Any true connoisseur of street lore knows the name Wayne “Silk” Perry. Perry’s name is synonymous with bloodshed. He very well may be the most notorious gangster to ever walk the streets of Washington, DC. His name was ringing before, but he came to street stardom when he was enlisted by Harlem/DC kingpin-turned-informant Alberto “Alpo” Martinez, executing murders, robberies, drug deals and extortions. It was Alpo’s testimony that took Wayne off the street and placed him behind bars for the rest of his natural life.
Since being locked down, Perry has converted to Islam, and has taken on the name Nkosi Shaka Zulu-El as he serves time in Washington. previously, he was serving time at the ADX Florence Supermax prison alongside Gangster Disciple chieftain Larry Hoover; Afghan national and international heroin trafficker, Haji Bagcho; Gulf Cartel drug smuggler, Juan Garcia Abrego, who was responsible for the importation of thousands of tons of cocaine and marijuana into the United States from Mexico; and prominent Aryan Brotherhood leader, Thomas Silverstein.
Nkosi Shaka Zulu-El, a.k.a. Wayne Perry shared some words with the world from behind the wall, recently. He shared a desire to see violence stopped in the hoods of the United States.
