Vivian Blake, Murderous Coke Don

Vivian Blake—founder of the Shower Posse, the Jamaican coke-dealing gang that terrorized great swaths of cokey America in the 1980s, and got its name from "showering" people with bullets—died Sunday in Jamaica at age 53. So young!

INTERESTING FACTS IN MEMORY OF VIVIAN BLAKE.

  • Shower Posse was so fucking hardcore they got an episode of American Gangster, even thought they're Jamaican. Now that's hardcore.
  • "Among the most shocking incidents, and the one that put the Shower Posse on the map, came in Miami in November 1984, a massacre of five victims that became known as the Nickel Murders. One of the victims was a pregnant woman who was shot dead while kneeling with her hands folded in prayer." Vivian Blake will always have that to be proud of.
  • The actual name of the current (alleged) Shower Posse boss: Christopher Coke.
