WorldStarHipHop Founder Dead at 43
CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) - James Triplett had his customers lined up around the corner in broad daylight, the feds say. Not for concert tickets. Not for iPhones. For heroin. Now 42 people are facing state or federal drug charges for their alleged roles in supplying and distributing heroin around West Grenshaw and Independence in the North Lawndale neighborhood on the West Side, the Chicago Sun-Times is reporting. Among them is the 33-year-old Triplett, also known as “Trell,” who authorities said controlled the drug market in the area.
