According to a confirmed report, federal authorities in Savannah, Georgia have rounded up 29 people in a drug trafficking ring, including local up-and-coming rapper Respekk.
Respekk, whose real name is Rashamel Brown, received local recognition from singles he’s released including “Self Preservation”, which received hundreds of thousands of views.
After charging the group with almost 30 felonies including conspiracy, distribution of cocaine, crack, and marijuana, and gun possession, the feds seized almost a half-million in cash, guns with hundreds of rounds of ammo, gold Cuban link necklaces, Rolex watches and a 10k yellow gold pendant forming the numerals 914 with round brilliant cut diamonds. Prosecutors have also set to seize two homes in Savannah that were used for drug distribution.
The investigation, which began last December, revealed that the group used coded language to facilitate the operation until being indicted.
