ATF and DCPD collaborated on a recent investigation where law enforcement posed as a record label with a complete recording studio to catch wannabe gangsta rappers. Five-o created Manic Enterprises in NW DC with fictional rap artist Richie Valdez. From there, they began linking up with hoodrats all over the DMV and even a supposed Mexican cartel link in ATL. I wonder how many rappers are questioning their new label right now.
It’s been a bad year for hip-hop and the Feds. Jay-Z’s old partner Biggs got popped for being one of the largest weed suppliers for NYC, and Jimmie Henchmen is currently sitting behind bars while he awaits trial on being the kingpin in a major cocaine ring that used music equipment to smuggle powder from CA to NY. I guess the Feds finally started listening to the music.
