George "Boston George" Jung
was known as Boston George. He was famous for being part of the Medellin Cartel and helping Pablo Escobar smuggle plane loads of cocaine into the U.S. That was a big deal because, at the time, Escobar's cartel was responsible for distributing 80% of the world's cocaine -- and about 15 tons of blow reportedly came into the U.S. per day for a weekly haul of $420 million. He served 20 years in prison for running drugs.
He was released in 2014 and passed away in 2021.
Bumpy Johnson became known to Harlemites for his help of cash and gifts to many impoverished blacks in that community. Despite his “control” over organized crime in Harlem, Johnson was frequently in and out of prison. Johnson who had earlier fought against Dutch Shultz and the Mafia was eventually won over by the promise that he would run the Harlem operations in exchange for protection by the Mafia then led by Charles “Lucky” Luciano.
The arrangement lasted for four decades.

It is said that Frank Mathews was richer than the “American Gangster” Frank Lucas, more powerful than the Mafia. He sold heroin and cocaine throughout the eastern United States from 1965 to 1972. He operated in 21 states and supplied drug dealers throughout every region of the country. The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) ranks Matthews as one of the top ten drug traffickers in U.S. history and he is estimated to have had US $20 million in savings. In 1973 he managed to skip bail, dropping off the face of the earth with a staggering, 15 million dollars, never to have been seen again. Over 40 years have now passed since his disappearance and how Mathews managed to evade the law for so long long still remains a mystery.
Pablo Escobar led the Medellin Cartel from the 1970s to the early 1990s. He oversaw each step of cocaine production, from sourcing coca base paste in Andean nations to feeding a booming US market for the drug. He also successfully challenged the State on extradition, showing that extreme violence could force governments to negotiate. Unlike many drug traffickers today, Escobar was not afraid to flaunt his riches. His cartel is estimated to have earned around $420 million in revenue per week during the mid-1980s, and Escobar himself made Forbes' Billionaires list for seven years straight, between 1987 to 1993.
Nino Brown was as the boss of the Cash Money Brothers gang of Harlem, New York City during the 1980s and early 1990s. Brown started his life of crime as a member of a Manhattan gang called L.A. Boyz (standing for Lennox Avenue, not Los Angeles),
where he had to kill a stranger as an initiation.
Rich Porter was a legendary Harlemite
during the War on Drugs in the mid-1980s.

He was murdered on January 3, 1990, at the age of 25.
He was shot several times in the head and chest and the police found $2,239 in his pocket.
