Ralo

A massive early morning raid on a Southwest Atlanta apartment complex on Wednesday is connected to the arrest of up-and-coming rapper Ralo, according to Channel 2 Action News.

Agents from the ATF, FBI and Department of Homeland Security executed no-knock warrants on Ralo's heavily fortified apartment complex along Lucile Avenue.

Dozens of local and federal agents descended upon the quiet, unassuming apartment block around 11:00 a.m., following the arrest of the Muslim rapper who is signed to rap mogul Gucci Mane's record label. Gucci is pictured above left with Ralo.

Ralo

Ralo, who was born Terrell Davis, was arrested Sunday at DeKalb-Peachtree Airport, where police found large quantities of marijuana. The rapper was charged with a drug conspiracy, but that charge was dropped and other felony charges have since been added.

Sources in the neighborhood tell WSB-TV's Matt Johnson that they were awakened to the sounds of sirens, doors being kicked in and choppers flying overhead.

“It scared me. I jumped up and looked out the window and seen police everywhere,” neighbor Tony Daniels told Johnson. “There were sirens going on, helicopters flying and doors kicking in."

Federal agents at the scene offered few details about the raids, but friends told Johnson they saw an agent remove one of Ralo's Islamic flags.

The feds targeted multiple apartment units in the tidy complex, which Ralo reportedly owned.

Ralo

One neighbor spoke kindly of Ralo, who helped organize activities for the children in the complex known as "Lil Pakistan".

“He’s not what people think he is. He's a good person,” Haroun Wakil said. "The people in the community love him. I’ve seen people change their lives just because of him,” said Wakil, who often worked with Ralo to organize community events.

Wakil added, "I want to see him get out because I love the man."

Others in the neighborhood were too afraid to speak on camera because they say their homes and cars have been hit by stray bullets that have come from this complex.

In an interview with Vladtv.com, Ralo described his apartment complex as an "armed fortress," where he felt safe enough to enjoy the comforts of home.

Rapper Future once said Ralo was the only rapper he knew with money who still lived in the 'hood.

"Future [is] just surprised that I got the amount of money that I got," Ralo told Vlad. "You know, I park my Lamborghini in the hood... Two, three million just sitting out there... It shocks him that I do that. It's just that I'm comfortable there."

Ralo told Vlad he owned 26 apartment units and 5 houses in the Southwest Atlanta neighborhood. He said he felt safer living in the gated apartment complex with armed security who are licensed to carry weapons.

"Everything's legit. I got me a little Army base and I'm the general," Ralo said.

    #1-he's a black Muslim. Bad move
    #2-he's a black muslim with a gun. bad move
    #3-he's a black muslim making money selling illegal drugs. If he wants to be legal he should move to Colorado.
    #4 - he lives in a fortified house. bad move
    #5 - showboating money . bad move

  • stav

    Why does some black people always categorize all black people, and not say some .. especially being black themselves? Some blacks are not the only ones into this kind of foolishness. Instagram is loaded with all races flaunting money, jewelry, women , etc. However this man is like many others ,quite stupid... but one reaps what they sow.

  • king shun

    all that money in the music industry blacks make is not spent to uplift only right back to the white folks and their car dealerships and designer clothes...a Muslim who rap and wear jewelry lol smh might as well eat pork and say you Muslim too

    where police found large quantities of marijuana
    ^^^^^^^^^^^
    This it? No guns? No nar-cata? No pills? No lean? Let me go see his charges.

  • Libra80sBaby

    Who dis is?!

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    OT: The two guys who were arrested. https://www.yahoo.com/gma/men-arrested-starbucks-were-business-meeting-hoping-change-114103068--abc-news-topstories.html

    Obviously the barista moved too soon to judge and act. However, I can understand the manager having experienced a lot of stuff during her tenure. But Starbucks needs a universal policy about trespassing.
    I'm glad the young man said 'it's not a black people thing' it's a people thing.

  • Libra80sBaby

    That narcotic is stored somewhere else...lol

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    They needed to move to Colorado where it's legal.

  • Yoni7

    I keep telling yall, when they "legalize" it, WATCH THE ONES WHO WILL profit from it.

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    Okay, he didn't have a gun -- that we know of.

  • Libra80sBaby

    Somebody call Kareem Saïd (Oz)... he aint representin properly.

  • WutizstillHERE!

    Please note..the reason the tenants loved him is because he let them pay very little rent so they can be a stack/stash house for his dough and drugs. The most notorious dealers surround themselves with paid loyalty..

  • FukkFolks2018

    "Sources say Ralo was arrested Sunday at DeKalb-Peachtree Airport and authorities found a large amount of marijuana with him.

    Authorities did not say what they seized in the raid on Wednesday"

    "they saw an agent remove one of Ralo’s Islamic flags"

    So he was arrested Sunday but this happened days later? I have so many questions. If he a criminal lock his ass up. But something aint right here. Sorry not sorry. as of right now this sounds like some bullshat.

