Cocaine Cowboys 2

Cocaine Cowboys 2 – formally titled #Cocaine Cowboys II: Hustlin’ With the Godmother – is a 2008 #documentary film sequel to Cocaine Cowboys (2006). Directed by Billy Corben and Lisa M. Perry and produced by Rakontur, the film “stars” Charles Cosby, Nelson Andreu, and Jorge “Rivi” Ayala and features the Colombian-born “Cocaine Godmother”, drug lord Griselda Blanco.

Set in 1991, the film is largely narrated by Cosby, a small-time cocaine dealer from a broken home located in Oakland’s inner-city. As described in the film summary published in The New York Times, the film “follows Charles Cosby, a small time coke dealer in Oakland whose life is changed forever when he writes a fan letter to the “Cocaine Godmother” Griselda Blanco, who is serving time at a nearby federal prison. Six months later, Cosby is a multi-millionaire, Blanco’s lover, and the head of her $40 million a year cocaine business.” [1]

The documentary also explains why Blanco has earned another sobriquet – “The Black Widow” – and the steps she takes to ensure Cosby’s loyalty.
