I've Seen COCAINE COWBOYS II: Hustlin' with the Godmother

Charles Cosby: Domesticated Gangsta

During the time Bill Cosby was being paid millions of dollars to play the role of Heathcliff Huxtable, Charles Cosby was a genuine drug lord making millions by selling crack cocaine within his community of Oakland, California.

This documentary is about the rise and fall of a young small time crack dealer, who eventually became a major distributor of illegal drugs to America with the help of a chance meeting with Colombian Queen Pin, Griselda Blanco, aka- The Godmother, aka- The Black Widow. Despite Blanco being more than 20 years Cosby's senior, the relationship with Griselda became physical. At that point, you could honestly say that Charles Cosby became a Godmother fucker.

At first, I wasn't going to watch this hour and a half long movie, but I found Charles Cosby's impressive story telling ability to be just as engaging as Morgan Freeman's narrative skills. Hell, I'll even rank Cosby up there with Charlie Murphy, from The Chappelle Show.

I found this film worthwhile and interesting. It felt like I was watching quality reality TV (<--oxymoron?). If you wish to preview the first 10 minutes of this movie, you can do so HERE .
