The Secret Drug Boss of Jamaica
When people think about Jamaica and drugs, they tend to think of weed, Rastafari and reggae music.
The reality is that Jamaica sits in the middle of the cocaine corridor between South America and the US, and the violent gang wars and billions of dollars this trade generates have fundamentally shaped its history.
This violence is inseparable from Jamaica’s politics, creating a uniquely Jamaican kind of gang boss – the Don. And no Don was bigger than Christopher “Dudus” Coke. This is the story of Dudus, the drug lord who became the secret “President” of Jamaica.
