On November 21 at 10:00 PM EST, BET will air a new episode of their hit series American Gangster that focuses on Hip Hop manager Chaz Williams. The Queens, New York-based Williams runs Black Hand Entertainment, a label and marketing company responsible for several works, including 1999’s Black Gangster Soundtrack.
Throughout the 1970s and early 1980s, Williams was considered one of the most prevalent bank-robbers in the northeast region of the country. He served 15 years for his offenses. These days, he is active in troubled youth outreach.
Williams, who was a onetime management affiliate of 50 Cent, has also been associated with Jay-Z, who shouted out the label on “This Life Forever.” Presently, Williams is most commonly in the spotlight for serving as Foxy Brown’s manager, along with Grafh. The union with Brown has reportedly led to Foxy’s own imprint, Black Rose Entertainment, which in conjunction with Black Hand, is releasing a street album, Brooklyn Don Diva in the near future.
Chaz Williams has yet to comment on the BET profile.
