Lamont played in a four piece band with Cornell Tyree, Bittleston, and Bowe, their band was comprised by musical booking agent Jermaine Jones. The band played at The Blue Room, sometimes accompanying Elsa Lichtmann. However, Lamont and Tyree were drug addicts and became heavily dependent on morphine. He bought morphine from the Black Caesar Food Hut, from vendor Fleetwood Morgan, who received daily supplies from Jermaine Jones, who received it from Lenny Finkelstein, a lieutenant in the Cohen Crime Syndicate. Morgan distributed the morphine out of the hut by strapping the syrettes to the bottom of popcorn cups. Lamont received the morphine in this manner, even in broad daylight. He went back to his apartment to use it with Tyree. However, both of the men overdosed and died.

Vice detectives Cole Phelps and Roy Earle responded to Lamont and Tyree's deaths. They discovered that they had, in fact, overdosed on the morphine. They also found many popcorn cups from the hut. Under one of the cups, Phelps discovered a syrette of morphine, providing a lead of the distribution process. With this evidence, the detectives left the apartment, and followed the lead to the Black Caesar food hut.
