He organized a masterful team thus becoming a powerful drug lord often referred to as Calvin Klein the Brooklyn Don. His name echoed up and down the entire east coast, where the distribution of cocaine was lead under his management. In 1988, Bacote was charged with second-degree murder and five counts of possession of a deadly weapon. Ten months later in 1989, he was acquitted of all charges. Two months after the acquittal Bacote, along with associate Mr. Shawn Carter aka Jay -Z, was charged in a Maryland State case for attempted murder, intent to maim, battery, assault, and possession of a deadly weapon. Both of them faced up to 40 years in prison.

Bacote negotiated with the Plaintiff to take full blame, therefore relieving Carter of all pending charges. After being released on bail, pending a trial date, Bacote was in the works towards financing a recording label for rappers Jaz-O and Biz Markie. One of the first acts to be released from the label was Carter also known as Jay-Z. Unfortunately, The label was never established. Unbeknownst to him, Bacote was under a federal investigation that eventually led to a 25-year sentence. His prior 1989 conviction was overturned and dismissed reducing the 25-year sentence to 15 years, of which he served
Bacote’s notorious past is acknowledged and glorified amongst many creditable artist such as Jay-Z, Akon, and French Montana, all of whom have mentioned him in their music. Upon his release in 2004 he was asked to manage Akon who became an international multi-platinum recording artist under his management.

Bacote helped build the Konvict music label and brand. Throughout his journey in the music industry he created an intricate network of high profile relationships. He has since turned over a new leaf in his life and is focused on giving back. The first step in his journey was in 2004 with The Fatherhood Family Engagement Program in which he rebuilt dilapidated homes in South Carolina. In 2012 shortly after getting married, Bacote was invited to speak at a YPO (Young President’s Organization) event in Las Vegas Nevada, hosted by Wendy Day. On February 25, 2014, He self-published a book based on his life, hoping the unmitigated nature would deter those wishing to follow in his past footsteps. The book titled, “Neighborhoods Under Siege” was #1 on Amazon, and #7 on Kindle during the week of its release. He started a media blitz, accomplishing hi-profile interviews with Vlad TV, MTV News, and Complex.com to name a few, highlighting his newfound passion for effecting change by public speaking.

On January 17, 2015, Bacote spoke at Harvard University’s School of Law in accordance to the effects of police brutality on today’s nation. Bacote represented New York and spoke in regards to the death of Eric Garner. The Mayor and Police Chief of Ferguson, Missouri were also in attendance in regards to the death of Michael Brown.
