St. Martin Parish Jail

Rapper YoungBoy Never Broke Again has been released from St. Martin Parish Jail on $500,000 cash bond.

The rapper, formerly known as NBA YoungBoy, was released from jail on Tuesday, Oct. 26, after 7 months behind bars on a federal weapons charge.

YoungBoy, real name Kentrell Gaulden, was ordered to wear an ankle monitor on house arrest in Utah -- far from his gang affiliates in Atlanta and Louisiana.

YoungBoy's attorneys begged the judge to release him on strict house arrest in Utah near a man who mentored him as a child.

The rapper reportedly purchased a home in Utah near his childhood tutor. YoungBoy also has relatives and some of his children living in Utah.

However, prosecutors say the Baton Rouge rapper still committed crimes while in contact with his extended family in Utah.

Prosecutors also alleged YoungBoy paid his childhood tutor $600,000 between January 4 and February 1st for "celebrity assistant" services.

The judge ordered YoungBoy to hire three ex-military soldiers as around-the-clock security while he awaits trial on federal gun charges.

Prosecutors point out that YoungBoy will pay the ex-military soldiers $21,000 a week.

YoungBoy was originally ordered released from a St. Martin Parish Jail on Friday, but a California court had an outstanding warrant on the rapper. That warrant was dropped, paving the way for his release.

YoungBoy is now expected to get to work on his next album from a recording studio at his Utah home, although Chief U.S. District Judge Shelly Dick stressed that visitors will be limited to three at any time. The visitors also have to be approved by the judge.

YoungBoy is ranked No. 9 on Sandrarose.com's list of prolific breeders in Hip-Hop. The 22-year-old rapper has 8 children by at least seven women.

The 19-year-old Jacksonville native is wanted for questioning in the 2020 murder of a Dallas man. Dallas authorities want to question him about the shooting death of Reginald Agnew Jr.

Detectives believe Harden bragged about Agnew's murder in the music video for his song "Again."

Harden threatened to sue the Dallas Police Department over "false allegations".

In July, Harden was arrested after federal agents raided his Aventura, Florida hotel room and discovered an AK-47 Draco pistol on his lap as he lay in bed.

Harden was wanted for aggravated assault at the time of his arrest. The rapper was charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. He was released on bond.

San Francisco PD

Desperate times calls for desperate measures. San Francisco officials are paying gang bangers $300-a-month to stop killing each other.

Participants could receive an extra $200-a-month if they meet specific goals such as getting a job or going to their parole appointments on time.

The Dream Keeper Fellowship pilot program will pay 10 people to be "public safety ambassadors" in their gangs.

The new program is an effort to stem the gun violence in the Bay Area by paying gang bangers to put their weapons down.

Initially the money will be paid out monthly in gift cards to 10 of the worst offenders who are at high risk for killing people.

The program will be funded by taxpayer dollars, along with private donations and a federal grant.

If the program is successful, officials will expand it to include more gang bangers on the city's payroll.

The announcement comes after the San Francisco Police Department tweeted an image of a woman leaning out of a Cadillac window while wielding an AK-47 last month.

Police later seized the Cadillac, but were unable to identify the woman.

San Francisco Mayor London Breed, a Democrat, insisted the money is not simply "cash for criminals."

"These folks do not have any sort of income. And so part of what we’re trying to do is make sure that money is not a barrier to turning your life around," Breed told KPIX-TV.

She didn't explain what would happen if one of her "ambassadors" kills someone while on the city payroll.

California will also become the fist state to pay drug addicts if they promise to stop doing drugs.

Brooklyn DA

19 violent gang members were taken off the streets of Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn this week as federal authorities unveiled two indictments Wednesday.

According to Patch.com, 19 members of the notorious 900 street gang were arrested and charged with at least 13 shootings and other acts of violence, including 2 murders.

Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez announced the indictments in law enforcement's ongoing efforts to curb gang violence in the Bed-Stuy and Crown Heights neighborhoods.

