Based on the life of drug-kingpin-turned-informant, Frank Lucas, who grew up in segregated North Carolina where he watched as his cousin was shot by the Klan for looking at a white girl. He eventually made his way to Harlem where he became a heroin kingpin by traveling to Asia’s Golden Triangle to make connections, shipping heroin back to the US in the coffins of soldiers killed in Vietnam. He soon made upwards of one million dollars a day in drug sales. Lucas was shadowed by lawman, Richie Roberts, who finally helped bring the kingpin to justice. The two then worked together to expose the crooked cops and foreign nationals who made importing heroin so easy.

Jason’s mother reveals that the baby’s name is Lola Iolani Momoa. The middle name means royal hawk, and was chosen as there were hawks flying around [overhead] during the birth. The baby has ‘long legs, lots of black hair, and her lips are the perfect shape.’
UPDATE: Here is a picture of their daughter…
SIMMONE Jade MacKinnon, star of McLeod’s Daughters, has been rocked by news the man she was set to marry has allegedly fathered a child with former Cosby Show actress, Lisa Bonet.
MacKinnon, a Gold Logie nominee, was due to marry actor Jason Momoa this year, but shocked friends and colleagues when the pair ended their affair abruptly last December.
The couple, who were together for seven years, were planning to wed in Hawaii after Jason proposed in 2004.
But news of Bonet’s pregnancy has now raised eyebrows as to why Momoa may have called off his relationship with the Aussie TV star last year.
Bonet, 39, has been snapped strolling through flea markets in Pasadena, California looking heavily pregnant.
MacKinnon, who met Momoa on the set of Baywatch in 1999, told Confidential she was “upset” by news of Bonet’s pregnancy.
“Honestly, it’s a shock and of course this news has been upsetting,” she said.
“But I have moved on and I am very happy and enjoying a great relationship with someone else.”
Momoa’s love child will be Bonet’s third. She has a daughter Zoe to singer Lenny Kravitz and a son Desikacher, to a Los Angeles yoga instructor Brian Kest.
MacKinnon is believed to have financially supported Momoa during their relationship until he got a full-time role on a US soap in 2004.

Michael Vick’s lawyer said the NFL star will plead guilty to federal dogfighting conspiracy charges, putting the Atlantic Falcons quarterback’s career in jeopardy and leaving him subject to a possible prison term.
The offense is punishable by up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine, although federal sentencing guidelines most likely would call for less.
“After consulting with his family over the weekend, Michael Vick asked that I announce today that he has reached an agreement with federal prosecutors regarding the charges pending against him,” lead defense attorney Billy Martin of Washington, D.C., said in a statement.
“Mr. Vick has agreed to enter a plea of guilty to those charges and to accept full responsibility for his actions and the mistakes he has made. Michael wishes to apologize again to everyone who has been hurt by this matter.”
Vick’s plea hearing will be Aug. 27, Martin said.
