Black Wall Street Associate Arrested for Money Laundering, The Game Responds to NYC Arrest

game2.jpgOne of California rapper The Game’s business partners, John “Johnny Hooks” Abbey, was arrested by New Jersey State Police on Friday (November 17) and charged with first degree racketeering conspiracy, according to the Star Ledger. Authorities claim Abbey has laundered over $100,000 dollars in illicit funds for the 9 Tre Gangsters, a faction of the Bloods street gang operating across New Jersey state. On Friday, State Police executed search warrants at the offices of two businesses Abbey holds a financial stake in, The Game’s Black Wall Street East and Viper Construction Management. Abbey’s arrest is the latest development in an ongoing investigation by the New Jersey Division of Criminal Justice that last year nabbed over 41 alleged gang leaders. He is currently being held on $750,000 bail.

In related news, The Game has responded to reports of his arrest last Thursday (November 16) for allegedly impersonating a police officer. In a statement released through his publicist, Game commented, “This is a ploy by the hip-hop police to humiliate me because they harass and follow me every single time I come to New York. I was in town this week to work and promote my new album, Doctor’s Advocate. I never impersonated anyone, especially and absolutely never a police officer.” Game is expected in court on Decmber 12th to answer to the charge.
