    COLLATERAL DAMAGE: EP. 6 - THE GRAVEYARD MURDER

    Join hosts Nicole Luciano and Johnny ‘The Greek’ Anagnopoulos, two of the producers of The Dossier, as they break down all things crime and hip-hop, gleaned from their years of investigative work on the topic.
    From the Biggie and Tupac murders, to the twenty plus killings that are tangentially related to Death Row Records, Suge Knight, the Bloods, the East vs. West rivalry, the gangster cops inside the LAPD and much more.
    This week, Niki and Johnny begin the conversation with the latest in current events, specifically a strange YouTube video from everyone's least favorite former head of Death Row security.
    They also look into one of the infamous murders from the Death Row days - the torture and murder of Piru Blood Vence 'V' Buchanan at a Compton graveyard.
    Was this all because of a beef that began inside Death Row Records between Suge Knight and the main suspect, George Williams?
    Included in the conversation is break down of some FBI documents on the case, specifically a long rumored video tape of Buchanan's murder.

    COLLATERAL DAMAGE: EP. 5 - THE EXECUTION OF YAFEU FULA

    Join hosts Nicole Luciano and Johnny ‘The Greek’ Anagnopoulos, two of the producers of The Dossier, as they break down all things crime and hip-hop, gleaned from their years of investigative work on the topic.
    From the Biggie and Tupac murders, to the twenty plus killings that are tangentially related to Death Row Records, Suge Knight, the Bloods, the East vs. West rivalry, the gangster cops inside the LAPD and much more.
    This week, Niki and Johnny start off with a discussion on King Combs' latest release, the ugly video released by CNN of Diddy assaulting former girlfriend Cassie Ventura, as well as his 'apology' video.'
    Then, they focus on this week's case - the murder of Tupac Shakur's half brother Yafeu Fula, aka Yaki Kaddafi.
    Just two months after the killing of Tupac, the only witness to tell Las Vegas police that he could identify one of the suspects is gunned down in Orange, New Jersey.
    Was this really an accident, like fellow Outlaw Napolean claims, or were there more sinister motives at play?

    BAD BOY 4 LIFE EP. 5: THE UPSIDE-DOWN

    BAD BOY 4 LIFE EP. 5: THE UPSIDE-DOWN

    In Stranger things, The Upside-Down is an alternate dimension existing in parallel to the human world. It contains the same locations and infrastructure as the human world, but it is much darker, colder and obscured by an omnipresent fog.

    The Upside Down is devoid of human life, instead being overgrown with ropy, root-like tendrils and biological membranes covering practically every surface. At least one recognizable animal, a humanoid predator, was native to this dimension, while ash-like spores floated in the air. 

    To go into the mainstream media, social media and inner workings of the music business, the story of Sean Combs, is starting to descend into an upside-down dimension, the problem as I see it, is that in today’s ingestion of news or just fodder to throw around at a BBQ, this story not only has it all, but it also has pieces of it that at this point again is unraveling into a game of searching for meaning and truth, something to grasp onto that is close to reality it’s hard.

    To wait for the Vanity Fairs, New York Magazine, the New Yorker or anyone at the NY TIMES to really dig into this is an exercise in futility as far as I can see it, the masses, they want fodder as fast as 50 Cent or Akademics can post, and they want more and more gluttonous hot takes into what exactly is going on, and what will happen next. 

    Was Diddy engaged in satanic rituals, or on Epstein’s Island, adopted a young white teenager, this stuff, is just getting Upside Down.

    BAD BOY 4 LIFE EP. 4: THE VIDEO FROM HELL

    BAD BOY 4 LIFE EP. 4: THE VIDEO FROM HELL

    As the media scrum has gone quiet and the news cycle has moved on from the Homeland Security raids into Diddy’s homes, I am sure many media operations, and gossip hounds are really curious about what is next in this story? What is going to be the next puzzle piece in all of this? 

