On the heels of the Civil Rights Movement and the Black Panther Party came the heroin and crack cocaine epidemics that stirred up pandemonium in Oakland, California. The streets were under siege by powerful and ruthless drug lords like Big Fee, Mick Mo, Lil D, Hollyrock, and Larry P. When other cities in California were gang banging over colors, the notorious hustlers in the Town ran sophisticated drug rings called Machines that generated millions of dollars. Using murder, mayhem, and mob tactics, these vicious drug lords carried automatic weapons and turned entire neighborhoods into fortresses that law enforcement couldn't penetrate. The residents in the communities were in awe at the spectacle of these young black millionaires parading around in their Bentleys, Rolls Royces, and Ferraries, flaunting jewelry fit for a king and wearing mink coats while still in their teens. Journey into the depths with these black godfathers and enter their territories. Witness their meteoric and oftentimes hostile takeovers of one of the United States most dangerous cities.
