The rapper and others have been accused of distributing more than 100 kilograms of cocaine, heroin, fentanyl and crack cocaine across Long Island and New Jersey from approximately June of 2019 to June of 2020.
They allegedly got the drugs on the West Coast and used the United States Postal Service and drivers with hidden vehicle compartments to transport the drugs across the country.

The arrests come during a difficult year for the rapper. In August, it was revealed that his 4-year-old daughter, Lauren Maxwell, had died. The child’s mother, Turquoise Miami, confirmed the news of Lauren’s death in a public Instagram.
