Synopsis

Tied as a boy to Mr. Untouchable, heroin kingpin Nicky Barnes, Peter Rollock (also spelled "Rollack") came up in the game, growing up in the Soundview projects of the Bronx. In the midst of the 1980s crack epidemic, Rollock earned his nickname—"Pistol Pete"—after starting his own gang—Sex, Money, Murder (also known as Sex Money Murda, S.M.M. and $.M.M.). He and his underlings incorporated the organization in an effort to launder the drug money, and expanded their operations outside New York. Rollock would ultimately confess to pulling the trigger on many of his rivals, but justice wouldn't stop his killer reputation. Once behind bars, he continued to orchestrate murders. At the age of 25, in order to avoid the death penalty, "Pistol Pete" Rollock accepted a plea bargain of life behind bars in solitary confinement.
