Young Boys Inc. (Documentary)

Young Boys Incorporated existed in Detroit between 1978 and the late 1980’s. It’s first major indictment was in 1982. It was the first organized crime group to use juveniles as strategy to evade law enforcement. It’s primary drug was heroin and it is one of the most important and influential black criminal groups in American history… turning teenaers into millionaires and in the words of the noted African-American Sociologist Dr. Carl Taylor “YBI was the group that made selling drugs hip and made killing people Okay.” Motown Records fled Detroit for Los Angeles in 1972 and in the vaccum left in Detroit’s economy and society becoming the “Dopeman” replaced singing for Barry Gordy as the ultimate dream. This segment is from “Rollin: the Fall of the Auto Industry and the Rise of the Drug Economy in Detroit” — “B” was recruited to sell drugs as a teenager and is an original YBI member. During the early 1980’s my mother was a heroin user and we lived on Monterey Street aka “Murder-Ray”… also one of the original stronghold streets of YBI. I know that she bought her heroin from them, perhaps from “B”…. who knows… if you’re interested in knowing more watch “Rollin” on Amazon Prime for free with no commercials or here on
