While some people may think that Frank Lucas was one of the biggest heroin kingpins in New York during the 1970s after "American Gangster" was released, Pee Wee Kirkland told VladTV that his operation was much bigger. The famed drug kingpin and basketball player revealed that many of the scenes in the 2007 Denzel Washington film were sensationalized, including where drugs are brought into the U.S. from Vietnam in coffins.

When asked if he would ever release his own tell-all movie, Kirkland explained that he's been approached for years about doing a biopic, but he made it clear that he's not interested in giving every detail of his life for a movie. After adding that his film will be a lot more real than "American Gangster," Pee Wee spoke about how he has turned his life around and now he has influenced hip-hop artists, including Ludacris, on how to better themselves and leave the street life alone.
