Under McGriff's leadership, the gang's numbers swelled to the hundreds and came to control the Crack cocaine trade in the Baisley Park Houses, the neighborhood where McGriff was raised.

McGriff is alleged to have had a hand in the 2002 murder of Run D.M.C. member Jam Master Jay, and was convicted of ordering the 2001 killing of Mobb Deep affiliate E-Moneybags (real name Eric Smith). Federal authorities also accused him in connection with the attempted murder of 50 Cent. Persistent rumors suggest that McGriff felt 50 Cent had exposed too much of the drug kingpin in Jamaica, Queens and others involved in the drug trade through the lyrics of his song "Ghetto Qu'ran" released in 2000.

The jury deliberated for five days before finding McGriff guilty of murder conspiracy and Drug trafficking. On February 9, 2007, the same jury sentenced McGriff to life in prison. Throughout this case he was defended by a court-appointed attorney because nearly all of his assets had been seized.
