Montana Dry Cleaners

From “Ghetto Qu'ran (Forgive Me)” by 50 Cent

Lyrics

Lord knows, Tommy had Laurelton sold
Helicopters, Rolls Royces with Louis Vuitton interior
Might sound like I'm fantasizing, but son I'm dead serious
Montana was no dummy, brought business to wash the money
Had money out the ass, he politic like the Asian
Feds couldn't catch him dirty, so settled for tax evasion

About

Thomas “Tony Montana” Mickens was the kind of guy rappers pretend to be — a flashy 1980’s Queens drug dealer who did baller things like buy a $110,000 yacht in cash. He also brazenly started a bunch of businesses under his “Montana” alias, and this was the location of Montana Dry Cleaners, which had its own after-hours activities

50 Cent captured this era of Queens street life in his song “Ghetto Qu'ran”. In the picture are other dons of the era, Lorenzo “Fat Cat” Nichols, Kenneth “Supreme” McGriff, and James “Wall” Corley
