Season 2 of the BET+ original true crime series American Gangster: Trap Queens is returning in October with hip-hop icon Lil’ Kim as narrator once again. 

The stories will focus on the criminal activities of Tonesa Welch, Peggy Fulford, Claudette Hubbard, Catherine Pugh, and Priscilla Echi, according to a press release from BET+. The women’s crimes ranged from laundering millions of dollars, to narcotics distribution and trafficking, tax evasion and property theft.

“I was the angel of Harlem until I played the devil’s game,” one of the women says in the season 2 trailer.

In another episode, Peggy Fulford’s story chronicles how she swindled some of the top NBA players at the time, including Dennis Rodman.

“Be very careful, because when you get put on that pedestal, that fall is really, really hard,” she says from a prison phone in her interview. 

“I wanted to be on the Peggy train — I didn’t realize the ticket would be so expensive,” one of Fulford’s victims says in the trailer.

Just like the first season, the second season will spotlight the true-life narratives of female lawbreakers. Each episode dives into the criminal exploits of a particular Queen-pin and explores the circumstances and environments that gave rise to their criminal path. 

The episodes also show the redemption some of the women have gone through as they caution others who might be considering a life of crime.

The series is executive produced by Arthur Smith and Frank Sinton of A. Smith & Co. Productions, alongside Daytime Emmy Award-winner and activist, Judge Greg Mathis. Delece James, Mark Anthony, Breht Gardner, and Jackson Nguyen also serve as executive producers.

Season 2 of American Gangster: Trap Queens premieres on Thursday, Oct. 7 on BET+. All episodes will be available that same day.
