I'm like Paulie in Goodfellas, you can call me the Don
Referring to Paul “Paulie” Cicero from the movie Goodfellas. Paulie was one of the highest ranking mafia members to be seen in the movie.
Paulie was a Caporegime usually shortened to Capo in the Italian mafia. He had control of an entire neighbourhood.
50 cent claims he has an entire neighbourhood under his control as well. A statement proven largely true by numerous sources, including people he has had or currently is beefing with.
It is said that he did not control the entire neighbourhood but he had control over several corners in Southside Jamaica, Queens from approximately 1994 until 1996 when he gave rapping a shot and passed the block on to the next in line.
