Foxy’s Manager and Black Hand Entertainment CEO Chaz Williams to be Featured on BET’s American Gangster
Chaz Williams, the CEO of Queens, NY based Black Hand Entertainment, and manager of Foxy Brown, will be profiled on an upcoming episode of BET’s American Gangster series. Williams is said to have robbed over 60 banks during the 1970’s before he was eventually caught and sentenced to a 95 year prison sentence. During his incarceration, Chaz—or Slim, as he was known on the streets—continued to pull off heists by taking advantage of a prison work release program. After a successful appeal, his sentence was reduced to 15 years. Upon his release, Williams sought out a legal hustle, and eventually founded Black Hand Entertainment, whose roster includes up and coming Queens MCs Grafh and Prinz. In May of 2005, Foxy Brown hired Chaz as her new manager. These days Chaz oversees the day to day operations at Black Hand and has established a prison outreach program to share his story of redemption with prisoners. American Gangster: Chaz Williams airs on Wednesday, November 21 at 10:00 p.m. EST.
