Mike Tyson accused of putting out contract on Brooklyn drug gang

Okay the creepy shit about this story is that 50 would go on to buy Mike Tyson’s Mega-mansion in Conneticut knowing that Tyson was best friends with the guy who supposedly shot him. Some type of twisted revenge?

Mike Tyson chipped in $50,000 for a contract to kill members of a Brooklyn drug gang that murdered his bodyguard in 2000, a government witness testified Thursday.

A former member of the violent Cash Money Brothers gang said the ex-heavyweight champ and another thug, Muhammad Nur, who was also close with the victim, each contributed $50,000 to the bounty on the heads of CMB leaders Damion (World) Hardy and Edward (Taz) Cooke.

“Why would Mike Tyson put a hit out on Taz and World?” asked Assistant U.S. Attorney James Loonam.

“He was close friends with ‘Homicide,'” replied witness Dwayne Meyers, referring to victim Darryl Baum by his nickname.

Tyson dedicated his 38-second whupping of heavyweight Lou Savarese in 2000 to Baum, who was shot dead two weeks earlier.

Baum was suspected of pumping nine bullets into 50 Cent a month before he was killed, and the rapper refers to him in the song “Many Men.”

“‘Cause he got hit like I got hit but he ain’t f—— breathing,” 50 Cent rapped.

The alleged contract was revealed at the trial of Abubakr Raheem, 48, a reputed associate of Hardy, who is charged with participating in two murders.

Hardy controlled the drug trade at the Lafayette Gardens housing project in Bedford Stuyvesant.

His claims to infamy are murder, mayhem and having once dated rap vixen Lil’ Kim.

The gang’s name was lifted from Wesley Snipes’ drug crew in the film “New Jack City.”

  1. BABY BOY U HAVE TO GET YOUR STORY STRAIGHT BEFORE YOU SPIT….THESE WERE TRUE SOLDIERS SHOW YOUR RESPECT BY PUTTING THE TRUTH OUT AND WHY DON’T YOU TRY TO WAIT UNTIL AFTER THE TRIAL….HINT HINT….J-KRAKS

  2. My man. Street knowledge. You impressed me with your knowledge of Damion World Hardy. I’ve been tracking the brother because I believe he might be my brother. Same father. Perhaps? A New York pimp who operated out of Brooklyn by the name of Dollar Bill, or William Hardy. I’ve been trying to find this dude all my life. Independent research lead me to the Hardy Brothers, and I’ve been trying to determine their father’s name for just as long. One rumor was that it’s the same jack that left my mom flat 32 years ago. Blood.