  • Ni Ni

    Yep, i remember hearing back in the day a few businessmen had sold drugs but once they got their business up and running, they stopped. Every thing was real low key back then.

  • justlooking

    He said that out the great character he has displayed thus far.

    A previous employee she demoted said the racist manager had blackaphobia.

  • Kemi

    Don’t have time for this today. One thing is for sure, the trolls are on full force coming out of the internet sewers to comment this morning, honey!!

  • jayhawkpride

    He posted evidence of money laundering and racketeering on his IG page!! What a dummy!!

  • WutizstillHERE!

    Oh yeah definitely! In the black world where getting a loan for a legit business was hard because of lack of collateral or poor credit score..they went into bidnez so they can stack and turn it into a legit business..

  • Kanyade

    Working class, I reckon. Some old buildings/homes.

  • Kanyade

    Nah? lol I can't tell the difference. Just older buildings/homes.

  • WutizstillHERE!

    Reminds you of a mini Carter from New Jack City.. and it was run probably just like it too..

  • king shun

    oh i mis read but i ment no muslim would be selling drugs well not a muslim who follows the quran that muslim stuff was just a gimmick for him...selling drug is a death sentence according to the hudud

  • MocaPretty

    Okay so I'll ask...all that money so why does he live in an apartment complex known as Lil Pakistan? Why???

  • iWasteTime

    She called the cops as soon as they walked in. Camera said they walked in at 3:35 and the cops got there at 3:37, 2 minutes!! 2 DAMN Minutes!!!

    Prop money is essential for plays and films where the characters hold and use money, particularly if the plot is focused around a large sum of money and because using real money is simply impractical. Prop money, when held close up, often appear glaringly fake because it is illegal to color-copy money. Thus, prop money is often black and white and slightly smaller or larger than standard bills. Federal laws prohibit copying bills of standard size. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/031d34bca9be9ca449eba97ad708caadd71dc470d1dd7d561934f670a0eb96fc.jpg

  • Dollface

    According to the article he owns the 26 unit apartment. My guess is he's gutted a handful of those units and made himself a spectacular enterprise. The article also states that he is most comfortable "in the hood." Hope that helps.

  • RudyHuxtable

    Dummies who display their illegal activities on social media for the world to see are asking to be caught by the FEDS. Drug dealing 101.

  • Bossy704

    We went from "Stop Snitching" to "Snitching on Yourself" I will never understand why people feel the need to tell the world their business. Enjoy your life and mind your business. All this extra is not beneficial.

  • Dollface

    Speaking of prop money - I know that little he/she Asian kid that someone is insisting we as black people should care about name "Lil Tay" uses prop money.

  • king shun

    yeh really they on sum f black people shyt but will not say it..cause no matter how many exotic cars and mansions they get the only folks impressed is other black folks that who they showing off on..a broke homeless white man still feel like they better than them and them guys know it

  • Pebbles

    They do just like any other religious folks

    That have one foot in the dunyah ( streets) and one foot in the Deen ( religious)

    When the letter boys come for you it’s serious

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOL!!!!

  • king shun

    yeh just like christens its very few that really act christ like and very few muslims who act and follow Muhammad footsteps..but what this guy is doing is along the lines of eating a ham sandwich and and chasing it with a cold beer on tv and saying he a muslim

  • sunni_daze

    I think I get it now
    IG models= prostitutes
    Up & Coming Rapper = Dope Boy
    They confused me with the name change.

  • Pebbles

    Yup! He is wrong!
    Dislike the act not the person ... there is always time to make tawba ( repentance) & return to what’s correct as long as he believe in the one ness of Allah associate no parters and prays he Muslim despite his shortcomings

    But if he was in a Muslim country where the laws are truly different then yeah .. hudud would be established if he was found guilty

    The letter boys don’t come for you unless all thier T’s are crossed and the i’s are dotted

  • Toni Toni Toni

    Exactly. Why Floss. Move in Silence and dont tell anyone ish. Geesh. WHy do they do that? I will never understand that mentality. They care too much what others think. THey make their JOBS so easy nowadays. They know them mofos are nosey as hell

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOL!!!!!!!

    Legal to use and legal to distribute is two different things.

    Stop letting people know what you got.

  • Pamela

    Reminds me of Denzel's character in the movie American Gangstar, slapping his younger brother for stunting...

  • WutizstillHERE!

    Yep and stunting actually took him down too. His wife flossing ass got him caught up by buying the fur coat lol!

  • Rayne

    Flossing too much. I never liked dudes like that. Cause if that’s all you show me that’s ALL. I want. ??

  • RICHIE_RICH

  • SweetTEE

    That sounds about right lol

  • Quitedeliteful

    Young and Dumb... He will learn though. Pics of all that money is so tacky!!! Lil Pakistan sounds like a war zone but if he's comfortable there, so be it. I just hope he can account for all that money the police are going to steal yet bring charges against him for having...

