These charges might stick
No Plug is back in trouble with the law again. According to Say Cheese TV, the rapper was arrested on charges related to cocaine trafficking and gang activity. But at least we know that the Atlanta spitter is truthful, he really has no plug if these charges are accurate.
The website lists his charges as “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).”
It’s the second time in a year that the rapper has been brought up on rather serious charges. The No Plug readily admitted that he shot and killed his fellow Atlanta rapper and childhood friend Bankroll Fresh a few months back, but claimed that he did so in self-defense.
“He came out, playin’ with the s***…he fired a shot, and s*** happened,” he told VladTV in a controversial interview.
“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.”
Luckily for No Plug, police released video of the shooting that appeared to back up his story. In the video, Bankroll can be seen firing an assault rifle at a nearby car before the car fires back and pulls off. The authorities clearly believed No Plug’s version of events, as he was a free man until today.
The cavalier attitude toward Bankroll’s death earned him quite a few enemies, including Bankroll’s family. The late rapper’s uncle sent an open letter to the publication accusing them of being scavengers who scrape for negative news. He wrote:
“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?”
No Plug said that a closer look at the heat he was catching showed that all of the threats he was receiving on the internet came from angry teenagers.
“It really was a whole bunch of Instagram/Twitter little kids who didn’t know what was going on,” said No Plug in a later interview with HipHopDX. “It wasn’t no real street n*ggas that was making threats to my life or some sh*t. You can’t get that involved with you because they don’t know me and his situation and how close we really was. It’s cool. I miss that n*gga, though.”
