Alpo bought his bricks here

from Jay Z – La Familia Lyrics on Rap Genius


Alberto “Alpo” Martinez was a Harlem gangster prominent in the 1980’s.

Not coincidentally, Roc-a-Fella Films produced and released a straight to DVD movie depicting a fictionalized version of the lives of Alpo and Rich Porter called Paid In Full

Wayne Perry, mentioned on “Tom Ford,” also worked for Alpo when Alpo came down to DC after murdering Rich Porter.