"I'm confident this takedown of these gang members will make a difference to the people of Brooklyn, especially people who live in the Bedford-Stuyvesant area and Crown Heights," Gonazalez said at a press conference. "Many of these defendants were charged with multiple acts of violence and shootings, so there's a multiplying impact toward peace when they are taken off the streets."

The defendants face 77 charges, including the fatal shootings of 22-year-old Tracey Washington and Tyler Felder last year.

Washington, a member of the rival Hoolie gang, ran a stolen credit car ring and believed he was meeting a girl to join the scheme.

He was shot before he could exit a cab on Dean Street in June, prosecutors say. According to the indictment, members of the 900 gang "catfished" Washington by posing as a girl on Instagram.

Three gang members -- Kaireil Haynie, Alexander Williams and Tysean Devonshire -- were charged in the murder case.

Williams and 21-year-old Wydeem Rudd are also charged in the fatal shooting of Felder, whom Rudd and Williams incorrectly blamed for the shooting of a 900 gang member.

Felder was shot six times, including once in the head, on Sept. 28.

Waka Flocka Flame asked his Instagram followers to keep the same energy for gang bangers as they do protesting police who shoot petty criminals.

The 34-year-old Atlanta-based rapper posted a series of thought-provoking memes on his IG page that revealed his conservative ideologies.

In one meme Waka wrote: "How can we as a community beg the police to don't shoot but we killing each other still? We gotta ask ourself how bad do we want true freedom?"

According to the Washington Post's database on police shootings, 13 unarmed Black men were killed by police in 2019. While hundreds of Black men, women and children have died as a result of gun violence in the U.S. since 2019.

Waka suggested that Marxist organizations use anti-police protests to distract Black people from the very serious problems that plague our community.

In another meme Waka wrote: "I guarantee you if all the hoods in America seen eye to eye police a shit on they-self!!! [sic] Nobody can f-ck with us unified."

In a third post, he wrote: "[How] can we love our gangs more than our Forefathers and Ancestors??? And not understand the reason why they fought for freedom?"

Cardi B's alleged attack on two sisters who were bartenders at Angels Strip Club in Queens, New York in 2018 was orchestrated by her bestie Star Brim, feds say.

On Tuesday, federal prosecutors charged Brim with racketeering and illegal gang activities for allegedly heading a notorious NY street gang.

Feds reportedly gave Brim, who is 9 months pregnant, one month to turn herself in after giving birth. The baby is due this month (Feb).

The first-time mom proudly posed with her baby daddy, an alleged Crips gang member, at her baby shower last month.

Brim captioned an Instagram image: "THE PARENTS... HAVEN'T PARTIED FOR 8 MONTHS HAD TO TURN UP".
 

Also attending the baby shower was her bestie Cardi B, actress LaLa Anthony, and rapper Pop Smoke, who was killed in a home invasion early Wednesday in California.

According to the New York Post's gossip column Page Six, the rapper's best friend ordered the 5-9 Brims gang members to target two sisters and deliver a savage beatdown without killing them.

After a gang member sent her video of the first assault on the sisters, Brim, whose real name is Yonette Respass, didn't think the first assault was "vicious" enough, court documents claim. So she ordered gang members to attack the women again.

Prosecutors unsealed federal indictments against the "Bodak Yellow" rapper's alleged "muscle" Jeffrey Bush, 35, and her close pal Brim, 28, on racketeering conspiracy charges for their alleged involvement with the 5-9 Brims, a chapter of the notorious Bloods gang.

Brim, who is allegedly the gangs' 'godmother' or highest-ranking female member, apparently ordered a beatdown on the sisters for showing disrespect to Cardi, prosecutors allege.

One of the sisters was accused of sleeping with Cardi's promiscuous husband, rapper Offset of Migos. Brim (left) and Cardi are pictured at a Queens, NY courthouse, where Cardi faces trial on assault charges.

