Long-time Wu-Tang Clan affiliate Shyheim was recently arrested.
Shyheim was arrested in his Staten Island home last week during a raid by the State Island Gang Squad. Reports indicate that Police found .32 caliber Serrifile Inc. Terrier One revolver, heroin, a Xanax pill, and other drug paraphernalia in the Rugged Child’s apartment.
Since the arrest, he has been charged with second-degree criminal possession of a weapon and third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.
This isn’t the first time the Wu-affiliate and cousin of Ghostface Killah has found himself on the wrong side of the law. In 2002, he spent a year and half as a result of an armed robbery charge.
Shyheim first rose preeminence in 1993 with the release of his single “On and On” at the age of 14. He would later go on to release his debut album AKA the Rugged Child, as well as collaborate with the likes of Jay-Z, Big Daddy Kane and Big L.
