Juelz Santana Turns Himself Into Police

3 Feb

These rappers just don’t seem to learn…obviously being a famous rapper doesn’t mean anything anymore. You break the law, they’re on you! Dipset rapper Juelz Santana turned himself into police yesterday (Feb 2) for a warrant that was issued last month after his studio was raided and busted with drugs and guns.

According to sources, police had been looking for Santana since the Santana Studio in North Bergen, New Jersey was raided on January 20th. According to The Record, Juelz was arrested and charged with possession of a firearm, possession of a handgun without a permit, possession of a controlled dangerous substance and possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a school.

Juelz was not present when the studio was raided, but a Skull Gang associate named Toby “Hynief” Raynor was busted after a ten month undercover investigation by the Bergen County Prosecutors Gang Unit.

“We are hopeful that my Brother will be released tonight,” Jermaine “Twin” James, Santana’s older brother and Manager told AllHipHop.com in a statement. “He is just being processed through the system right now. I posted his bail earlier today.  All computers are currently down at the Prosecutor’s Office,” Twin said.

Two loaded 9mm handguns were found in the studio, along with 17 small bags of marijuana. “Santana was out-of-town at the time of Raynor’s arrest,” added Lynn Hobson, Juelz’ publicist. “We are just looking forward to having this whole situation cleared up.”

Police claim Juelz is a member of the feared Bloods street gang, which according to a recent report on gang activity in New Jersey, is the biggest street gang in the state. Juelz Santana, born Laron James, is currently being held at the Bergen County Jail in Hackensack on $125,000 bail.

Another day, another rapper headed to jail *sigh* what’s new…

Tiny’s Misdemeanor Drug Charge Dropped

6 Jan

Tiny might not be able to see her hubby the Kaaaang T.I. anytime soon, but at least she won’t have to worry about joining him. The misdemeanor drug charge against Tameka “Tiny” Harris has been dropped. The details still aren’t clear but her best friend, Shamra Rodriguez—who occasionally accompanied Tiny to Arkansas to visit T.I. in prison last year—just tweeted:

Congrats 2 my Sis @TinyMajorMama!! Her 1 California misdemeanor charge was dismissed today!! Yep she’s clear!!

Tiny, 35, and her husband T.I., 30, were arrested on drug possession charges after the Maybach they were riding in was pulled over on Sunset Boulevard in LA on September 1st. Police found several Ecstasy pills on the famous couple.

Shamra Rodriguez is the mom of two members of the OMG Girlz, Lourdes (Lolo) and Bahja. As you know, Tiny manages the OMG Girlz along with her partner Keisha Babi.

T.I. and Tiny ‘Get Busy’ In Prison…and Get Caught

6 Jan

Why can’t Tiny and T.I. beat it like Michael Jackson? According to TMZ, rapper T.I. got in serious trouble with prison officials this weekend—after guards caught T.I.’s wife Tiny giving her man a hand (I don’t mean round of applause) during visiting hours.

 Tiny confirms the two were in a room together during regular visiting hours at Arkansas State Prison, and that’s when the visit got a lil frisky.

According to prison guidelines, inmates are allowed to kiss and embrace at the beginning and at the end of a visit as well as hold hands — but “the inmate’s hands must remain in plain view of Visiting Room staff at all times.”

Tiny says T.I. was immediately reprimanded and sent to a “Special Housing Unit” — which consists of more security and less freedom.

She hasn’t spoken to T.I. since the incident — but she’s hopeful she’ll be allowed to visit again soon. Just remember to keep your hand to yourself Tiny!

Even though this story is crazy, I do love how these two truly ride out for each other, hand jobs in jail and all. They definitely are the reigning Bonnie and Clyde…not sure there’s much competition for that title tho.

Gucci Mane Ordered To Spend 30 Days In Rehab

4 Jan

Gucci Mane is about to follow in the footsteps of T.I…

The Southern rapper was ordered by a judge in court today to spend 30 days in a medical treatment center until his next hearing.

 “The court ordered Mr. Davis into treatment of a medical treatment facility, pending a revocation hearing later this month.” Gucci’s lawyer, Michael Holmes told XXL.

During the hearing, Gucci was also informed that he will more than likely be sentenced to 17 months in jail for violating the terms of his probation back in November.

His next court date is at the end of the month. Why are so many rappers hopping on the merry-go-round of court dates and jail? Let’s hope Gucci, T.I. and DMX can somehow get their lives back on track, and not for their fans or rap music, but more importantly for themselves and their families.

Just moments ago a Fulton County Superior Court Judge has ordered that Radric Davis better known as Gucci Mane be remanded to prison for a violation of probation stemming from an arrest last year. The rapper’s attorney requested that the judge allow him to be on an ankle monitor, however his probation officer fought vigorously to have him placed in custody for which the judge agreed.

Rapper Gucci Mane is facing a prison term of 17 months if he is in fact found guilty of the violation. Hip Hop Enquirer’s Dennis Byron was on the scene to bring this breaking news story. A hearing date has been set for January 24th, 2011 in Fulton County Superior Court.
