Jacob “The Jeweler” Pleads Not Guilty to Money Laundering

jacob.jpgJacob Arabov, popularly known as Jacob The Jeweler, pleaded not guilty to federal money laundering charges yesterday in Detroit. Arabov was arraigned before U.S. Magistrate Judge Virginia M. Morgan, who upheld his $100,000 bail. Jacob, who gained notoriety as the preferred jeweler to some of hip-hop’s biggest stars, was arrested in New York on July 15 on a warrant issued by the U.S. Attorney’s office in Detroit. The feds allege that Arabov helped a drug organization called the Black Mafia Family launder millions of dollars in drug profits.

    Peep game….. Russians run deep in the underworld, according to the movies that’s made. That doesn’t mean Jacob is THAT type…. I’m not saying he’s guilty or inocent but he could be involved…. But just cause you provide a public service to some under-world niggas don’t mean you connected…… BUT you do look suspect……

    It’s unfortunate that once again all things associated with Hip Hop have to be marred by allegations of crime and violence. Guilty or innocent it feeds into the Hip Hop stereo types.

    Tru dat, Jacob the jewler may be white but he’s certainly not American. Black Mafia Family is huge here in the MI, so you know Jacob is a baller and protected obviously, BMF wouldn’t have messed with him if they didn’t trust him…ain’t nobody snitchin, the fed is just tricky like that…somebody was slippin and messed it up for everyone for real…He prolly came out here to fuck wit B.G., who knows..i know he ain’t talkin and he more gangsta than I thought from seein his ass on MTV

  • jacobj

  • whiterussian

    First of all most russian are white but Jacob isnt exactly Russian cause he is from Tashkent Uzbekistan,so he is from central Asia.Most of the population there is Muslim but Jacob is Jewish.Second of all he aint got to be scared of some small ass black drugdealers because he has some friends in quit powerfull places (his cousin is Lev Leviev multi billionaire who owns a share of his company though a partner).Since his friends are friends with people like Vladimir Putin (yes ruler supreme of all of Russia) he has even something more powerfull then the russian mob behind him.BMF got a nice little network but the cant fuck with the ex FSB ex Mossad or even the russian mob.BMF is small change thinking the live the large live and got caught because the hang all the drugs money around there neck.Jacob is the only one coming out of this untouched.BMF needs to stop watching Scarface and get a little smarter.

  • Ian
