Lil’ Kim’s ex found guilty of ordering six murders
A schizophrenic former drug kingpin – who once dated rapper Lil’ Kim – was found guilty in Brooklyn federal court Wednesday of ordering six murders.
Damion “World” Hardy, who led a drug crew that terrorized the Lafayette Gardens projects in Bedford-Stuyvesant during the late 1990s, was also convicted of drug dealing, attempted murder and kidnapping.
He faces a mandatory life term.
Hardy, who once feuded with former heavyweight champ Mike Tyson over the death of the boxer’s pal, was expressionless as the verdict was read.
He was heavily medicated during the trial to subdue his taste for courtroom rants.
The case dragged on for more than a decade as Hardy’s lawyers argued that the diagnosed schizophrenic wasn’t fit to stand trial. But Judge Frederic Block ruled that Hardy had retained just enough sanity to face a jury.
His co-defendant, prolific triggerman Aaron Granton, was also hit with a long list of guilty verdicts and will spend the rest of his days behind bars.
At trial, prosecutor Soumya Dayananda told jurors that Hardy oversaw a massive narcotics operation and routinely ordered hits on rivals and assorted enemies.
He was done in at trial by the same men he once supervised with an iron fist.
Several of Hardy’s former Cash Money Brothers underlings testified for the prosecution and spewed details of his gory resume to jurors. (NY POST)

Lil Kim Wants Empire Role
The Queen Bee is a big fan of the hip-hop music industry drama and its star Taraji P. Henson - who plays reformed drug pusher and show matriarch Cookie Lyon - thinks a guest appearance from the singer would ''break the Internet''.
Taraji explained how Kim had direct messaged her on Twitter to ask about a guest role after learning she was Cookie's hero.
She added: ''I was like, 'Trust me girl, I'm working on it.' That would break the internet.''
If Kim does get a guest role, she will follow in the footsteps of Courtney Love and Naomi Campbell and Taraji was particularly impressed by the supermodel.
She said: ''She was pretty down-to-earth. I complimented her on her shoes and, two days later, a pair arrived for me. But she didn't tell me where she got that hair from! That's all right Miss Naomi, I understand girl!''
Taraji admits she is stunned by some of the topics covered in the daring drama, which was created by Lee Daniels.
She told Grazia magazine: ''When I read the script I couldn't believe a prime-time network was going to put it on TV.
''When we began filming, Lee would say, 'Oh my God, what are we doing?' And I'd reply, 'I don't know, but I'm glad to be part of it.' ''
