The ABC Boys Bust-Down Dorrough
I’m really starting to believe that there is a Hip Hop law enforcement conspiracy, because it’s really starting to look like they’re specifically targeting rappers! Dorrough is the latest victim of the ABC Boys. He was arrested on Tuesday after 10 DEA agents raided his Dallas home looking for weapons and drugs! And you know they recently busted Juelz Santana’s studio and Waka Flocka’s home!
Ja Rule Catches A Little Break
Speaking of being on the wrong side of the law, Ja Rule just bought some time before heading to prison for two years! He pleaded guilty last year to attempted weapons possession after police found a loaded gun in his car. His sentence has been pushed back about a month to March 9.
The Game Has To Ante Up
The Game also had some legal trouble of his own. An L.A. judge has ordered him to pay $91,000 to a jewelry company that he had purchased $200,000 worth of jewelry from back in ’07 and ’08. The jewelry includes a couple of bracelets, chains and earrings!
