block party.

Ben struck up a conversation with one of our neighbors earlier this week and guess what? Turns out that Rayful Edmonds, the most notorious drug dealer in DC and apparently credited with introducing crack to the District in the 80s, lived and operated off of Orleans Place. The same Orleans Place we live on. Apparently, he had a money house and a drug house. Rayful ran an operation worth billions of dollars, was tied to over 30 homicides, dominated about 60% of the drug market in the city, was convicted and went to jail, continued his drug trade behind bars by using a special pig latin to communicate with his dealers, and then eventually became an informant in a deal to get his mother released from prison. All a real, true story. There is also a documentary about it on youtube...but yeah - Orleans Place - making us proud!
