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.

    Kudos to Chaz for beating the government at its own game by having his original sentenced reduced, and then creating his own entertainment company. Now that’s the black version of the American Dream

    OG Bobby J is an asshole…I’m tired of him and dumbfucks like him misusing the word “glorify” just because someone’s story gets told doesn’t means it’s glorified. The show tries to educate stupid people(OG Bobby J) and rappers who name drop people but don’t know the story of what those people did.

  • geico lizard

    i have to agree with the guys above me because the BET show american gangster doesnt glorify criminals they interview people who know the criminals and also the police. you get to hear both sides of the story so they dont glorify anything. its not like fox news who only shows things from a conservative perspective.

    Man that was amazing. Dam if you hating on him you a dumb ass. Man he smarter than half yall niggas. Whats 15 years for all the shit he did and now got a label and out reach program for kids. This nigga even gave back to the community.

  • Moe

    I don’t understand why Joker’s always talkin about somebody is glorifying something. Just because a person lives an “undesirable lifestyle” to some, does that mean that they don’t deserve the right to tell their story. I mean glorification would be telling only the positive side to a story, right? So, if you getting both sides, WTF is the problem? It’s life.

    Hoe-G “Bobbing for Johnsons” is the new RuPaul.

    He knows nothing. It costs us nothing; pay him no mind.

    Chaz has been feared in New York for a minute. I remember hearing his name dropped on a few of my favorite East Coast songs back in the 90′s. Don’t ask my what the eff Bobby J has done to speak down upon him. At least he’s legit and is doing something positive with his money, even if his flagship artist is locked down at Rikers.

    Why do people continue to make statements like OG Bobby J, that “Hollywood knows how stupid we are,” when Hollywood has always glamorized the gangsters in White America. This country was built on criminal activity, criminal enterprise is the World’s biggest buisness, with over a Trillion Dollars and counting. BET highlights the ups and downs of Black Entreprnurs that took a wrong turn, not some dope fiend alley way goonies with a switch blade ready to rape a white woman, as Hollywood has potraied Blacks in the past.

    This blog appears to get a great deal of visitors. How do you advertise it? It offers a nice individual twist on things. I guess having something authentic or substantial to say is the most important factor.

    I have to say, while checking through 100′s of blogs each week, the theme of this blog is different (for all the right reasons). If you don’t mind me asking, what’s the name of this theme or would it be a custom made affair? It’s significantly better than the themes I use for some of my blogs ;-)
