Millz got caught
Rapper Montana Millz was just sentenced to three years in prison on heroin trafficking charges.
The rapper behind tracks like “Sell Drugsz” and “Feds Watching” was caught with heroin and fentanyl. He will begin his sentence after pleading guilty to five counts of distribution of fentanyl, one count each of possession with the intent to distribute fentanyl, and distribution of heroin back in October.
The Rhode Island-based rapper was caught up by an investigation run by East Providence police. Over the course of four and a half months, a detective managed to buy 22 grams of fentanyl and 2 grams of heroin from the rapper.
Prosecutors said that the rapper born Michael Persaud brought his family into the operation. The detective said that on more than one occasion, Persaud was driven to the deals by his girlfriend, who has three children with Persaud.
Persaud’s lawyers asked for leniency in sentencing and appeared to get it. According to The Source, he used his hustle to try to make it as a rapper as proof that he can make a legitimate living.
“Persaud has shown an ability and a proclivity to work at legitimate jobs throughout his life and knows the value of hard work and self-sufficiency,” they said.
Persaud isn’t the only rapper to go down for high-level drug charges recently. The rapper No Plug proved the accuracy of his name when he was arrested for cocaine trafficking last year.
According to Say Cheese the rapper was booked with “foreign warrant, possession and use of drug-related object, possession of controlled substance in schedule I or II intent to distribute, trafficking in cocaine, and possession of marijuana (less than 1 oz).”
And that was far from the worst trouble that No Plug has ever been in of late. No Plug also shot and killed much-loved Atlanta rapper Bankroll Fresh. However, he claimed it was in self-defense and even gave an interview about his side of the story.
“He came out, playin’ with the s***…he fired a shot, and s*** happened,” he told VladTV. He continued:
“We pulled off, he end up dead. That’s as simple as s*** was. Like he pulled the gun, shot the motherf***er, couple shots got fired back, he got hit, I leave. Next thing you know, folks callin’ me sayin’ ‘Fresh dead,’ know what I’m sayin’. I called my lawyer…Gucci Mane’s lawyer, gave him $10,000, go down to the homicide, tell Ms. Benton everything, and s***, everything was great. End of story.”
The interview earned heat in all directions, including toward Vlad. The family of Bankroll Fresh released a statement calling the website a “culture vulture.”’
“Dear Vlad, You disrespectful culture vulture. I offered you to talk to my family, (Bankroll Fresh’s family) when my nephew was first killed. Did you call us or reached out to the Street Money Worldwide family or his father and mother to get a rebuttal to No Plug’s story? None of that! When I asked you to interview Bankroll PJ and how he was continuing the legacy, you had a subordinate call me to tell me, you’re passing on PJ. He had just released a new single out plus he’s starring in a new FX TV show (Atlanta) this fall with Childish Gambino but no that was too positive, huh? Not enough black on black crime?”
