Philly rap star AR-Ab is convicted of running drug ring implicated in murders, faces at least 15 years in prison


"In West’s case, prosecutors argued, his rap lyrics and social media persona were more than just marketing: They amounted to a confession to crimes.

Jurors were shown several of West’s videos as FBI agents pinpointed direct links to crimes he or members of his crew had committed.

Prosecutors interpreted his lyrics in one of them to be an admission that he ordered the murder of Robert Johnson, a drug world rival who died in 2017 after being shot multiple times on the 4000 block of Benner Street in Wissinoming. A member of West’s entourage is serving prison time for the slaying.

“I’ll have da whole city scared,” the song says. “Stand near homie / I call Tez [a nickname for the shooter] and tell him / Bring dat n—’s head to me.”

Investigators discovered the lyrics for that track, written four days after the slaying, in a note in West’s phone while searching one of his stash houses in Penn’s Landing in 2018.


He maintained that it was a coincidence. Prosecutors balked.

“Either he’s the most unlucky musician that ever existed,” a*sistant U.S. Attorney Everett R. Witherell told jurors during his closing arguments last week, “or he ordered that hit.”

FBI agents targeted another OBH stash house in Penn’s Landing last year, seizing more than 10 kg of cocaine and methamphetamine. West released a music video in the weeks that followed, bemoaning in lyrics that the feds “took 10 of ‘em,” a reference to his drugs.

“Quarter million loss, got a broke heart,” he rapped. “And they snatched my dog, that’s the worst part. / One rat destroy everything you work for. / I pray to god that he don’t tell them who he work for.”

Throughout the trial, West and his codefendants maintained that OBH was not just a front for their drug-trafficking efforts but a legitimate record label that had drawn interest from fans and music industry insiders alike.

“OBH is a legit entity,” said Luis A. Ortiz, a lawyer for West’s codefendant Jameel Hickson. “This is a monetized operation that has 1.7 million hits on just one of its videos.”

But dozens of witnesses, including several members of the OBH drug ring who pleaded guilty and testified against their former colleagues, described a substantial trafficking network — one that bought cocaine, heroin, and meth from a supplier in California, sold the drugs on the streets of the North Philadelphia, and stored them in high-end Center City apartments they turned into stash houses, many rented under fake names.

Tuesday’s convictions left the future of OBH and its artists in doubt. AR-Ab, by far the most popular rapper at the label he cofounded, now faces decades behind bars.

Its second-most renowned artist, Charles “Dark Lo” Salley, who was not indicted along with the others, appears to have been arrested during the trial for allegedly intimidating witnesses.

Although public court dockets do not indicate whether charges have been filed against him, he is listed as being held in federal custody. His Instagram was updated earlier this month with a statement revealing that he’d been arrested in connection with his contact with witnesses in West’s case.

West’s codefendants at trial all had links to OBH. They include: Jamaal “Khaz” Blanding, Jameel “Meliano” Hickson, and Hans “No Brakes Bras” Gadsen. Others pleaded guilty before trial."

Tuesday’s verdict came after a two-week trial that put West’s music under a microscope and raised questions about just how much a genre defined by violent, hypermasculine boasting of street-honed toughness can be taken at its word.

this dude is a noodle. straight clown. got what he deserved. maybe even less than he deserved considering they didnt put bodies on him. ive only ever watched maybe two of his interviews but its clear to me it was more important to him to put his business on the streets than to actually stay OUT of jail. dude is a moron.

Extroverts make the worse gangsters but they always seem to be drawn to that world. Idiots doing interviews, making rap songs, posing in pictures but are always shocked when they get the attention they’re looking for.
