Reports that surfaced yesterday (June 1) claiming DJ Big Mike’s home was raided by the RIAA are false, according to karencivil.com.
“The story is completely bogus,” said Mike, real name Mike Wilcox. “While I do have a prior legal situation I can’t speak on, I can say today’s claim is absolutely false.”
The rumor mill began buzzing Wednesday afternoon, as websites reported a bust reminiscent of DJ Drama’s January 2007 shakedown. Reports said about $200,000 in cash and 15,000 mix CDs were seized from Big Mike’s Danbury, Connecticut home.
This year, Big Mike has hosted mixtapes by Styles P (Phantom Empire), Cassidy (Apply Pressure) and Max B (Quarantine). –John Kennedy