"I want hands put on them. I don't even want no talking," Brim ordered the gang, according to court papers.

Bush and three other female gang members then arrived at the Angels strip club on August 15, where they grabbed one of the bartenders by the hair, dragged her across the bar and punched her in the head.

Bush recorded the entire incident on his cell phone and sent the footage to Brim, who was doing time in prison for assault.

"Dissatisfied with the first attack, defendant Respass continued communicating with other enterprise members about the assault, and discussed whether the assault was vicious enough or if 5-9 Brims needed to attack the victim again," a detention memo alleges.
 

Bush and Cardi B, real name Belcalis Almanzar, still have assault charges pending against them in Queens Supreme Court for the second incident. Cardi, who was present but did not participate in the assaults, has pleaded not guilty on the assault charges.

A Houston rapper was arrested on charges of running a violent street gang. Police arrested Alexandra Nicks, 26, while she was in court answering to a separate charge.

Nicks, known as OMB Bloodbath, was taken into custody Friday on charges of directing activities of a violent criminal street gang.

Nicks is believed to belong to the 100% Third Ward and "103" street gangs, according to KTRK.

In October 2017, Houston police released a video showing four armed murder suspects trying to hijack a minivan.

Police said the four suspects are linked to an earlier shooting that killed 53-year-old Sam Johnson and injured 22-year-old Walter Fields.

Charging documents state Nicks financed, directed, and supervised the "commission of the offenses of Murder, Aggravated Assault, and Aggravated Robbery, by members of said criminal street gang."

Nicks was convicted in 2013 for burglary of a habitation, according to court documents. Nicks was an up-and-coming rapper who recorded dozens of songs littered with violent, gang-related lyrics.

Rapper Jim Jones was exposed by incarcerated gang banger Tekashi69 as a card-carrying member of the Nine Trey Bloods street gang.

Tekashi69, also known as 6ix9ine, real name Daniel Hernandez, sang like a canary in heat on the witness stand during his first day of questioning on Thursday.

The 23-year-old rapper testified as a government witness against several members of the Bloods in his ongoing racketeering case.

On Thursday, Teskashi confirmed that Jones was in the gang's back pocket. Later, under cross-examination, Tekashi also confirmed Bronx rapper Cardi B is a member of the notorious Bloods street gang.

It is a well-known fact that Cardi reps the Bloods. She often brags about her gang affiliation in rap lyrics.

"You joined the Bloods to advance your music year?" attorney Alex Huot asked Tekashi.

"Yes," Tekashi replied.

"You knew Cardi B was a Blood?" Huot asked.

"Correct," Tekashi said.

"You knew Cardi B made music videos with Bloods in the background?" the attorney asked.

"Correct. I didn't pay attention," Tekashi said.

Jones, who is a high-ranking member of the Nine Trey Bloods, was caught on a wiretapped phone call telling a godfather of the Nine Trey Bloods he'd "best get to violating" Tekashi 6ix9ine for splitting from the gang.

In a taped phone call dated Nov. 17, Jones and Jamel "Mel Murda" Jones (no relation) discussed Tekashi's comments denouncing the Bloods during a radio interview on Power 105. The men agreed that Tekashi had humiliated high-ranking Bloods member Kifano "Shotti" Jordan, who was the Brooklyn rapper's manager.

Mel Murda is heard telling Jones that Tekashi should be "super violated. Super duper."

Jim Jones responded, "Tell that n — - a he's not a gang member no more. He kicked out the whip. He was never a gang member ... He was always a money ploy for the gang members."

He added, "They gonna have to violate shorty 'cause shorty on some bull***t. He better get to get to violating."

"Violated" is street slang for murdering or torturing a gang rival.

Tekashi and Jordan were both arrested along with other gang members in a federal racketeering sting operation last year.

Tekashi is being held without bond in a federal detention facility awaiting trial.
