UPDATE: According to a report the Philadelphia Inquirer published on Tuesday (Nov. 19), jurors found the rapper, born Abdul West, guilty of turning his Original Block Hustlaz (OBH) record label into a drug trafficking ring implicated in at least two murders. West’s codefendants Jamaal “Bionickhaz” Blanding, Jameel “Melanio” Hickson and Hans “No Brakes Bras” Gadsen were reportedly also found guilty. West and his codefendants maintained that OBH was not a drug-trafficking front but a legitimate record label throughout the trial. “Every one of them had their hustles,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Everett R. Witherell said of Ar-Ab and his co-defendants in his closing argument last week. “But it all ran through Mr. West.” Ar-Ab's three co-defendants were reportedly also found guilty of conspiracy and distribution of crack, cocaine, heroin and methamphetamine. Five others in the case pleaded guilty before the start of trial.
According to the publication, Ar-Ab smiled and blew a kiss to a group of supporters and fans in the courtroom when U.S. Marshals handcuffed him and led him out of the building. Under federal drug laws, Ar-Ab now reportedly faces a mandatory minimum of 15 years in prison.
Ar-Ab first made waves in the rap game as a former artist under Philly rapper Cassidy. He later made news for his rap beef with Meek Mill during his battle with @champagnepapi where he was mentioned in the line “IM OUT HERE IN THE WRAITH PLAYING AR-AB” this beef was later squashed. In 2016, Ar-Ab secured a deal with Cash Money Records. What do y’all think about this #acidrants •
