passed I think it was June 6th of last year. The ave,(St Nicholas) had cars triple parked from 138th to 145th. He looked like he was sleeping with the kings. Never seen a person sent home so elegantly. He wore the same robes as Malcolm at his funeral. All came to pay respect to the King...I knew the Fluellen family from 1970 when they lived on seventh avenue. My family lived right at the other side of the third floor apartment building.

hey ole dude, did I ever tell you that that picture everyone is talkin about of cisco in jet mag. It was really newsweek. I had just came home from the Nam and was sleeping on my cosins couch. When he turned the light on. Scared the crap out of me. You know how that was. I actually talked with him while he got dressed for the fight. Royal blue silk suit, white gators white mink coat, and white mink fadora. true story.
