Terrence "Big Chef" Jones and 20 others were arrested last week, bringing an end to a 16-month narcotics investigation of the Bushwick Houses, called "Operation Bushwhack". Big Chef referred to himself as "the 500-gram cooker" and the "bag twister" in his lyrics, and listed the names of his drug-dealing crew in the liner notes of his CD.
"It's like the confessions of a rap star/drug dealer," Inspector Steven Powers of the Brooklyn North Narcotics Unit told The NY Daily News. "We looked at it and said, 'Wow, he's giving a lot of details about his life".
