Prodigy and Alchemist Arrested on Weapons Charges

prodigy.jpgProdigy of Mobb Deep and producer The Alchemist were arrested early this morning in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood after cops pulled over the SUV they were riding in and found a .22 caliber handgun. According to the New York Post, the pair was stopped after they drove the wrong way up 9th Avenue and then made a u-turn in order to obtain a parking space. When police approached the vehicle, they reportedly saw Prodigy attempting to conceal something in the SUV’s center console. A search of the vehicle turned up the illegal firearm, and both men were arrested and charged with criminal possession of a weapon. They were both arraigned later on this morning and released, Alchemist on his own recognizance and Prodigy after posting bail in the amount of $7500.

    Can’t even feel bad for VIP, you can’t be have ur vehicle searched for a Traffic violation, It’s in ur amendments nigga. The Cop say’s May I search ur Vehicle U can Say NO, b/c he does have a warrant, he can only search at arm length of the drivers seat….or it’s called “illegal search & seizure” , unless VIP & ALC agreed to the search, NYPD are very tricky the way the ask to search ur car, but y’all have the right to say NO.
    Now back At VIP, nigga u almost died on that plane, take time off count ur fucken blessing, but not you Gay-Unit soldier, u jump right back in the lions den,…fucken pussy

  • Debo

    I’m not exactly familiar with u.s laws since i’m Nigerian but then reading abt this and other similar cases is really sad. It’s shit like this that give other races and culture low opinion of the black man. Most are publicity stunts which are really pathetic. Instead of the black man to elevate himself, he keeps degrading himself. Sad, really sad.

  • Voltio

    Man… All u need is just to take a look at the picture of prodigy. He looks like a lil’ bitch mini me with those small girly muscles. He’s so short the 22 probably longer than his armsm, hahahaha… No wonder these pussy niggaz need gats, cos in a knuckle fight, they’ll get stomped tha fuck out!

    Brawler 4 life

  • iame247

    Man Po-Po be all in hip hops back pocket. You cant even get lost(literally) without the police pulling you over. We need that hip hop cop dude to teach us how to respond when pulled over by police. This shit is getting out of hand.

  • kudzayi in zimbabwe

What up Fab?!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Jenisis

    i aint got no love for the popo either man, but i damn sure aint got no sympathy for them niggas for gettin arressted. these fools was did some stupid shit that you know will get you in trouble with the law if they catch you. i aint goin on them as artists, but as fuckin human beings this shit dont say much for their common sense. i find it hard to even be mad at this shit, NYPD gives the same treatment to all black people, not just rap artists. i’d be mad if they got arressted for some random, falacious shit that couldnt be proven, but these niggas had some weed and a gun in the car. the fuck you need a lil ass gun for anyway, who the fuck you gotta shoot at? these niggas aint down for a cause or whatever, they just got caught doin some shit they knew they shouldn’t have been doin. tough shit mutha fuckas

    “Liscense and registration and step out of the car/Are you carryin’ a weapon on you I know a lot of you are/”

    “I ain’t steppin out of shit all my paper’s legit/

    “Well, do you mind if I look round the car a little bit?”

    “Well my glove compartment is locked so is the trunk in the back/And I know my rights so you gon’ need a warrant for that”
