This video clip features a key scene from American Gangster, in which Denzel Washington's Frank Lucas explains to his brothers (also his business partners) the most important things in business. For those who haven't seen it, American Gangster is a stellar 2007 crime drama based on a true story that details the life of Frank Lucas, an African-American heroin kingpin in New York in the late 60s and early 70s. While his business was dealing drugs, make no mistake - Lucas, as depicted in American Gangster, is an astute business mind. How much of that is fact and how much Hollywood creative license is besides the point here. Watch the clip below, then watch (or rewatch) this film and see how Lucas employed disintermediation to leapfrog his better-positioned competition, as well as how he dealt with tradamark infringement issues.
