One hit wonder, Paperboy, Arrested on Marijuana Charges

paperboy.jpgIn 1993, Oakland, CA rapper, Paperboy, scored the only hit of his career with his gold single, “Ditty.” The song, which sampled Zapp’s R&B classic, “Doo Waa Ditty (Blow That Thing),” propelled his debut album, The Nine Yards, to platinum status. Since then, Paperboy has faded in obscurity, releasing two forgettable albums, City to City (1996) and The Love Never Dies (2004). Yesterday, however, Mitchell “Paperboy” Johnson was arrested in Merced, CA for allegedly selling marijuana. According to the Merced Sun Star, Johnson, 34, was pulled over in his black 1990 Honda Accord on the 2900 block of G Street. He was charged with possession and sales of marijuana, possession of more than one ounce of marijuana and transportation of marijuana for sale. Paperboy is currently in Merced County Jail and his bail was set at $20,000.
