Rapper Casanova, whom the Federal Bureau of Investigation is looking for, has been indicted on a number of criminal charges including conspiracy to commit racketeering, conspiracy to distribute controlled substances, and possession of a firearm in a drug trafficking crime. Now, according to the latest reports, rapper G Herbo is also facing federal charges including aggravated identity theft and aiding and abetting a larger fraud scheme. As tweeted by the official My Mixtapez handle  "The 14-count indictment alleges that Herbo was involved in a defrauding scheme alongside eight other defendants."



 

Casanova was identified by the FBI as one of the members of the Untouchable Gorilla Stone Nation street gang as they announced the charges against the rapper on Tuesday, December 1. In the case of Herbo, whose real name is Herbert Wright III, he has been named in a federal fraud case in Massachusetts alleging he, his music promoter and some members of his crew used stolen identifications to charge more than a million dollars’ worth of exotic services over a four-year period, states the Chicago Tribune. Among the services were trips on private jets, limousine rides, exotic car rentals, a vacation at a villa in Jamaica and even two designer puppies purchased for Wright from a dealer in Michigan in 2017, according to the indictment, filed under seal in US District Court in Springfield, Massachusetts, in September and made public on December 2.

Social media reacted to the news rather quickly with one, sharing a meme, saying, "Judge: we’re going to need you to come back to jail/6ix9ine: You hear about G-Herbo owning exotic puppies," while another wrote, "First Casanova now it’s G Herbo, if y’all got 6ix9ine on payroll just say that @FBI." A different user further added with a GIF of a rat, "6ix9ine at his FBI safe house seeing social media react to the arrests of Casanova and G Herbo."

One more user said, "6ix9ine must’ve been in that interrogation room singing like Whitney cuz all the rappers getting locked up," while another tweeted, "So you’re telling me Casanova and G Herbo are facing federal charges but 6ix9ine roams the streets freely every day?"



 

 



 

 



 

 



 


6ix9ine has had a long history of trouble with the law. In 2015, 6ix9ine pled guilty to a felony count of use of a child in a sexual performance and received a four-year probation period and a 1,000-hour community service order. In 2018, he was arrested on racketeering, weapons, and drug charges. He pled guilty to nine charges including conspiracy to commit murder and armed robbery in February 2019 and was given a two-year prison sentence after testifying for the prosecution. In April 2020, he was granted early release during the Covid-19 pandemic following fears over his vulnerability to the disease due to his asthma condition. He was put on house arrest for the remainder of his term.

After his release from prison, his single 'Gooba' debuted and peaked at number three in the US, and 'Trollz', his third collaboration with Nicki Minaj, debuted at number one in the country. His second album, 'TattleTales' (2020), debuted at number four on the Billboard 200.