    I propose a quick game of looking into the uknown future for just a second, and to advocate an exercise in caution on a number of fronts before we ALL assume Diddy’s guilt or innocence. 

    Not many people truly understand the inside baseball of federal prosecutions, and federal investigations and WHY would you as a great majority of us have never found ourslves inside this world at all.

    One thing that I want on the record now is — the media, the Hip-Hop instagram meme machine have all indicted Diddy, and in the era of cancelling careers, legacies, and human beings what should be a cautionary tale is that right now Diddy has not been charged with crimes by any state or federal jurisdiction, and I outside of some vague social media posts, Diddy has been quiet and he is getting great legal advice because right NOW is not the time to talk.

    AND, to define HOW fast things move as I was writing and recording this episode CNN had breaking news and has acquired a piece of surveillance video of Sean Combs, dragging, kicking, punching, and yelling at Cassie Ventura in the hallway of a hotel, to say the least the video is immensely disturbing….

    But cue again social media and the vultures who I imagine will make many memes of Diddy who in the surveillance video is running in the hallway half naked with a white towel, the memes will yet again deflect from the more serious issues at hand, but In America SALACIOUS SELLS, SALACIOUS without thought WINS!

    COLLATERAL DAMAGE: EP. 4 WITH RJ BOND

    Join hosts Nicole Luciano and Johnny ‘The Greek’ Anagnopoulos, two of the producers of The Dossier, as they break down all things crime and hip-hop, gleaned from their years of investigative work on the topic.
    From the Biggie and Tupac murders, to the twenty plus killings that are tangentially related to Death Row Records, Suge Knight, the Bloods, the East vs. West rivalry, the gangster cops inside the LAPD and much more.
    This week Niki and Johnny welcome special guest RJ Bond to Collateral Damage!
    RJ helps our hosts dissect the murder of Bobby Finch in Compton just days after the shooting of Tupac Shakur in Las Vegas.
    Speaking of the shooting in Vegas, RJ gives us his thoughts on the 1996 Compton PD Search Warrant and the '10 days of Hell' that allegedly followed Tupac's murder.
    Finally, they break down another infamous shooting from 1997 - the attempted murder of Long Beach PD officer Brian Watt with a weapon that had a suspicious background.
    **Episode note - in a true life case of the dog eating our homework, Nicole's puppy decided to take a bite out of her computer in the middle of recording this week's episode! Johnny and RJ soldiered on through the last segment, but our co-host with the most will be back in all her glory next week!!

    HIP HOP VS. THE COPS EP. 8: WHAT'S REALLY CHANGED?

    HIP HOP VS. THE COPS EP. 8: WHAT'S REALLY CHANGED?

    In this final episode of this audio series, I needed to come full circle with an idea that I started twenty years ago as a young man, my instincts to uncover a battleground between Hip-Hop music and law enforcement was way ahead of the curve, and at that time with the completion of my documentary film Rap Sheet, I thought I had some answers, and clarity on what I set out to accomplish.
     
    In hindsight, when I look at the landscape between our criminal justice system today, and the many cases of murder, or crime tied to the music of Hip-Hop, I wonder if in those twenty years if nothing has changed, maybe it has gotten worse. There is something bittersweet about that analysis because that would mean within our society, the leaders we have, the intellectuals, and more importantly law enforcement just can’t seem to evolve in anyway. 

    2020 brought what many thought was a monumental cultural shift, or awakening for us, but three years removed the prison industrial complex, the corrupt prosecutors, and the so-called system just seems to labor on, with no concrete and lasting change, I could make a case it is getting worse.

Keep Going

Don, I’ve not missed a single episode. In fact, I’ve repeatedly listened the old episodes over and over again when you was on a hiatus last year. Best investigative journalism in the podcast world!!! Very honest and unbiased like Chuck Philips! Keep going man!!!

Crazy

I was stoked on this pod. But last 3 or 5 eps being ten min long with ten min of ads is lame. Not even worth my time anymore
