(Nigga, u guilty)
Donnell Nichols (not pictured), a former employee of the Murder Inc. record label, testified in court last Thursday that he saw drug money delivered to Murder Inc. in plastic shopping bags and shoeboxes and Ashanti CDs.
Well not the Ashanti CDs but that would explain how she sells so many damn CDs.
He was then brutally cross-examined by defense attorney Gerald Shargel, who attempted to portray Nichols as an unpaid, lying gopher with an Internet pornography addiction, spelling problems and a history of homelessness.
Defense lawyers don't play around.
He was given thousands of fake dollars and told to fit them into a shoebox in a resurrection of Johnnie Cochran's "If it does not fit, you must acquit" shtick.
I don't know a damn thing about the character of this Nichols character but I know when you name your label "Murder Inc.," yourself "Irv Gotti," and your recording studio "The Crack House" and somehow mysteriously find yourself on trial for laundering money for a crack dealer you should probably be acquitted. At least on stupidity, if nothing else.
Donnell Nichols, for your brave testimony in the face of brutal personal attacks and more importantly, your helping get Irv Gotti into prison and Ja Rule out of music (at least for a little while), we here at Start Snitching give award you the Snitch of the Week.
