The drug game wasn't personal, it was business.
With his buddies AZ and Rich Porter, Alpo rose to become one of New York’s top drug kingpins in the 1980s. This documentary traces the life and career of the young man dubbed the unofficial “Mayor of Harlem.” Business smarts and hard work led to street fame and enormous fortune for the friends, but when flashy Porter neglected to pay money he owed to the more unassuming Alpo, the rift in their partnership led to betrayal, murder and prison.Eagerly anticipated story about the most popular guy in the most trend-setting part of the world…Harlem. As a young boy growing up in Harlem, Alpo and his friends (AZ & Rich Porter) took advantage of a power vacuum in the drug game after the head kingpins from the ’70s were either killed or incarcerated. Through business savvy (offering the lowest drug prices in town), hard work, and charismatic public relations Alpo became the unofficial “Mayor of Harlem”. Watch as ambition turns to greed, which leads to murder.
