The Story Of Lorenzo “Fat Cat” Nichols Could Soon Be A Movie

Maybe it was through a rap song. Or it could have been through a documentary. Or, maybe you actually lived through the era. Either way, the name Lorenzo “Fat Cat” Nichols (pictured on the left) is a name you’ve probably heard at one point or another. As one of the most notorious drug kingpins in New York City history, his criminal enterprise mingled heavily with Hip Hop culture and helped spawn the strict Rockefeller Drug Laws.

If funds are raised and the ball truly gets in motion, the story of Fat Cat could soon be on the silver screen. Synergy Media Productions CEO Lily Weinstein has acquired the script from Curtis Scoon, an associate of Nichols. He was also the co-producer of Nichols American Gangster episode.

“Cat’s impact has had a long reaching ripple effect,” Sophie Lily Weinstein told AllHipHop.com. “There isn’t a person in this country who wasn’t impacted by the crack era and the laws put in place, either directly or indirectly through its influence in pop culture/Hip-Hop. ”

Fat Cat is the personification of that era and all it entailed,” continued Weinstein, who graduated from Penn State University where she studied public relations, journalism, and telecommunications.

“It is an important and relevant story that needs to be told. Cat defined an area and era.”

Focusing on Cat’s early life, Scoon hopes this film can do for the black gangster what Goodfellas did for the mob. For now, however, it’s all a waiting game to see if these cinematic dreams become reality. It’s going to be hard to top Paid In Full though. Now that is a classic in every sense of the word.
