A Brooklyn crack kingpin on trial for racketeering and murder wanted former New York Knicks player Al Harrington to bankroll his career as a hip-hop artist rapping about real-life mayhem, a defense lawyer said Monday.
Ronald (Ra Diggs) Herron was hanging with Harrington and rapper Waka Flocka Flame before the feds brought down his alleged career as the leader of a violent drug gang in the Gowanus Houses project.
Harrington appears in several YouTube music videos with Herron — including a party bus scene in which he flashes what appears to be a gang sign, a source told the Daily News.
Herron’s lawyer Robert Soloway attempted to cross-examine former crew member Joseph (JoJo) Garcia on Monday about his connection to the NBA star after the cooperating witness testified about pushing dope and the murder of a rival. New York Daily News
