Young Jeezy Implicated In BMF Cocaine Ring
Young Jeezy may be in a bit of trouble.
On Thursday (June 12), a witness who testified in the federal cocaine-conspiracy case against alleged Black Mafia Family associate, Fleming "Ill" Daniels, implicated the rapper, claiming he received kilos of cocaine from criminal organization BMF.
According to Creative Loafing Atlanta, Jeezy (real name: Jay Jenkins) has not been charged with a crime in relation to the allegation, and when asked whether there is an open investigation into the claims, Justice Department spokesman Patrick Crosby said he had no comment.
The allegations were brought forth by BMF member named Ralph "Ralphie" Simms in U.S. District Court in Atlanta as a part of a plea bargain in hopes of a lighter sentence.
He testified that his duties included unloading massive kilos of cocaine at BMF's stash houses. Simms said that he'd unload as many as 100 kilos at a time inside the basement of one stash house they called "Space Mountain," a mansion located in Buckhead, a community within the city of Atlanta.
One incident, in 2004, Simms said he was ordered by high-ranking BMF members Chad "J-Bo" Brown and Martez "Tito" Byrth to set aside multi-kilo cocaine "shipments" for two customers. When asked who those customers were Jeezy was named.
The rapper's name had come up previously in the case, but only in relation to his well-publicized friendship with BMF's Atlanta-based leader, Demetrius "Big Meech" Flenory.
Big Meech pleaded guilty in Detroit last November to running a continuing criminal enterprise. He faces a minimum sentence of 20 years.
Other BMF associates, including the rapper Bleu DaVinci, have pleaded guilty over the past two weeks, according to Creative Loafing Atlanta. Four others are currently fugitives from the law.
Calls to Young Jeezy's attorney, Scott Leemon, were returned, but he had no comment regarding the claims.
