American Gangster: Trap Queens is a new installment of the critically acclaimed American Gangster series that examines the lives and the legend behind some of America's most notorious female criminals. The series takes an unusual angle by presenting the true stories of the criminals from a positive point of view. The idea seems to reach for empowerment, suggesting that women can be just as successful at crime as men if they try hard enough. In some cases, the stories are backed by the women themselves. They've done their time and now they're looking to go straight. Of course, they're doing so by trying to make money off their criminal histories. The series is narrated by rapper Lil Kim. Kim has expressed admiration for some of the criminals profiled, especially the Detroit drug "queenpin" Brandi Davis. Kim suggests that she may have actually crossed paths with the real Brandi Davis. She also has expressed admiration for the fact that Davis built her drug empire through perseverance and a strong work ethic. The second season of the series debuted on the BET cable network in January 2021. This series shouldn't be confused with the 2007 crime thriller film starring Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe and directed by Ridley Scott.