  • ?Sugar&Spice?

    It's crazy....I understood every word he said.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Smiling and Flossing until the Feds come busting thru... I wonder if he can handle that prison life..

  • Trace da Ace

    dammnn....I bet all kind of bags of weed was flushed down the toilet that morning when folks woke up and saw the FEDS outside....

  • Queen B

    He'll get out tomorrow Atlanta love their celebrities lol

  • Jersey Girl

    But thats the problem Quitedeliteful.. Im sure they saw and heard everything he said.. Black men you have to move quiter and better because trust me you are indeed Public Enemy # 1.. in their eyes

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Yup, he won and they pissed.

  • J2PC

    Those types will forever behave that way. It reflects their low self-esteem with a thirsty emotional need for a "how'd you like me now" moment. Flossing their overpriced mall materialism & pimped out rides are also included. -it's not normal & draws attention.

  • J2PC

    His thug crew needed to be illegal immigrants to get away with that behavior. Blacks will go to jails & prisons while illegal immigrants breaking the law will be released back into so-called safe cities in America

    There are no safe cities for Blacks thugging with a stacks of cash. Once drugs & weapons are found, they will have a right to take all of his $$$ and assets. -I guess he didn't get that memo.

  • J2PC

    Low self-esteem betrays them every time. They have a thirsty emotional need to feel better about themselves by flossing their hood wealth to say "Look what I got...how'd you like me now!?!" smh

  • J2PC

    A bit late, but you're on point. lol

  • i troll it like i see it

    "Heavily fortified apartment complex," like the
    "The Carter" from New Jack City? What the hell they got going on in there?

  • ?Sugar&Spice?

    That marijuana is probably for his stress...the stress that America puts on young black men. Why isn't he allowed to be rich?

  • ?Sugar&Spice?

    Yeah I don't think that's how it works. Is it?

  • Quitedeliteful

    Very true...They do not want to see a Black Man flossing with that type of money -- more money than they will make in their entire life...

  • Karen Brady

    Never heard of him but he looks ridic.

  • Just here4 the comments

    he the King HUH???

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    Nailed it! Low self esteem make the "new money" fools, want to show everyone all that they have because they feel like that's the only way tgey will get the love and attention, they've always desired.

    Auntie...brang black chyna back. Id prefer reading about her antics rather then read about how ignorant these rappers are.

  • Hmmm~?

    Used to live right down the street from that complex. The whole complex was a trap house. Lots of shoot outs, lots of policed called there. Surprised the city didn't shut it down.

  • Hmmm~?

    Because literally none of that money was acquired legally. Lol.

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    How stupid could you be.......feds take all his damn money cars and home for being so stupid. Did y'all see the apartment building he was living in!?!?! People like him don't need no damn money

  • BTweekin

    I'm Sure The Muslim Flag They Took Is The Black One That Resembles ISIS & They Dropped His Charges On The State Level & Picked Them Up On The Federal Level. Also, He Did Brag A Lot In Interviews With Vlad TV About Being The Biggest Drug Dealer On His Side Of ATL... Those Airport Drugs Charges Probably Made The Feds Do Some Research On Him. Dumb New Age People... Bet He Try To Say It's Because He's Black & Rich & Hold No Responsibility For His Own Stupid Actions.

    I have nothing to say about this slum lord but I hate seeing people put money on their face like that. I guess they don't know how dirty money truly is.

    Yup. And if the IRS starts snooping around and asking questions about his money, he might have some real problems on his hands.

    And owns property, as well as, apts in the complex. He's not as stupid as people think he is.

  • Allihave2say

    So he alluded to the idea that he was dealing dope?
    Those "agents" were on the take a la Training Day. They're still watching and waiting for the next point of contact. Now the other dudes on the take, the street thugs will be watching as well. You can smile without flaunting your gains. Dead smiles are forever. Choose carefully the pose you want.

    Look. Listen. Learn.

  • Allihave2say

    The white man is doing the same but he isn't posted up on the street corner, on the internet shows stacks of money in suitcases and crap. He's low key running businesses and living the life. It's great to have apartments that generate legal income but be careful. an admission like his of running dope will get you a federal money laundering case. Do any of these fools have REAL lawyers on the their payroll?.

    Build you a modest home from scratch in a gated community. Hire three sets of contracts. Build underground, build a hidden safe place in your spot and your home on top. Never ever talk about your crime past not even to the homies you ran with.

  • Allihave2say

    They aren't guarding him well if the feds rolled up without him knowing they were coming. He's stupid.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Please STOP MAKING stupid people famous. Both of these clowns ate IMPROPER influences and neither b had done ab dayum thing worthy. This exposure is NOT NEEDED.. And find something why the black community is regressing!

  • DragonSword Mccray

    If he is independent making money like that,that's why he got arrested.The industry don't want no afro black person being rich like them.
