Hustling With Muscle: The Ripple Effects Of 2012 Snoopy Green Slaying In Chicago Were Immediate

The murder of Four Corner Hustlers affiliate Dominique (Snoopy) Green in Chicago in the summer of 2012 set off a violent chain reaction. Snoopy Green was the brother of Four Corner Hustlers lieutenant and aspiring rapper Rontrell (Mane Mane) Turnispeed and the best friend of Four Corner Hustlers enforcer Keith (Lil’ Keith) Chatman. He was slain in a hale of bullets on August 1, 2012. Hours later, on August 2, 2012, the two young men believed responsible for Green’s murder, 16 year olds Cornell Ferguson and Johnqualus Turner were gunned down in an unsolved double homicide currently being probed by authorities.

Turnispeed, 26, and Chatman, 31, both pleaded guilty to federal narcotics trafficking charges this summer. Chatman is viewed by the DEA as a suspect in the Ferguson and Turner murders. He told agents he “cried for two days straight” after his close pal Snoopy Green was killed.

The Four Corner Hustlers are a powerful and violent street gang from the south side of Chicago. Turnispeed rapped for Chicago “drill rap” pioneer Chief Keef’s Glo Gang label before he was busted in the 2017 case.

Four Corner Hustlers shot caller LaBar (Bro Man) Spann and two others will head to trial in 2020 on six gangland slayings from the early 2000s. Along with Turnispeed, Chatman and a half-dozen other “4s,” they were all indicted in 2017. The 40-year old, wheelchair-bound Spann has pleaded not guilty and is being held without bond.
