Ex-LA Drug Kingpin seeking investors for biopic film project. Dana Gold sits down exclusively with GWOP Magazine to tell his story.
Back in 1987, a $23 million dollar drug bust was broadcasted all over the news, “The biggest in L.A. History”. Twenty-five years later, one man has a REAL true story to tell about his fast luxurious life from the late 1970’s until the early 1990’s. Convicted drug kingpin from LA, Dana Gold moved 100-1000 kilos of cocaine a week during the late 1980s, profiting up to $1M per week.
Dana Gold grew up in a middle class Jewish neighborhood in Los Angeles, CA in the mid 1970’s. As a kid, he had hoop dreams while playing pick up basketball games with future NBA stars Steve Kerr, Kiki Vandeweghie, Chris Mills, and Cedric Ceballos. Dana was a high school All-Star and received a college scholarship. Soon those hoop dreams would fade into street dreams as Dana’s popularity drove him to become heavily involved in the drug trafficking business.
Dana started off selling pounds of weed before graduating to kilos of cocaine. He owned and operated VIP Boxing gym in LA in the early 1990s, when the sport of boxing was at its prime and promoted fighters like Carlos “Famoso” Hernandez, Larry Holmes and Tommy “Hitman” Hearns. He gambled at Las Vegas casinos, owned and wagered big money on thoroughbred horse races and his past girlfriends and wives included celebrities, singers, actresses and models.
