Philadelphia rapper AR-AB was arrested last year and charged with heading a drug trafficking ring in North Philly. On Tuesday, the OBH rapper was convicted on that charge and is now facing a minimum of 15 years in prison.
According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, upon hearing the guilty verdict, the Who Harder Than Me artist blew a kiss to his supporters in the courtroom before being taken back to prison, where he's been since the original arrest.
Ab grew his reputation for being a goon in his hometown. He was infamously shot 10 times in 2011, a story which he spoke in detail about on Vlad TV. AR-AB's lyrics were primarily focused on drug dealing and toting weapons, and based on the court's verdict, he was being truthful in his raps.
AR-AB was thriving in his career, especially after he received a shout out from Drake on his diss to Meek Mill "Back to Back." AB said his followers grew by the tens of thousands after Drake name-dropped him. Even prior, he had a deal on the table from Birdman but he ultimately turned it down to stay independent. He and Birdman are still friends despite turning down the offer.
Should the 37-year-old receive the minimum sentencing, he
will be 52 years old upon release.
