Infamous Drug Lord Nicky Barnes Endorses Rudy Giuliani

Video source: Crackspace

Subject of soon-to-be-released movie Mr. Untouchable, infamous harlem drug lord Leroy "Nicky" Barnes, joins Frank Lucas, inspiration for American Gangster via phone to discuss former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani's bid for presidency. The conversation was videotaped and appears on HipHop Crack/CrackSpace.

With Mr. Untouchable coming out Oct. 26 and American Gangster coming out Nov. 2, it's a great time (in the marketing sense) to promote a conversation between the two men. But I'm wondering, why of all things would that conversation be about Giuliani's candidacy for president -- and why would two of New York City's biggest gangsters and drug dealers even want to have that conversation? I'm not sure I can even fathom the answer, but at least you can hear it with your own ears.
